Anything can be made to work on anything. The question is, how much money and talent do you have. Keep in mind that when you start fooling around in the firewall area you'll be dealing with exotic sandwiched composite materials that are not weldable. Look over your factory service manual.

Front cap: bumper, hood, fenders, radiator support. Relatively inexpensive.

Front clip: same as above plus strut towers. Much more expensive.

Wrong description at a wrecking yard can cost you thousands more.

Not a problem at all.
