Default usdm integra conversion

ive seen it before and on other sites but i was wondering how hard it would be. do the doors line up? can i use the inside of the door panel? it's all up for grabs on another site doors, fenders, hood, bumber, rad support, everyhting pretty cheap but im not sure on the labor of it. i would rather have the older jdm front end but if i can get a good deal on the newer usdm i might just take it. also searching around ive seen that the whole dash will fit but it is tight becouse of the doors would that problem be resolved if i put integra doors on the inside if it is possable. has any one seen it done? has any one done it? i was looking at just doing a custom autometer cluster and then searched around and thought of this.

all you have to do is weld a new radiator support , get an Integ hood, change the fenders to integ fenders, and make slight modification to where the fender meets the door ... a friend of mines cousin did this to his hatch .. you dont need to change the doors ... and the dash fits in perfectly with minor cutting on both sides

I would go talk to a body shop first to see if they know anything

sweet thanks. one thing that got me started was i need to replace my driverside door more of the bondo from former owner (fucker bondo'd everything). and the inside panels are not very good so i was looking to replace them and saw some teg doors for sale and then the whole thing and that is where it came from will the doors work to? the whole car inside and out will be getting painted as soon as i decide on a color. i was going to shave the handles becouse they need to be replaced anyways but now if the teg doors will work the i will probably just leave them im not sure. im looking at teg front bumpers right now for my body kit w/ the civic i wanted the r33 ahhh ha i found the r34 and it looks sweet. i will need to talk to the body shop before i buy the stuff i hope it doesnt sell first. squad can you tell be if the doors will fit also? im going to pm the guy about the dash right now thanks again

I did a USDM integra conversion on my 88 crx and it was more than just minor work. The fenders don't work out and it takes alot of work to get the lines right both where the fender and door line up as well as where the fender and the hood line up. It's no piece of cake let me tell you. I've been working on mine for almost a year ( roughly every other weekend) just getting it right. I also rebuilt the motor and redid the suspension and a quite a few other things. It's worth it once you come into the last stage but you'll have to put alot of effort into getting things just right.....

I'd really like to put a integra interior dash, and seats. I love that interior but I personally think the front end is ugly the Civic is a much better looking car, in my opinion.

on a 88 crx I would expect that to be rough

my friend did it on his 92 EG hatch ... it was done in 2 weeks

2 weeks to do a conversion...that's crazy.

i did my ek conversion in one day.

the teg looks a little different, but i heard it's the same principle, change core support and cut and weld the fenders..

honestly IMO, integra front doesn't look as good as the eg or ek civic.

it was just my opinion...but since you stated:

full time job + full time college student, give that one a try

i just took the time and scheduled weeks ahead where i can have one full day to do the conversion, i also planned out the conversion in my head, the steps that i was going to need to do

the only help i had was an occasional "help me hold this" help from my brother

but still, i give him props for being a DIYer, cause i did it myself and it takes time and creativity
