i've copied this from my 'new member introductions' post ...

many years ago my 96 saab 9000 aero suffered a severe rear end collision. at the time the cost of repair was prohibitive. i've always wanted to put this car back on the road. i'm now thinking of re-shelling it myself. i've been offered a 92 shell but i'm unsure whether this would be entirely compatible. as my local saab specialist wasn't able to tell me, i'm hoping someone might be able to here.
