ok , so i have recently been fascinated by knowing that the dc5 front end will fit on my 02 civic hatch.
when i first got my hatch the body on it was in mint condition. but i have recently gathered a little bit of damage thanks to a broken ball joint. which royally screwed up my fender and i have had a gash in my hood for the longest time.
i think this conversion would be kinda neat!

i just need to know if anyone truly knows if it is a direct bolt on.
thanks, TAY

Shit.. will it fit? I didn't THINK it would...

If it was bolt on I'd say give it a try but I'm doubting it is.. but what the fuck do I know?

IMO i would'nt do it, but If it works then it's different. At least its not like putting a skyline bumper on a honda or something. So i say has potential. . your car do what ya want

It has been done before, and in my opinion, it didn't look good. I remember seeing it on ephatch.com, and I'm unsure of how the fitment was. I can say the RSX noses are a tad bit longer, b/c they can put on RBC intake manifolds with no clearance issues. While the RBC on the Si, you'll need to trim the radiator support like I had to do. If you are going to do this, I would advise making many measurements before tearing your car apart. Sure it may look similar, but you wouldn't want gaps at the fender to door, hood to windshield, etc...
