96-00 Civic front end fits easier, and still looks just as bad on a CRX. Doesn't match the body lines at all, and ends up looking really wrong when compared to the tail lights.

I'd venture a guess that the wheel skirts and rear bumper assembly would pretty close to fit without too much modification though.

The wheel skirts aren't the right shape at all, though! When I go pick up the insight junk I'll hold one up taking a picture.

Ah, I guess you're right... the whole rear end is a little wierd compared to the CRX.

I believe the 97-01 Integra Type-R has the rear wiper arm deleted in this way.

The CRX HF also doesn't have a passenger side mirror... Probably a big contributor.
