    Thumbs up Stealth w/a 2g 3k front end? Good or bad?

    I love the look of the Cianci Torino front bumper and when I do a 1-2g swap I wanted to use it but it's only for the Mitsu headlights and side markers. I do like the 99 bumper but want something a little different...hell, I even love the 97/98 3k bumper. Have you ever seen, or better yet, might you have any pictures of a stealth w/some 3000gt headlights? Would I have to change out the skirts to make it flow better? I don't notice any change w/the skirts except for the louvers but am I missing something?

    Sorry about all of the questions but DAMN I want that bumper, lol. If I were doing the car in black I dont think it would be an issue at all but I want to do it in a different type of pearl white w/clear corners and black headlights. What do you guys think? Should I just make the car black and tint the side markers rather than go with clear corners? I really think it'd look bitchin in black but I love the Lexus pearl white (my car is pearl white right now) and I wanted to retain the stealth spoiler but find a 96 style for it.

    OPINIONS WELCOME!

    I'm doing a 2g front end conversion on my first gen Stealth. I think it's going to look slick.

    And I like the Stealth sideskirts better.

    I'm using the 94-96 3000GT bumper. I like the little teeth, haha.

    I like the stealth side skirts better than the 3k ones, it will keep it looking more like a stealth than a 3k, hopefully. just keep those three diamonds off it and it should be good.

    black lights would look good also! just dont do all black with a 99 bumper, cause thats what i wanna do!!

    Marc if you are to do a conversion do a 99 conversion for the front and and a 2G stealth bumper in the rear. Go wingless!

    It looks clean this way! Also if you are moving away from popup dont make my mistake and cut the headlight buckets, it looks so much cleaner if you buy headlight buckets and have them welded on.

    Like hans's yellow stealth!

    vroom vroom i drive a 93 toyota mr2.

    Thanks for the pointer, Eric. I really didnt even know you could modify the 1g buckets to fit 2g housings. I'm still thinking I will keep the rear bumper and stealth skirts...just looking to change the front end as of now

    99 or bust. I think a 2g nose on a stealth would be horrid.
