Classic / facelift bonnet mods

I want a Carbon Fibre bonnet for my 1994 Jap import WRX sti.
It appears that these are mega rare - although they are available for the facelift post 1996 classic scooby.
Can I modify the front end to take this bonnet - or am I looking at lots of grief?

Pretty sure the bonnet goes on with std headlights but ya need the later grill i think,only other thing is the intercoolers offset on yours i believe whereas later cars are straight so a bit of playing about needed with the plate under the scoop/seal-not done this meself though im sure others have facelifted theirs with little bother.

(if ya get nobody on here who`s done it ask on scoobynet)
