    parts interchangeability ?

    I own a 93 Allante, I found an 88 at the local pick and pull. I understand the motors and brakes are quite different, but would any of the interior stuff be useable in my 93? Climate control parts? Radios? Headlight lens? I wanna take as much as I can just for spares. Any ideas or a database out there that could tell me what would work and what would not?

    Headlights interchange, hood and deck lid do as well. front fenders, taillights should work but most 93's had only silver stripes in the lens. 88's were color co ordinated to the cars color. Main padded dash will work. Dash instruments wont, climate control tower wont. radio wont work from an 88 to a 93. Try www.allantesource.com for definitive answers.

    I scored a headlight lens for 10 bucks, sure wish I could have used the hard top. Anyone know how the headlight lens attaches?
