I hear you, this is what I used to drive before I recently bought my evo.



I used to have evo 4 sideskirts, rear bumper, rear wing and I had an evo 5 front bumper that I never got round to putting on (couldn't be bothered dealing with the wide fenders and such).

Your car looks great, keep up the good work.

My thread is a build diary not a diy/how to. I only posted to set the record straight for others who may be interested in this swap.
Of course I declined you wanted 500 for fenders if I see some thing cheaper of course I will get something cheaper. I'm not hating on you but not all the info was posted up if you want to add more info to this thread I'm all thumbs up bro. Someone previous told me how to do it and it turned out to be a success. Plus my car finally drives

Do you have any pix from the side? It looks like on the angle it was fine but as turbotime pointed out it doesnt always work. I wasnt quite clear what the actual fix on the centering is anyway. Is it just Evo LCA or is there more? It sounded like the evo push it too forward to the front end?

thanks

way to go to respond to it as you complain about it. I know that everybody looking through these threads doesnt always check the dates. If i find an 8 year old thread on the topic im researching i will still try to get any questions i have answered. The more time that has passed just means the more people have figured it out. Not everybody posts what needs to be done, let alone all of the details..

i know for my 02 and 03 lancers i would have to modify the wiring for the evo headlights to work properly. Im not very familiar with the 04 body styles but if your low beam and high beam are in the same bulb you will need to modify as well. The evo has seperate low beam and high beam bulbs.
