    So, I'm curious after staring at the torneo euro-r conversion thread... especially after dreman said he was considering it...

    How much modification is needed for the euro-r headlight conversion?

    Not the torneo headlights, the type r's like these

    I'm considering a retro, but since one of my friends recently put r32 headlights on his 240sx I was thinking about jumping on the JDM headlight wagon so to speak...

    Anyway just wondering how much modification is needed...

    If it's only a weld or 2 and some dremel cutting thats easy... I just have a feeling that its requires a whole front end conversion (fenders, hood and bumper)

    You can use stock fenders and hood but body work is a must to get the headlights to fit on a USDM front end. Check out the picture below it can be down and I'm not sure if I will ever go that far but we will see lol.
