    Hey there Mark,
    I'm in Oregon. How much do you want for them? The sockets for the 97 civics are not the same for the 99-00? Can anyone confirm this? It seems that they should be the same. As for the bulbs I could just get some from Schucks or Autozone or somewhere.

    Thanks

    you dont need the sockets and bulbs. they are the same as the 96-98 ones. i put some tail lights from a 99 Civic coupe onto my 97 Civic EX coupe and had no problem and didnt have to use the bulbs or sockets.

    That is what i was thinking. Cool. And what exactly do i need for the complete front end? I am getting an si front end, is it the same dimensions and bolt patterns for all 99-00 civic coupes? I am getting fenders, hood, bumper, grill and head lights. Is there anything else i need? Someone mentioned something about a radiator mount or something? Any other ideas? How easy will the front end bolt up. With all the itmes it should be just a bolt on right?

    Thanks

    I have a 97 civic coupe dx and bought a cheap bumper from someone for a 99 coupe. The bumper would have bolted up, but the grill is larger and the headlights also hit badly. Everything looked ok, but it just wouldn't fit. Since it was cheap, I took a dremel tool to the areas that were hitting, it ended up fitting but the shape just wasn't right. I know that the grills are different and the headlights must be also. Just my 2 cents. :D

    there are some 10 mm beats where the fenders mount on the underside of the hood. they run along the sides of the car. i believe its 5 on each side (driver and passenger). just on bolt em and slide/lift the fender off easy.
