Think it will Fit?

I want something new and original for my 04 civic....and since there is lack of kits for my civic..ive begun looking at cars and measuring to see what type of front i could use that would almost fit a civics front..and my quest has led me to this front.. look at the lines and the way the bumper goes on.. i think with "little" modification..i could make this fit my front very easily..what do u think? Opinions please..





and here is a picture of the bomex front for our cars..



see what i mean?

ncirom2003 will become famous soon enough
i hope your experienced in body work and fabrication because believe me that will be alot harder than it appears.
what measurements have you taken because that car seems less wide than the civic a lil, and plus that bumper isnt much different than the one u got (if thats ur civic) but personally i dont care for either.
best bet is buy it and cut it right under the headlights like where it starts to go from angled out to down......... like right above the different lines of the bumper, once u did that rivet it onto the existing bumper (which youve trimmed lower part off) then youll slightly grind down rivets and cover it all with bondo to mesh the bumpers seamlessly then use putty to make it look perfect. thats the right way to do it because getting into fabricating and customising plastic like your talking about is way too difficult especially since it might be really cheap stuff

Even kits that are designed for our cars can be a HUGE workload for it to fit. The problem with that kit on the 1st blue car is that the grill is too big.... there is more room between those headlights then our headlights. I'm sure it'll be a good chunk of work for it to fit.... might as well go for a front end conversion because a lot of custom fab will be required.
