Transmission tunnel is bigger on the Eagle.. And Let someone else correct me was there a difference in positioning front wheels or fender? Like a Concord sits forward more or something?

The early Concord/Spirits were different than later ones which were the same as Eagles. 4 headlights = the same but I'd sure like a Spirit front clip on my Eagle wagon!

The Early Concords and Spirits were the exact same as a 1980 Eagle. You'll see the square wiper motor plate in Hornets, Javelins, Concords, Spirits, and 1980 Eagles. 1981 is when Eagles and Concords and Spirits all changed together.

The 2WD crossmember sits further back than the Eagle crossmember. Essentially it's between the wheels where the Eagle has an axle between the wheels and a crossmember ahead of the wheel centerline. A threaded bolt hole was added for the Eagle crossmember that a pre-1981 2WD car will not have. In my 1982 Spirit that hole is there and threaded but empty.

I put a 1977 Hornet fender on my Kammback. It was very easy. It would not be as easy to put an Eagle fender on the Hornet because there is a high spot that caused a space in my Eagle but would require cutting in the Hornet. I think your 1978 Hornet was already changed in the spot I'm talking about but I'm not sure yet until I find a donor Hornet. I've been looking to grab a 1978 Gremlin front end for awhile. Gremlin front ends that year are rounded in places the Hornet is square, but it's pretty close.

Looks like Honeybadger could use some help with its grill.
