    You would more than likely need to create custom fenders by combining the front half of EK fenders with the back half of the EG fender. You would also probably need the hood. ALOT of custom work will be required to make this work and even more to make it look good.

    If you asked ME, I'd say don't do it the 96-00 front-ends are ugly IMO. The EG's were the best looking civics to me.

    But yea, it'll take lots of fabrication it's not really something to do when you're new to this. How new are you? Have you at least installed a body kit before?

    lots of fabrication.. unless you're good at welding its gonna cost some $$$ to pay someone to do the work..

    IMO.. leave it alone.. the 92-95 front is perfect already

    If you want a car that looks like an EK Civic, then just buy one...

    Haha cars and women 2 separate worlds there man I am an ASS-MAN until I die. Forget the boobs, they're alright but honestly the chest could be flat as a wall with mosquito bites on it as long as there's some good ass behind it.

    Ek's are just ugly but not the jdm hatchbacks.

    The little things. I like the small things here n there that are different on jdm vehicles like lips, foglights, and the tiny differences especially the emblems for some reason. I'm a real enthusiast for Japanese cars, never cared for American cars for some reason even when my dad owned a Chevelle with a hemi that he claimed made 600hp.

    And I'm not just on the jdm bandwagon, I liked them that way since before the parts became super-over-priced-for-the-new-rice. Probably because I was born on Japanese soil and liked what I heard from my parents about the Japanese cars they drove, moved to the states when I was real young but always interested in Japanese autos.

    So, basically, all the stuff that you can easily add to a US-spec Civic is what you're talking about? You're essentially just talking about Type-R stuff anyway. A bare-bones EK hatch from Japan isn't going to be that much different then a bare-bones US-spec hatch...

    I'll stop listening to you right there. Unless your dad is a sick, twisted, A-hole why the FVCK would his Chevelle (Chevrolet) have a Hemi (Mopar?) Pics or FAIL!
