    im pretty sure you have to do some type of bodywork. i have seen them around me alot. some look real good but some look like they just tried to bolt the parts on and nothing lines up right.

    Fenders, Hoods, and Bumpers are different from 96-98 and from 99-00, because everything corresponds to the headlights, therefore they are different.

    my friend's friend has done it(actually 96-98 front on his eg, i know another guy who did a ghetto one by just zip tying the EK parts on his CRX :lol:), but he did his buy welding in the EK core support, complete EK front end parts(headlights, bumper, etc,) and cutting and welding the fender. The fenders from the EG and EK were both cut in half and welded together(the front part of the fender is EK, while back is EG). hes showed me a pic of it; ill try to get it from him.

    im doing this for nopi in sept. 96-98 are VERY different that 99-00 when doing this. you need to drill out a bunch of welds to get the suport off. then weld the other in. (hood will match up) take ek fender (and chop off just what u need not the whole thing becasause it has a line all the way down that the eg dosent) and cut off the corner light part. cut eg fender accordingly. weld, bolt on, paint, pimp.

    This is what I found out when I researched the swap. You will need 99-00 Headlights, fenders, bumper, radiator support and the hood. The stock fenders and the 99-00 fenders will need to be cut. You then have to weld the stock part of the fender that touches the door to the part of the 99-00 fender that touches the headlights. With the radiator support u have to take the stock one off then modify the 99-00 support to fit. I am not sure if that modifying consist of welding or drilling holes and bolting up. As for as the hood fitment you would have to research that because I didnt even think about that until I started typing this. Hope that helps.
