yeah man.. read my first post up at the top. i know the hood doesn't fit, thats because its from a 96-98 civ. (the only one i had handy when i converted). i got the headlights off ebay. just search for ion tinted civic headlights. im gonna take some more pics later of the paint out in the sun

Maybe they don't realize you have a 5th gen with a 6th gen front end conversion. :what:

BTW nice paint!

Looks good but it looks like it needs more buffing or something. The shine just isn't there.
