Question Engine Hood E36 Coupe --> sedan

I know that a engine hood for a E36 coupe doesnt fit an E36 Sedan. But could i make it fit by cutting it? Is it big difference on length and widht? Reason why, is that i found some hot engine hoods, that only fits to cab/coupe:/

Best regards from Norway!

The lenght is about 1 inch longer for coupe hood but the width its the same. You will also notice that Coupe hood has vent verus sedan don't.

The difference between coupe and sedan are alot (beside the engine). I really don't know what you talking about interchangable parts (again, beside the engine, front seats, and most parts). If you have the time and patience, you can make anything happen.
