Thanks everyone!

As for how I got the parts; I know a guy who works for J's garage in Japan who acted as my liaison. He even handled all the shipping as well.

I like the new look. All you need is a dash of coilovers to make look sick.

Dude that looks awesome. Glad it turned out great. Did the undertray from the IX work with the VII front bumper?

It did, but there were two brackets that needed to be extended.

Also, I had to cut the hood hinge to get the hood to fit properly. The other one stuck out 2 inches farther than necessary.
