Default 04 WRX to 06 STi Front end conversion..

I was wondering if converting an 04 WRX front end to an 06 STi front end would just be changing out the bumper, fenders, head lights, grill and hood. Will the parts just bolt into the existing spots, or is it different?
Throw in some of your expertise. Thanks.

I don't know about the 04 to 06 conversion, but I've seen a couple guys on here going from a bugeye to an 06-07. I'm sure it would work too. I'm assuming you'd need hood, bumpers, lights, fenders, radiator support, and possibly bumper beam?

The only part i don't understand is:

"Cut bumper reinforcement at line.
Make sure and adjust that not touch the bumper and reinforcement."

Why is this done?
