A few notes on the conversion for those interested, since I did keep the stock 01-03 Radiator support. - The fenders are a direct bolt up to the car. No problems. - 04-05 Hood fits the 01-03 hood hinges just fine - The bumper fits the top and bottom clip points perfectly. - The Headlights are a 75% fit. They fit the bottom hole next to the radiator & the top bolt. However they do not fit the side that bolts against the fender. - To fit the headlights, You will need to modify the 01-03 rad support. The bottom part of the housing under the lowbeam hits against the metal. You can either hit it with a hammer to push it back around an inch like i did, or cut a slit and bend a small secion back. -You will need to relocate the fender bolt that is next to the top tab. There is no exception to this. The 04-05 Headlight tab is in a direct path of the 01-03 support. What I recommend is buying the L&R Bulkheads and the tabs that support the fender from hondaautomotiveparts.com.

And I'm freakin' stoked!!!

- The fenders are a direct bolt up to the car. No problems.- 04-05 Hood fits the 01-03 hood hinges just fine- The bumper fits the top and bottom clip points perfectly.

- The Headlights are a 75% fit. They fit the bottom hole next to the radiator & the top bolt.

The bottom part of the housing underthe lowbeam hits against the metal. You can either hit it with a hammer to push it back around an inch like idid, or cut a slit and bend a small secion back.-You will need to relocate the fender bolt that is next to the top tab.

Parts 11 & 15 are what have to be pounded/cut to fit the 04-05 headlights. 14&17 are the tabs that have to berelocated on 01-03 cars no matter what.

And now onto pics (Bear in mind this is unpainted...because I want to do a full reshoot of Inca Pearl on thecar.)
