Default Bugeye front end conversion for Saab 92x aero

I'm considering doing a Bugeye front end conversion for my 05 92x aero and I am having a hard time finding replacement parts for my 92x aero(as a good amount are discontinued). Would anyone know if a front clip would be sufficient in completing the front end conversion or would I also need to change out the side skirts as well? Any help would be appreciated.

I looked for 4 years for a decent Aero and ended up with a Bugeye. Love both looks and would still like an Aero, but not sure I'd put the bugeye front end on just because I like the unique Saab front end so much. Overall the Saab version in my opinion is a much better car as far as looks and mechanical specs, however I never found a nice one in my search so bought the Bugeye which I love. Hoping to keep the Bugeye and find a nice Saab in the future.

I love the SAAB front end look myself and would like to keep it as well. I'm just having a hard time finding discontinued parts for it.
