I don't know what the difference could be, but 95-97, 98-00 and 01 from after 5-00 rad supports have different part numbers.

Just a update

Thought i might let everyone know how it is going on this kia.I got the front clip from the salvage yard and have got all the stuff off it i dont need and have put it in place and everything seems to be lining up pretty good.The whell well needs to come out about a inch but i was expecting to have to do some work with it.So tomorrow im going to pull it back of and paint it Then put it in my oven and cure it to speed the working time up.I was thinking of setting it on around 150 for the temp.Does this sound about right?I dont know what shops bake theres at this oven is my powdercoating oven and should work just fine for that to.
Im going to try and get it placed back on the car and put some screwes in it to hold it in place and put my hood and fender back on to make sure that they all line up right .Hopefully they will and ill start welding it back the next day.DOes this sound like im doing everything the best way to you guys?

Consider this. You are talking about painting it, then welding it in place. You will need to grind the paint away atleast a couple of inches, from the areas that you will be welding. You should then spray some weld thru primer on those weld areas, before welding them together. You might want to just wait to paint it until you get it welded in place, although, depending on how you plan on painting it, you could go back and touch up the areas that you grind the paint off of.
