Default Honda CRX - Tuned Model

Right now i am working on a Tuned up Honda CRX - body kits and everything. I have all the curves down for the car, but i still need to bi-rail them together. I Just wanted to get the front done first.. so i am trying to model this Front end.
(The car in the pic is a supra... not a CRX)
I can't seem to get it right.. any ideas of how to do it?
EDIT: The front end of the car in the picture is what i am trying to model - can't seem to model it correctly though.

yeah, I don't get it... if you're modeling a CRX, then why show a pic of a supra? :p

But what is it that you cant get right? The model? The birails? Be more specific and you'll get faster results.

I got a start on the front end.. still need to put all the surfaces together.. as you can see. How can i do that? I can get most of them to go together (only when the edges are equal length, but after that, i can't get them to attach together without it going nuts.... Help!
Oh, and another questions: I read somewhere about "making edges hard" so that when you convert, the shape stays the same. How can you do that, and is there a way to do that for when you rebuild a nurbs surfaces? When i rebuild surface, it changes the edges around.. which i don't want.

PS. CRX is better
