Default Converting my 9-2x to a wrx, need help

Well, I got into a small front end collision with my 9-2x and I need to replace my hood, radiator support, and headlights.

Now, in case you donít know, the Saab 9-2x is essentially a subaru with a saab front end that Saab produced mostly in 2005 and a few more in 2006. The fact that this car was only produced for 2 years and that Saab no longer exists as a company makes it incredibly hard to find the parts of this car that were produced by Saab, which include the hood, bumper cover, headlights, radiator core support, rear bumper, trunk, and a few other things.

So far I found a shady looking website that may or may not have the parts that I need, but if they donít Iím going to be forced to do a full front end swap.

That being said, if I do a front end swap I want it to be aftermarket, or at least use an aftermarket lip and hood. Does anybody know how tough this is gonna be? More importantly, what are some solid brands and websites I could get aftermarket parts from? I would like custom headlights, bumper, hood, and wide body fenders if thats possible.

Thanks.

Someone had a super sweet 92x w/ a hawkeye front end and fender flares on all corners. it was a silver color and I can't remember where I saw it. If you could find it, you could ask them how much stuff they needed to do. I assume it's the same as any other facelift, weld in the right rad support, fenders, hood, lights, bumper.
It was sexy!

Better have you wallet ready. **** ain't cheap. Figure out which front end you want. Then start sourcing parts via here or Craigslist, cheapest route. Then install these parts in the colors you purchased them in, or paint them prior to installing. Step 3 enjoy your new front end conversion and stop looking for fender flairs as most likely nyou wont be able to afford them and or go through with it. My .2c I am performing a sedan front end on my 04 wagon and total cost for parts alone $300 bumper cover, fenders, liners, steel bumper. Lucky they are one color wrb. So painting wont be to much of a hassle.
