I think for gooder functionality you would need to go back to elementary school and learn proper english. Then go from there.

At the top of the forum is a search button. Go to it and type in words such as "front end conversion" and that'll help ya out. None of us can summarize all that is needed to be done and honestly you're asking for a lot of info.

Pretty sure you need new header panel, grille, headlights, side marker lights, and you can get a new hood and bumper to really finish it off. For more info, do use the search button because it has been done before, might even be a how-to with pictures somewhere that will show you exactly what you need and what you need to do. Good luck :)

I would get the 03 Edge hood, they look better than the stock hood and if you search your local wreckers I'm sure you will find one.
