04-05 front end conversion - LOTS OF PIX!

To make a long story short...

Had an 01 civic, got into a fender bender, and did the 04-05 conversion...before all the questions start coming through, here is what i bought for the conversion:

04-05 projectors (cheaper than oem, and i needed them fast)
04-05 fenders
04-05 bumper
04-05 hood
04-05 rad support (not sure if this is the same as 01-03)
04-05 grill and emblem

it was pretty pricey so I wouldnt recommond doing it unless you get into and accident and have to replace the front end haha...anyways heres the pics

OH and no one bug me about the damn SI emblem... in Canada your EX is our SI for 01-05 models

WHAT IT USED TO LOOK LIKE:





WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE FOR THE LAST YEAR:





WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW, SORRY FOR THE CRAPPY QUALITY:

Give me part numbers. I just hit a deer and would love to do this to mine. Don't worry I will let GEICO pay for it all. Did the parts just bolt right on or did you have to mod anything?

Nice conversion! If I had bought an 01-03 I would have done the same thing. I like both front ends but I like the 04-05 a little more.

If you sell or trade it in, what car are u thinking of buying?

thanks for all the coments, I didnt do all the work I took off all the crap and my friend took of the old rad support which was welded in, then I took the car to a body shop to finish the rest...

as far as parts... I've long sold most of those parts

Personally i got sick of staring at the 01-03 front end, and i really like the way the 04-05 looks more aggresive, i think it has alot of potential to look sick, but anyways...

Yo, your 01-03 was so sexy. I agree with you though, it has a lot of potential. I think you should keep it and make it sexier than you old front end. Good job on the old and new.
