      IIRC japanese manufacturer, made x number of kits and went out of business or at least stopped producing the kit. Very rare these days

      I disagree. The Italia looks better and more proportional.





      I also like the top they came up with for the follow up model:

      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      Here's a similar one, instead of the Acura EL it's the Isuzu Domani front.

      doesnt work imo.
      front end too busy for smooth body lines of older tahoe/blazer.

      not a fan of that style of car modification anyways

      SEC front end on a SEL, the opposite looks nice too imho.



      I really like the silver mk4 golf with the jetta front.

      ^ except for the lack of side moldings and the slight panel gaps, that's actually pretty cool. Was that an original Acura EL or did you convert the rear end too?
