Default 02 wrx front on BK legacy

hey guys im seriously considering doing a 02 WRX front end swap on my 98 BK Legacy GT wagon. what all would i need to go thru with it? also IIRC the wrx fenders wont line up with the factory bolt holes but thats a easy fix.

my idea is
core support
headlights
bumper beam<own
fenders
hood
bumper
grille +grille sides
foglights<own

if im missing anything let me know.Also has anyone ever done/thought of doing this?

I think that is a project that even a daring autobody tech wouldn't touch. I give you points for originality though.

The hood line on the legacy is much lower than the WRX, I seriously doubt it can be done without serious surgery to the structure of the front end. Even then it is doubtful....

Oh yeah, why would you want to?

that was my first thought as well...

as for 07 front end to bugeye, that is essentially a bolt on process where you only have to weld the new upper radiator support on.
