Default Hello Ford Fans!

I am relatively new to forum blogging. I don't type so fast. Pleased to join the forum!

A brief explaination of why I joined the forum. Google is worthless, except to the advertisors. I have a 1995 F150 Eddie Bauer 2WD extended cab which I purchased new. I had a really racing pro shop build a 521 from scratch, loaded sans super charging or turbo carging. I make about 700 ft-lgs at the fly wheel.
I am trying to find aftermarket induction hoods and bumper like the lightning instead of the stock bumpers. As it is a 95, I am not having googled performance shops even addressing 95 Ford body style accessories. I hope to you guys and gals can help me out.

Drive train is built on 1970 vintage 460 block, ultrasonically examined. I put an Eagle 521 stroker kit in running 10:1 compression ratio. Cam was custom designed by mad scientist. Engine has aluminum heads, hydraulic roller lifters and rocker arms, single piece stainless valves, high volume oil pump, ported, balanced to within under 1/2 gram, piston heads and valves coated for nitrous or super charging, all internals Moly coated, Edlebrock single plane high rise manifold, Holley 850 cfm carb, harmonic balancer. Front drive is March Perfomance. Ignition is MSD. Exchaust a good set of headers with 2-1/2 inch true dual with an X-pipe and Magniflow mufflers. Am currently running 175 NOS pill.

Problems are repleat but I want to dress out the exterior with induction hood and lightning style bumpers, then repair some minor sloppy bondo work on the bed, paint and put on a nice set of wheels.
Can't find the body parts I want, including spoilers.

Oil precharge, new front drive snd super charging come next but later. Suspension to follow.

I am hoping you guys can help me.

Right now, that about sums up who I am.

Welcome to the board!

Have you tried eBay yet? You can usually find all kinds of body parts for sale there. Not bad price-wise either. Also LMCtruck.com might be useful.
