1st gen or 2nd gen EL?

Should be straight forward since it's just hood, headlights, fenders, and bumper.

A straight forward conversion will be around 1300 to 2000 with offshore parts depending on the velocity of custom work that needs to be done. From my exp. EL conversions are fairly easy..the only issue is the mounting of the headlamps and the front bumper otherwise its not too complicated!

Any conversion is $$$ if you get it done professinally....doing the job yourself should cut the price in half but it depends if you can do the work yourself or not!! I would not suggest anyone to do a facelift conversion by themselves if they haven't done one before!!

really? ive never really been a fan of roundish lights on small cars.

Ive seen DIY guides on this and it looks pretty simple. Just finding all the parts would be a bitch plus i am pretty broke ass right now

op, do you really have a problem with oem headlights?





you could do a 99-00 front end conversion
or just add eyelids if you're lazy, but EL front end doesn't even compare to the original look of an EK9
