Default Facelift from a 04 to a 07.... Does it work? What is needed to be done?

I have a 2004 Sti, but I need to do some things to not so much clean it up but make it not look so beat up. Grant it I am gonna go start doing the amateur rally events. But I came across a 2007 WRX for a parts car. I was thinking of taking the entire front end and rear bumper and placing it on my 04. My question is, will it work? Or will there be a ton of work needed to get it done. Is it something I can do in my drive way? What about the radiator support?
I know a lot of things are sold 04-07 but do to the head lights being different I was curious to see if that would even mount up and fit into place. Please help if you can. I am looking to start this in mid July.

You need the hood, fenders, front bumper, and radiator support or whatever that metal piece is called. That's the only hard part - breaking the welds and remounting the radiator support (preferable be re welding it). Definitely do a search of like blob eye to hawk eye conversion or front end swap. There's definitely a bunch of threads out there. replace blob eye with bug eye if you don't find anything.

Search, it's been discussed and done before.

The 02-07 is the same for the most part, but as stated the radiator supports are different along with the hood, fenders and other cosmetic pieces.
