    evrything will have to be cut and welded hood fenders and all and it will look like shit, the only thing that looks good on those are the 96-97 del sol front or the 92-95 civic front end, but i guess its just what you like

    you would have to use the rad. support and everything from the rsx..its a bitch,takes alot of time,and you cant just put the shit on once and be done.youve gotta put the shit on,take it off,adjust,put it on,and so on..

    -96-97 Del Sol
    -92-95 Civic (requires a bit of fabrication)

    Those are your choices. Anything else will require a shit ton of fabrication and should probably be left to a professional...

    you can make any front end fit just about anything you want with enough work but the civic front end would be the easiest or the integra of eather gen wouln't be so hard. it depends on how much work you want to do.

    What two Integra front ends are you talking about? I assume that one of them is the 94-01, but is the other the RSX or the 90-93 generation? I don't think that the 94-01 front end would look good on a Del Sol, but the 90-93 front end? Are you serious? That would look like complete and utter ass...

    94-01 doesn't look terrible, but you can definitely tell it doesn't belong. 90-93 and 01+ would just look terrible.

    Well, the 94-01 at least makes sense. The body lines would match up pretty well. I don't personally like it, but I don't think it looks like complete ass either.

    The 90-93 though? That would just look awful. That generation of Integra is a lot more boxier, not as many curves. The front end wouldn't match the rest of the car, not even close...

    I like the S2K Front end and tails on the Sol, they would look a lot better without a rice kit, I mean body kit.
