i drove down south this weekend and picked up a grill header panel and hood from 04lvlII and ordered clear blacked head lights and corners off fleabay to go with it.
i got the busted header panel off and the one good head light and turn signal
the driverside fender bottom needs pulled out bout a 1/4 inch
i had to remove the bumper cause it interferred with the header panel and grill
ill post pics when they up load
i sheard off 3 bolts that bolt the header panel to the fender. im gonna stop the local jy if i get the chance and grab those bolts and head light plugs and emblem for the grill. i also need a tap out or easy out to get them busted bolts. i already drilled thru them

i stopped at the jy today and gor those header panel bolts and a cpl other things. im gonna stop tomorow and get an easy out for the pieces still in the fender holes. my stuff should start arriving tomorow, my head lights, bearing/hub assym, lower bal joints, ford service manual on dvd and some other stuff.
whats the easiest way to get them broken bolts out?
they should be the same but 98 has 2 turn signal bulbs so what i have seen done is just wrap one with electrical tape and let it sit in there because if you take the bulb out your signals will blink fast.
Would you mind making a detailed parts list?
Im a lil scared of diving into this sort of project without knowing all the ins and outs of it.
There isn't much to it other than the obvious parts like header panel, grill, hood, headlights. I'm not for sure but u prolly need a hood hinge on the passenger side cause they flipped them but Idk what year they started. U will need bout a dozen body panel bolts and 4 screws for the new corners. The light sockets are close but the 04 are straight and my 98 are 90 degree. The bumper needs swapped also, so I'm just gonna build me an ARP style bumper. That should be bout it.
