There have been a couple. Check cardomain. One of the guys has a yellow one. He is actually on the first or second page of Del Sol's last time I looked.

I think teg front ends look horrible on del sols. EG front end is freakin' awesome on a sol though.

I personally like the way the sol looks without any conversion.

i know this is alittle off the topic with my question with the front end.. but while i have it all apart, i was going to pull hte motor and rebuild it. right now it has hard ass race mounts that are so rock hard.. it vibrates soo bad.. with the motor swap where do i get hte new mounts. i dont know much about this car except it was my buddies and now he is in the service so i bought it off him for a grand

if you buy a full swap, it will come with new mounts, or you can even upgrade to hasport motor mounts.

check out hmotorsonline.com for engines.

With any front end conversion you'll have to weld the front of the new fenders to the back section of the old fenders. It is a lot of work and will cost a lot more money than just going back stock.

No for mounts, get them elsewhere.

You can get stock ones at Advanced Auto Parts, NAPA, and Pep boys.

I've seen a Del Sol with a JDM ITR front conversion and it looked okay, but the Del Sol requires a Widebody in the rear because the ITR is wider than a Del Sol so you'll need to put a widebody on the rear of the Sol... I would go with either the stock front or just do what B16vtec said and buy the EG front and install that, i think that my front would look great on a Del Sol.. I still like the Stock Sol front more, it better fits the Del Sol than any other Del Sol. and i hate S2000 tail lights on a Del Sol!

If you were going to spend a lot of money and wanted to be different, but the ME bodykit. It will roughly cost you about $8,000 and that's for the kit alone. There is a guy on cardomain who did it. Talk about Sweet.
