it will not look good and it will not be worth the amount of money you would have to put into it, the taillight doesn't follow the line of the six at all, not going to happen.

First off it is horrendouly ugly.

Second, but more importantly: Let assume you were able to get them on with oh say 40 hours or so of bodywork (the cutting welding expensive type) you would be 1/4 there. The next problem would be the trunk; as a flush fitted 350Z tail would leave the trunk lid about 4 inches too high. Basically the rake of those tails end where the bumper and lid meet. So you say "phsss, I'll make a brand new trunk lid." So there goes another 80 or so hours of fabrications since the stock hardware won't fit. Of course considering there are less than a handful recreation of the STOCK trunk lid, I'm sure a custom trunk lid would take a design and fabrication genius. And of course now you end up with basically a 350Z rear end that would probably cost you 6-10 times the value of the car. The project would cost more, take longer and be more problematic than you attempting to turbocharge your car with a fully built engine.

It certainly is possible though horrible.

i dont think its possible, with the way the headlight is made, its gonna obstruct something from the trunk.

honestly i am one of the biggest advocates of the phrase: with enough money anything is possible. But with this project i honestly don't see any monetary amount cutting it! completely out of the question. here is a quick PS i did of the only way i could imagine it. I can't believe i just wasted 2 mins. of my time on this chop!?
