    ok i got a 1989 civic hatchback and i hate the front bumper. so i was wondering how hard it would be to either swap a crx front bumper or a four door front bumper. i was at the junk yard the other day and found a nice four door front bumper i just dont no what ill have to do to put it on there. i know someone on here has to know what all ill have to change to put it on there

    you do know you have to change the headlights, hood, fenders, bumper lights, and corner lights to use that bumper

    Yeah just go with a 90-91 USDM bumper. Don't think CRX look good. The JDM front conver. is nice if you have the $$. Try passwordjdm.Com. Pricey but allways heard good things of their products..
