Default 02 Bugeye frontend Converted to 04 STi front end "In 3 hours"!

ok let me make this short and simple. Just would like to tell ppl about my awesome story of my conversion which only took 3HRS to do so. Alot of ppl say it took them 3months or longer??

Long story short some ppl will hate me or say why did you change the frontend. I will say i got bored and always liked the 04-05sti look. And some will say the bugeyes are the best which i do agree but! I just wanted a new look. So in the next few months i will be getting a 6spd swap,flare's, and some 18*10 Rims. So its gonna be a process but anyway here are my swap pics!!




















brendan04wrx front end!! Hope he enjoys the 06-07 sti frontend i got him

Changed your front end in 3 hours? In an apartment complex? In the dark? Are you sure some poor guy isn't missing his 04 sti front end somewhere!? Kidding!!!!

Nice work! When do we get to see this Frankenstein? (pics look awesome!) Do you ever hit up the Pavilions?

lol..yea i stole it from a guy named brendan....when are the pavaillion meets?? Kinda always stayed in the shadows for meets etc. Cause was never into meets etc. But showing off my project couldnt hurt..

well the car itsself is a sti.. STi motor,Sti interior, Front end STi, now all i need is the 6spd swap.. I kinda miss the bugeye look but at the same time i like the new style now. More in love again. I was thinking about selling her to buy a 04-05 sti but! Y not convert it Cheaper than payments again etc...

yeah i shouldve but just not my style. The hawkeyes just dont seem appealing to me..04-05 are what im into now..Worst case ill just buy another 06-07 sti frontend again and install it.. lol.


Now that i got the conversion thing down now i can just switch frontends whenever i want.. lol. I shouldve kept my bugeye front end but needed to fund this project...
