They will not fit. You will need to buy a 97+ nosepanel.

Most people however go with the round style that can fit the 92-95 nose panel.
They are all black and readily available on ebay. If I were you though, I'd chrome the slats...

no, it's not a direct fit, but it can be retrofitted with some minor bodywork.
or you can buy the cheap plastic ones from eBay, they come in chrome, black, and gunmetal black. If you want an OEM look, buy the chrome painted plastic ones, sand the grill part down, mask, and paint black.
