2002 to 2004 MY Conversion

Guys I want to upgrade my Impreza MY 2002 in to a MY 2004
In order to do so, I know I need to purchase:
1) Wheel arches (front blister fender) left & right
2) bonnet
3) Front bumper
4) lights
My question is: they will fit into a 2002 impreza? (I think so, as the chassis would be the same)
Can you please help me?
Thank you all!!!!!!!!

yeah understruts/supports etc are the same, can go mad and bring it up to latest model hawk eye (aka 06) if you want.

The 04 was a new Impreza not a facelift, so you would need a complete new front.

The 02/04 would have the same underbody, but the fenders, hood, front bulkhead, aprons, bumper, lights & more would be different (Big Job)

its a body work only thing iirc, aka doesn't involve bulk head mods or anything like that, just have to unbolt and then rebolt new parts, although its alot of them lol

(i shall confirm it with the clinic) cos they did a bug eye to hawk eye conversion and the onwer took delivery a few weeks ago, and when i said must have been a mega job they said its not that hard.

So I can go ahead with the conversion? I bought my wrx 2002 last year, only because it was a bargain, 200 kilometers, 20000 Euros....she was resting inside a subaru dealer garage and never used. But I always liked the 2004 model, now that I have some money to spend, I will make the perfect gift for my self, what do you think, is it feasible? (I dont like the 2006 hawk eye, don't like hood scoop, don't like bonnet.......)

I stand correted on the bulkhead & maybe the (fender aprons) but i think you would need a new front body panel welded in (between the two head lights)
