'00 to 2001-03 front end conversion.

After much research and time and money spent I have almos finished my front end conversion. All I have left to do is get a new ford oval, a powerdome hood, and some headlight retainer clips. Tell me what you think.

Maybe eventually. I'm not in a hurry to get one. I really want to get the powerdome hood next.

The corner lights look a bit funky. Did you have to rig something up to make them stay?

Otherwise, looks great! Mini F-150 much?

I'm not sure what you're seeing. I just bolted them to the header pannel like anyone else would.

I see what you guys are saying now. I wanna say it's the picture, but now you're making me wonder... I still have to adjust the tilt of my headlight, that will probably help with the look.

You guys made me think I was crazy! Haha, I feel like it's the corner just because of the gap between the piece underneath it and the housing. Aim the headlights and then see what it looks like. I still think there's going to be a weird gap.

ah memories...i cant believe its been 7-8 years since i did this. and i think its finally time to repaint my header panel.

Charlie, the extra running light that isn't used should be painted black or taped over or something. Otherwise it'll look like you have a ghetto underbody light kit at night

Yeah I ended up wrapping them with electrical tape and stuffing them behind the header pannel. Who knows it might just be a temporary fix, I might do the Ep-27 flasher relay thing soon, I'm not much for the ghetto fix jobs...
