exactly. people judge the book by its cover. of course the 01-03 looks good, it was taken with prolly a DSLR camera! and the 04-05 look was prolly taken with a camera phone lol.

but in all serioiusness, I would love to have the 04-05 front. but it would stay stock without a lip, its more aggressive looking than the stupid 01-03 that curls under and looks like its scared and bitchy

I really want to do this to my 02 EX. Now is the perfect time. So please let me know how difficult is was and what special parts I will need. For example, did the fenders and all that just mount up or did you need extra brackets and such?

Please let me know.

Looks good bro.... If I wanted to do a rsx front conversion would I need these parts also:

Head lights
fenders
bumper
hood
rad support
grill and emblem

damn wish you had a silver car, we could just switch up front ends. i have an 03 and i rather have the 04-05 front end.

i like the 04-05 front end, the 01-03 front end makes the car look like an older civic and i like the more aggressive look the 04-05 has. the 04's fog lights, stock grill, no gay hood lip, just looks better all around to me. the honda aero kit or 04 tsunami kit looks great on the 04 front end and then you have all the 99-00 lips that fit.

Car was done at Velocity, they had a wide body fit they were working on too!!!

Honestly i think doing the conversion is easy if you dont have to mess with the rad support, everything is just bolt on, in my case i had to pretty much do the whole front including radiator, fans, ac, weld in new rad support, light brackets, all the litte things like bolts, screws, headlight brackets...etc...

BUT if you can find someone to swap just fender, hood, lights, light brackets (i think) and bumper grill, your set!! not so sure about the rad support!!! when i compared it too the old one, it seemed the same but ya never know

As for the RSX conversion I would assume you would need the exact same things except all RSX parts...not sure if fenders would line up properly with the doors?

i'll throw a parts lists soon..most of it was aftermarket though so not sure about honda part numbers...

Thanks for the information dude. Pretty soon we'll know if you can do the conversion using the 01-03 radiator support. I'm just going to fix mine (Damage isn't that bad...Nowhere near as bad as yours) and try to put everything on. If it works, great. If not, I'll just put off the conversion until I get an 05 radiator support. BTW, here is my parts list

Bumper
Headlights
Fenders
Hood
Front Reinforcement
Hood hinges
Bumper Filler (Bottom headlight frames)
Front Undertray
Wheel Well Splash Guards

I think a stock 04-05 looks better than a stock 01-03, but, due to your original mods, I think it looked better to begin with. I also think, however, that if you keep it (and i hope you do) that it will look even better than it did originally once you get done modding the new front end with a lip, maybe a grill, etc. Too bad you can't make a DIY for this, as it seems like there may be some interest.

I'll be taking pictures of the conversion as it's done....perhaps I should just make it a full blown DIY?

Since I need a Rad Support anyway. I will just buy the 04 05 and then everything else should just bolt right up? If so this is too easy.

i just realized that 01-03 civics look more well proportioned.... 04/05 drivers are going to flame me for saying this, haha but i own an 04 myself. I'm actually looking to purchase a beater, 01 civic in white.

tricky man nice to see you up and running again! honestly i loved the way ur car looked like, but at the same time im digging the conversion cause it looks more aggressive. i know i asked you this b4 but i 4got the answer.

you've always had a wicked drop, can u tell me how much of a drop it is? im guessing 2" all around?

and are you on coilovers or sleeves?

i have koni yellows now not sure if i should just get sleeves or save up or coils. btw i dont plan to track the car at all juss show purposes.

I think a DIY would be cool, but again I cant take credit for this...VELOCITY auto body in toronto did this one...

To answer the drop question I am on KONI/GC combo...I would guess 2.5 all the way around? not sure haha but its too low to drive when theres snow out thats all i know

heres what i've been driving in the meantime haha
