I mean.. Theres silvia fronts on EVERYTHING these days. And since I have prettymuch a full s13 conversion laying around and the front of my AW11 is in just ok shape.. the wheels have been turning. Not fender forward, but just adding the lights and grille eliminating the pop ups.

It has a lot of the same lines as the s13 and I'm thinking it might look really good. I'm just not good with the photoshoop to figure it out.

I don't think it would look right, the Silvia is longer by a good 6 inches.

haha you probly made it before my edit. I didn't mean the whole front, the hood angle on the AW11 is way too drastic to pull that off.

prettymuch just cutting and adding the light bar for the front.

This is all my mental masturbation though, I have no idea what I'm going to do with this thing first lol. I get classic tags in 2 weeks :lolhittin

The front seems to be the biggest pain in the ass, so many people have a million different things on theirs I just can't find anything that makes me think that's the one I want.

There's one that makes it look a little like an FC3S. but everything else is horrid lol.

Theres a strong chance a beating would be coming your way if you were to do that conversion.

When it's not in pieces! :lolhittin :lolhittin :lolhittin

I have a really bad short somewhere in the main harness so it's all pulled out so I can trace it. I spend more time under the hood than behind a lense. I've never had nice pictures of my cars.. I'll definately start soon. but the MK1 seems to have a fuel leak somewhere now so that's top priority. It doesn't end lol

Selling it, I'm not a honda guy at all. My thread has just gone way off topic lol.

The alternator went and I'm at the borderline of putting "too much" money into it so since I'm not keeping it, it's not worth it to me. I'll just sell it at a fair price to the next owner. If I can get $2,000 I'll be happy. It's super reliable aside from the alternator going. and I bank 32-35mpg on it.

But now I have 4 cars and I'm probly going to narrow down to 2... I guess you guys can guess which 2 I'm keeping :ohyeah:

I have access to my old drivetrain again, and i'm not too psyched about putting it in the EF hatch that's in the garage. Too much work and costing more. Run me about another $1000 to $1500 just to get the damn motor in the hatch.

Won't have that problem with a Del Slow. I'm not positive if i want it or not.... just trying to guage options.

I need a daily driver, either way, and there's not much interesting popping up locally, besides a Fiat X1/9 or a 1991 Camry 5-speed. (I think i would get in more trouble with the Camry, honestly... there's way too many 1mzfes at the local pic a part.)

I think it'd be more badass in the hatch you saw in the garage.... but i guess we all have to make sacrifices. Plus i don't think that hatch would make a real great daily. :hehe:

Yeah there's a few.... One B18C5 that i know of, one or two boosted D-series ones, a B16 DOHC Del Slow prepped for autocross, and a nasty boosted LS-Vtec one that moves like a low 12s car. My old drivetrain in one would probably be 2nd fastest... i don't think the boosted Ds are all that fast.

I'd swap a Del Sol. Del Sols are too cool, It's like someone crossbred a civic and a supercar. Plus they look cool and have the targa.

I think the front and rear bumpers would clean up the car lines without contradicting them. It would probably be tricky getting them to fit. It might be easier to make a fiberglass mold and just copy the style, but design it for the A dub 11. If you could pull it off I think it would look amazing. You could experment with exposed headlights too.

LOL when I first read this I thought you meant the whole front end, hood, fenders, ect... that would be one ugly bastard mutt car.

meh... my crappy 2 cents

OT) I don't quite understand the del sol, honda went through all the trouble to make it look like a mr car, they should have just made it a mr car. Maybe they didn't have enough ff cars in their line up, lol.

Haha you are all crazy!

Yeah the whole front swap would be fugly... I'm kicking around the idea of adding the light bar. I have to measure things up I worry that the corner lights will come too close to the fender lip.

Asside from that it shares a lot of common body lines with the r32 & s13 coupe hence why the thought came to mind. I'm coming to the conclusion that it COULD be made to look great just how long will it take. Some of the Body guys over at mr2oc are nuts! I feel challenged lol.

but I would keep almost the stock front, using the 87-89 front. It's very similar to the Chuki s13 bumper which is a knockoff of the silvia for US shores.

I'm thinking if I can get an extra bumper and set of fenders at the junk yard, I'll go for it. Not much to loose. The AW11 is my new project. I'm more than likely going to sell my celica, and all of my 5s stuff for 4agte stuff >.> ....

Hmmm.. Talk amongst yourselves. I'm not sure how I like it aesthetically but it appears to be very functional.

That front looks kind of like a Plymouth Duster or late 80s 'stang... :( Not so much the center, but the fender lines
