    This is fantastic!

    I thought you were joking when you posted it in the "what did you do to your Mirage" thread.

    And you already had done the taillights & rear bumper, right?

    All done. Yep. Rear is direct swap, front is not.

    I assume you had to buy new parts. Not too many 2021's at junk yards yet. (Hopefully! )

    What about the 2021 hood? I can tell it wouldn't swap with a 2014/15, but not sure about 2017 cut lines.

    Everything forward of doors needs to be swapped. I had mine shipped used from wrecked ones in Thailand. The hood is the only thing I bought new and local.

    I honestly just love this car and loved the new look. It's paid off so why trade in when I can get the look and save the $.

    Looks good.

    How did you find all the parts from overseas? Ebay or??? Roughly what did that cost for the front end parts landed?
