Welcome to the forum! And from the far side!

I don't have the spares you are looking for, but I think john has a grille maybe? Can't remember the year. The pickup place sells grills but never cheaply unfortunately. They do pop up on scambay from time to time.

IFS with a crown Vic is unheard of down this way (I've never seen one) id say purely because we don't have them as a donor here. I've seen a few done with HQ front ends but it isn't as popular anymore due to the old kinger front end getting pretty long in the tooth nowadays itself. Most popular seems the imported mustang 2 style in RHD forms or the pickup place version. Both of which aren't cheap unless you are welding yourself. Good news is Alan in this subforum has some experience welding one of those in and may be VERY helpful to you. ;) Ben from the pickup place is helpful but the setup isn't what if say 'cheap' but does get the slick low.

Other option is the Djm beams, but freight is a killer on those.

Now please show us some pics, haven't seen a slick f250 for real here yet!

Hi, I should be able to help you out with headlight buckets, I have a stack of headlight rims too, no good on the grill, I only have a bent 63 grille, I have a heap of other cab parts, we wrecked about 4 trucks, I have a spare cab that needs to go & about 6 doors, the big stuff is probably too far to ship, I am in Sydney

Hi, xj6 jag front ends are best bang for the bucks,
pick them up for $300 to $500
they cost the same to replace ball joints and bushes the same as a Holden.

Be careful with the helix brand front ends, some of their parts I would use
,but the mustang 2 ifs use cheap parts and the install instructions crap.

I have some of the parts you want , but sorry I'm going to hoard them as spares for mine.
