i don't like this conversion as much as the majority of people on here, but if he wants to do it on his car, then thats his decision. damn are you guys ignorant? this guy asked if the hood will be a problem. not for your guys' opinions on if he should or shouldn't do it. okay now that the question was answered days ago, let this thread go.

If you guys are so worried about these del sols being so rare go buy one and put it in the garage and stair at it but dont drive it wouldnt want to get a rock chip.

I think the 99-00 looks good on it. Go for it its your car!

dam i dont like the 99-00 on sol i think the eg is better and flows nicer.

i would not even do any thing to the sol but jdm but i like it how it is its me.

ill give him this at least he's doing it by him self if he get it wrong he can put it on any one but him.

info i got make sure you weld that core on use high build primer on the fenders and make sure to guide cote be for you wet sand and take your time.

need any more just ask not every one here is mess up

This is honda-tech bro.. It's always been some BS to get info. People get mad when you ask a question because sometime before you, someone else already asked that question. I don't even use this site that much anymore.... To much flaming..

They try to hard to reduce the amount of threads started when in fact they should be trying to reduce the amount of flaming that is going on in every single thread..

And when you don't know something, your an idiot because you couldn't find the answer with the "Search" option..

This thread is over a year old and TyConway21 (the OP) hasn't been on the site since late last year. If he wanted to do this it's done by now. I don't think he needs any defense.

Is it your car thats getting the front end conversion put on? No! Leave the guy alone...he was just looking for some help. Give him props for wanting to do something out of the ordinary.

I know this thread is old, but I don't care. The search function of this site sucks, searching for topics from this site is easier to do, IMO, using Google or Yahoo.

Why... uh... why... would you ever?

I think it looks okay in the front, and that's only if it is done perfectly.

But it looks like a kid with a big head.... and kids with big heads are ugly.

It just comes down to: All the work, will not pay out for you. Because most people do not agree with hodgepodging a car together.

I am usually extremely supportive on HT, and dislike haters. But this is a different story.

i agree 100% alot of people me included worry about the forum keyboard warriors who will burn you because you aint JDM or whatever trends in atm.

build the car for what YOU want you have to drive it you have look at it everyday, and its a part of you and what you can make. putting a lip and jdm parts on a stock car is easy its usually bolt on theres no skill in that.

i think its great all the custom stuff i see this included, everyone should be a little more surportive so keep it up.


i havent seen any egs with dc fronts or del sol fronts anyone shed some light?
