the diferences are slight but involve the shape of the lense so no youcant really mod a spec2 light into a spec 1 however ..you can fit em interchangably, so long as the bonnet is of the same either spec one or two..as the leading edge of the bonnet where it meets the light has a different radius. essentially they are the same (i believe) wiring wise . diferent beam pattern perhaps, due to different front lense.

look out for the spce 2 from the four door ...completely different wiring.

so if i wanted to fit them and covert my spec 1 front end into a spec two could it be done and what would i need to get and change? and has any one ever done this? :notworthy

you would need the lights(doh) the bumper the bonnet and the grill. (and the bumper strengthing bar as theyre differnet shapes)

but the question that comes to mind is why would you want to do this?....youre going to end up with a standard looking car, that has non standard parts and anyone looing at it with a knowledge of skylines would in my opinion be sus if the whole front end has been changed to something it isnt. (id be looking for crash damage) which can affect the resale value.

after market stuff is better in some respects cos it doesnt imply youve changed to look like a newer but standard car.

also you wont have airbags and abs (potentially) like the spec twos have so if you do change the front end youre taking a backward step i think
