    Here are a couple of pics from my old EF that was modified to a 2000 EK front end. My cousin helped me convert this to be (hopefully) a little different. Conversion consisted of

    1. Pair of New OEM fenders
    2. Brand New OEM bumper
    3. Brand New radiator support, hinges, hood latch
    4. VIS Carbon Hood
    5. TYC Black Projectors
    6. ChargeSpeed Front Lip.
    7. Type R Grill

    sweeet. nice job man. what were the main problems you faced? Headlight assembly? How does the inside of the hood look? Not trying to see what motor but how you managed to gwet the headlights and shit to work right

    LOL Team rice is a website that did a feature on the carshow that I was at. I just snagged a photo from them.

    The main problem was the hood, I had to cut up a brand new CF hood and resupport it near the cowl area. Headlights had to be rewired from 9005 and 9006 to H4. I chopped brand new EK fenders from Honda and used the back half from an EF. My side skirts were already molded so that had to be redone. Heres a pic of my car before and some other pics.
