I am wondering the hoods have the same mounting locations?

How is the geometry the same? There was a guy on the forester board that tried to modify a 2006 WRX bumper to fit and gave up. The forester stuff is taller and wider in just about every way so it would likely involve a lot of custom shenanigans.

I thought somebody had done that. Hood, fenders, etc. Have no idea how extensive it was but it was a several years ago if I remember right.

I want to see pics!!

I do bodywork at home and a local here wants me to do the conversion for him. I want to know how it's possible.
I guess I'll have to replace the radiator support with it, but I am concerned with the hood fitment.
