as the title says i have a fair idea of whats needed to complete a s14.5 conversion. to my understanding all parts r stock s15 except for guards which include:

STOCK S15:
- bonnet
- headlights and headlight brackets
- radiator support (or s14 can be modified to suit)
- front bumper

CUSTOM PARTS:
- s14.5 guards

is this all correct?

also, are all the s14.5 guards u get from different shops (eg, topstage, garage13 etc...) all identical or are ther differences? even slight ones?

cheers.

do a search on it there are plenty of cars in members rides/ introductions undergoing or done...
mfx.com i think it is sell the complete kits for 2750,
look around this site,
the front fenders can be different, some look rather shiit,
they make the front wheel archs look way to big...
also check out the project car on here its been done and done properly it looks so hot!1
