Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think you can put a 96/97 bumper will bolt right up to a 94/95 car. If you want a 94/95 bumper on a 96/97 car you have to swap out the "honeycomb" stuff behind the bumper because the 96/97 bumper sticks out farther.
Has any manufacture ever produced or will produce 95 style clear headlights for T-birds and cougars?

I agree, but it doesn't just give you clear lens... it makes the whole front of the car look different. You can usually find all the parts (used) for ~$300. In my case I had to replace several parts anyway so I figured... why not? It would have been just as expensive to put it back stock.

see my sig.
the 94/5 bumper will also make contact with the vertical part of the 96/7 header panel between the headlights. i wish i would have known this before doing my 96/7 swap. those vertical pieces need to be trimmed at the bottom, so the top of the 94/5 bumper will slide farther back, and possibly reduce the rubbing between the inside corners of the headlights and bumper.
Put the headlights on last. The inside corners will rub but they still fit.
ummmmm.....dont do that....just install the headlights on the panel beforehand like mentioned above. then drill the 3 holes out where the stock middle 3 push pins are that connect the header panel to the top portion of the front bumper. then install corners.
all you need is a drill, small hands, and some patience alligning the panels
