I think it is gorgeous! Great Job!

I like the X with the 08 front's! I think Archatans (tim) is awesome too!

Did you see pdombrowski's build of an 08 ex?

Curious, what's a ball-park number to change the front clip to an '08. I know it depends on the quality, how cheaply you can find the parts, but what's the table-stakes to begin this sort of conversion? Min hours and dollars....

I payed around $3k (from parts to assembly to paint), i thinks thats pretty cheap.It took them about a week to get done.

That looks great, is the conversion all bolt on or is there fabrication required?
