89 to 96 conversion question

I'm in the process of converting my 89 front end parts to a 96 front end. Are there any places online where i could find those parts? I know where to get headlights but thats about it... Thanks

I went to http://www.partsmaxinc.com

They have god american made body parts for awesome prices.
The fit is good and they are already primered.

For the headlights I went to http://www.headlightwarehouse.com
These headlights were cheap and were a pretty good quality exept for the mounting brackets. But I just bought the brackets from ford.

The header panel I tried was the partsmaxinc. Big mistake!
This header was cheap and was broken upon arrival.

I then ordered the ford piece and this was pretty cheap ~100
This piece was pretty thick and rigid.

Any chance of this conversion being cheaper? I've thought about it a couple times, even if just changing the hood and the headlights.

$2000 isn't too bad...here are prices for new OEM parts:

hood: $720
bumper skin: $550
headlights: $200
turnsignals: $100
headlight mount: $70
bumper foam: $50

then add for labor (maybe?) and paint.

I buy my OEM Ford parts at 10% over dealer cost from Steve in White Bear Lake, MN.
