Default Swapping parts

I own a 2005 monte Carlo LS was in an accident and looking to purchase a 2000 same colour!! Need to replace hood!

Would a 2000 hood fit my 2005?

Yes, all body panels should bolt up no problem.

There are subtle differences between the 2000 and 2005, but the hood is not one of them.

Default Changing hood

How much was damaged? Were your fenders and everything knocked off alignment?

Hoods should just be 2 bolts on each side, align, then tighten it down. Great with 3 people, doable with 2.
