    what do you want to convert to? I have seen JDM ITR front ends, integra front ends, as well as eg and ek front ends. All are a waste IMO. The del sol is the best looking front end of hondas.

    pretty sure all del sol front end conversions have to be custom. saw one at a show with s2k taillights and accord headlights. looked sweet as hell. s2k headlights would probably look good too.

    i was just lookin for that pic. if i ever get a sol that what im going to do s2k back eg front
    but yes it is all custom. but this is the easiest of all of them because as far as i know you dont have to change radiator suports. but you have to take the back half of the sol fender and weld the eg part around the corner light together then (for the sol) you just use the eg hood and bumper and then paint and drive. if you want ek or soemthing else you need to change the suport
    and ek looks like shit

    now that im thinkin about it you might not have to mod fenders ill look in to that

    That looks shitty to me but you asked and you shall receive :D
    and i am not a fan of front end conversions but if i was gonna do one this would be it. I just think the del sol front end is the bastard front end of the civic :p

    you don't purchase something like this.

    you buy a front end from another car, bring it to a bosy shop, and pay out the ass for a conersion.

    sooooooo not worth it

    thanks for all the info and pics guys; i really like the clean, but totally customized look that front end conversions make available. too bad the cost is prohibitive...

    i converted my sol to 96-98 civic.

    [​IMG]

    and yes. majority of it is custom. you have to make the fenders...6" of civic fenders and the rest sol fenders, the hood has to be trimmed at the top so it want rub, but im using a 96-98 cervinis cowl hood. believe it or not the conversion wasnt all that expensive. the front end was $80(radiator support),hood was $500,headlights were $200. i could have saved if i wouldnt have bought the hood and headlights. if i wouldnt have bought stock everything i could have came out around $250 for it all.

    cervinis cowl hood=$500
    buddyclub bumper$150
    halo headlights=$200
    fenders=$custom
    radiator support=$80

    i priced stock fenders/hood/radiator support/headlights for $250 then i went with other stuff.

    well the whole car got redone front/back so i was without a car for a lil over a month.
