Headlights with ballasts and igniters, front bumper, and grill. You can use the AP1 ballasts and igniters with some work.

This has been covered...

yep, i got one of these roto-zip multi-attachment angle grinder thingies just for that purpose. 1 year warranty on it and ill be damned not to use it for every job i can haha, too bad in the demo it was only cutting 1/16th inch copper and nothing heavy duty like a bumper support.

You have to unplug the VTEC solenoid to make it authentic as AP2s do not come with VTEC. You also have to remove the power steering pump to fit the AP2's bumper.

you're also going to have to replace the driver with a cooler, better version for a true conversion...
