I want to put the front end from a ZX2 on my 1997 wagon, what moifications if any need to be done?
Same basic concept as seen here. A lot of work at the fenders and a lot of people begging you not to do it...

.....here it comes.....get ready....

oh god, let me be the first!!! please, for the love of all that is tasteful, don't do it!!! the zx2 is an ugly pointy turd of design that in no way should be combined with the box body wagon.

I wish they would have taken better pics of the way the doors and fender line up. I know that the accent on the fenders would have to be filled in, but not sure beyond that. I say go for it... why not?

What is involved in the fenders on the the 97 ups to do this swap? I had the front end for my 99 sedan and it looked like a good match but the car got totaled before I could do the swap. I got a 95 wagon after that and like my gt front on it so I sold the frontend but now that I have a 97 wagon I think I want to do the ZX2 swap to it again. I just hate the front on the 97 ups. It looks stupid and I would take any other front on it realy.

There is another easer option for changing the look of the front. Have you ever considered a Tracer bumper swap? Should be alot less involved than the complete zx2 swap. Looks good to.

That does look a bunch better but it's the headlights that makes me want to loose my lunch the most. They are just too big in my mind for the car. The rest of it looks pretty nice though.

You know I have been looking around at the tracers for the past hour or so and they are starting to grow on me a bit. I'm thinking that bumper and maybe a set of the black headlights might not look too bad on a black car after all. Now the problem I have is the places I have looked at say they have the tracer front bumper but when you look at the pic it;s just the Scort one. Anyone know a place online that will ship one to Canada? I still like the ZX2 front and think it would look nice on the wagon so I may just do that anyways. But I like the fact that that bumper is different but no one elso on the roads around here will know that it's not the stock bumper.

Your not alone I like the zx2 front end also (I also hate the bug-eyed look of my SE)
