I haven't tried yet. But it should all line up. I did something similar with my sunfire and a cavalier frontend swap.

I wish I kept that car. I ended up making somewhat of a interesting daily driver out of it. The neons that were on it ended up all busting they were stupid anyways...got them from a friend. This was before I lowered the car. The car was initially white the cavalier with the white sunfire frontend was my old frontend

As you can also see I relocated the spoiler from the rear of the window to the back of the deck. It gave a slicker look. The the biggest mistake I made was painting it copper. I wish I had just kept it white.

Parts list swap.

Headlights
Fenders
Hood
Bumper
Bumper support
Bumper brackets
Directionals
Fog lights
Grill's
Possible hood latch
Possible hood hinge


Depending on how doors line up and look it could even be a possibility. I'm probably going to buy the parts and swap them and paint to match. I haven't seen anyone do this swap yet.

Pay close attention to the lines of the side of the car where the fender and doors are...the 2010+ has two creases right around my pony logo, the 05-09 has just one on lower fender, and if the lower one doesnt align it will look stupid. As far as fitment, the chassis is still s197, you should'nt have an issue.

Yeah it might look kinda cool like that...all depends...one thing that did just cross my mind was the antenna placement.
