02-04 to 05-06 conversion

how much does a full 05-06 front and rear conversion usually cost for parts and everything before paint. not worried about the price for painting because i can paint my own parts. really thinking about doing this over the summer because I'm repainting my car so might as well do this before hand.

You might be able to get the parts cheaper than $1000, if you are lucky as hell..... but the conversion has become more popular than before...... so I don't know
good luck

A good set of headlights and tailights cost between $150.00 the cheapest, $300.00 the highest (each) ..... so expect to spend around $500.00 on both (if you are lucky)....

The front and back bumpers cost between $100.00 the cheapest, $250.00 the highest... so expect to spend around $350.00 for both (if you are lucky)...

Then another $100.00 on miscellaneous stuff.... brackets, upper/lower grill, bolts, gaskets......

Then, the paint.......

I got oem headlights like new for 320 shipped.. new oem bumper for 250.. brackets/lower/upper grille from a local acura for 75.. and mugen lip for 250.. paint for both was 300..
Could probably get it a little cheaper.. I wanted to go with oem parts though and preferred new.

~$1195 for me.. minus the mugen lip and paint would probably be around ~850-1000 (cheaper to paint both pieces together for me)

For the rear.. I'm still considering doing it but new bumper from acura is like 290, tails you can usually get for ~200 and brackets/misc say 50 bucks.. say 200 for paint..

~$740 and i know local dealer will do 240 for a rear aspec lip(painted in 05-06 colors though ) so if you'd want that plus paint.. probably ~1000-1100 for the full rear w/aspec lip. Again with oem parts.. Could probably find cheaper elsewhere.

I went with OEM, as well

$1000 for the front conversions, including paint..
and $1200 for the rear conversion, including paint and JDM taillights and aspec lip

and that was back when doing the conversion wasn't as popular as it is now
