Smile 98 headlights on 95 scooby. Possible?

Hi .

I'm painting my car now ('95 Scooby) and it's supposed to be exactly the same "blue" as the header of this forum (what a nice Scooby!!!). I want to do (in the middle future) the facelift conversion, but I would want to change NOW my headlights for those new black housed or crystal.

Do you know if is it possible to use post-98 headlights on an unlifted bonnet 95 scooby? I can customize the grill but the bonnet must remain unchanged for the next 6 months ($$ )

Another question please: on the top header I see a blue "Subaru Stars" badge. Where can I find one? (of that small size, because badges of newer models are bigger).

Thanks.

Ummm. If you see carefully you will notice the bonnet is slightly different: the facelifting and the frontal curve. But I'm trying to imagine the newer headlights under the oldish bonnet. I can solve the problem with the grill.

I can solve that gap!! lot of thanks. I still notice a small gap over the headlights and under the bonnet, particularly on the edge close to the grill. The bonnet can be closed without problems?
