96/97 Headlights/Hood Conversion, HELP
I read all the forums and I read all kinds of stuff about this topic. Unfortunately it's still not clear please help. I searched the forums and I'm still kinda lost.
I want to do the 96/97 headlight and hood conversion to my 95 Bird. I have a few questions though. Will I have to bolt the 96/97 hood to my already existing hardware or will I need the 96/97 hardware to bolt the hood up? Also, I know I will have to align the bumper but I've seen people make the gap from the top of the bumper to the new 96/97 hood smaller. Will this make the hood and the fenders sit flush? Is the 96/97 hood heavier or the same weight as my 95 hood?
I know I have to get the new 96/97 header panel and remove the bumper to get it on my 95 Bird. Are he headlights and corner lights from the 96/97 match up with my 95's bumper and fenders? Can I use my existing lighting hardware to power the new headlight bulbs, they are the same 9007 bulb right? Also, I want the BRIGHTEST SHINING bulb that I can use with my stock lighting hardware. What's the wattage rating that I will new to be looking for? I want the bulbs to shine white.
Are there any people that I don't need to buy 96/97 clear corners and headlights from? The last clear headlights I bought for my 95 Bird, the bulb mounting hole was too big.
Are there any bulbs to use that aren't as yellow are the stock turn signal color? Maybe a light yellow?
Where can I find these parts for reasonable prices?
