    never seen it done, and dont think it would look good

    the sol front end is better than the civic front i think anyway. only conversion i like is the jdm on a teg. i dont think you'll get any love with your sol -> civic conversion here.

    its all fixed now, i'll post pics soon, but i have a crack in my front bumper and a dent in my hood about 4"x2" in the center where its realy visable. so instead of buying a new hood ad bumper, i'm gona do a conversion.

    it looks pretty nice. I thought it would look nasty, but not bad at all. Seems like they should have came like that from the factory.

    I think it looks like ass. Its looks nasty with the huge headlights on it. It looks nasty with the small civic headlights. The del sol's are unique for that bubble eyed look. IMO, that is what makes the sol.

    BTW, learn to take a pic at 600x480 or whatever the resolution is. Not everyone cares to see a 1:1 ratio shot.

    the looks are preatty good, however the thing looks like it is gonna tip over forwards, it is WAY to big, maybe if you could find one that was more proportional then it would look alot better.

    i went to spedimage a while back and they had a del sol with a civic front end conversion and an h22 swap. the conversion looked pretty good. but to tell u the truth i like the silvia conversion a lot better...i dunno but thats just my opinion...maybe i have bad taste..hahaha

    :werd: best looking car from honda since the NSX and still I dont think hona has made one nicer.

    The EG makes the thing look too plain, the EK is just too big. The sols stock lines are nice dont mess with them. ONly thing I would change is the tails, they are just a tad too big. S2k tails would be nice.
