    Hello, I have a 1994 honda civic hatchback and I would like to buy a body kit. My front bumper, hood, headlights, corner lights and front fenders need to be replaced anyway. My question is, can I convert my entire front end to the 96-00 generation hatchback civic by just buying all the parts for that generation and bolting them on, or do I need to modify anything on my car? Has anyone ever done this before? Thanks,
    Tristan

    Would a 00-02 front end swap work?

    I have heard of doing this, and have put a 99-00 front end on a 96 civic before. We used new fenders, headlights, bumber, and radiator support to get it to fit. Not sure about the 92-95 civics though. It might work.

    you need to do some fabrication for a 92-95 to get a 96-00 front end. i've seen it done and it's pretty sweet looking.
