I am trying to find information about an engine 996 engine hood design change. I have a 02 C2 , and want to have the classic reflector strip between the rear lights on the hood as on the C4S. I thought about a sticker solution , but which seemed ugly. Then I thought to take a factory CS4 hood - which I hoped to swap easily (...just bolts...30 min or so...). Got a grey OEM unit from a 03 CS4 on ebay (w/o spending a fortune as most sellers ask for) , and hoped a paint job is all I would need.... The hood featured quite a few changes in design (the whole thing is from fiber glass (vs. steel)), and the clearance to the body panels is still there, yet noticeable smaller. The latter may workable (Fiberglass base could be made slightly narrower before getting it painted....) . However, where I am stuck is that the hood seems a few cm longer, and does not fit due to contact with bumper. My impression is that I need at least a different bumper as well as rear lights. My question would be, whether sb. tried this type of conversion before/whether this is possible at all w/o major body change. Attaching 2 pix with both hoods on my car...
