Okay, how would I make them fit? Would I need to replace the hood?

Geez, I'm not sure. I would think that there would be a number of components you would have to replace. Someone else with more knowledge than me would have to answer that.

What you're looking to do is give your car a facelift, you would need to change a number of parts, basically the front clip. That's the two quarter panels, hood, grilles, and headlights.

Taillights from a facelift sedan will physically fit. You have to run some wires and get a new LCM if you want them to work though.
