Default 06 to 02 front clip swap

So like the title says, at some point I want to swap the cat eye for the rounded front end. I know Iíll need the hood, fenders, grill and lights, bumper, and bumper brackets. Anything else besides that?

the plastic brackets that hold the headlights needs to change as well. you may find some things dont line up the same or bolt on the same on the inner fender when you do the swap but i dont think there is much to make it an issue.

Pretty sure the entire cooling stack and panel (having a damn brain fart on the actual name of the item) are different. Be way ahead with the entire thing off of a donor. Unless you just make the intercooler and such fit.
