go to www.importfan.com and you can buy the basics for the S14, by the fenders and the front fender(S14) just pick which ones you like, then for the S14 lights go to ebay.com, you can find them cheap there sometimes

you need a kit. the S14 front end isnt just a bolt-on, unless you buy a kit.

your largest problem is not the fenders but the front bumper. S14 are some where around 4 inches wider so the bumper needs to be shortened. I want to do the same but there is so much custom work that is involved. If you do it i would love to pictures and a how to

i heard that because the bumper is wider , u would need to get the wide fenders created for this conversion. and that the only custom work would be the light brackets.
i was wondering if the s14 hood would fit with the stock 240sx hood hinges.
please correct me if i am wrong and give me any additional information if you have any.
btw i have a 89 240sx coupe

Go take classes and learn how to weld, then take classes and learnto do body work. When I get bored of my lazy eyes i'll do a how-to on S14 or S15 conversions using a welder and a bucket of bondo. =)

go to www.JSPEC.com Look under the body mods section. it'll tell you what all you need to get started.

I'm doing the conversion too. Your gonna need alot of stuff. I think you can use a pair of (R)S13 widebody fenders. Not sure though.

1992 CS13-- Getting overhauled for WMD status.

for anyone who cares

i recently went to a body shop who did this conversion and a bit of custom work is required. Aside from light brackets , the other bit of required custom work are the fenders. This shop actually got 2 pairs of fenders ( one s13 and one s14) and cut each pair in half and welded them together.

Jspec says u need s15 hood hinges but this shop said that the s14 hood fit the s13 hinges without a problem.

One more thing: Jspec has this s13 to s14 front end conversion starting at around 2500. (which is a bit much cuz im gettin a quality s15 conversion for 1700)
