My bulbs are usually free from the junk yard (they always throw the little stuff in free if your buying larger items).
The grill was originally an Svt grill, but as you said, I cut the ford badge and mesh out. The material I'm using right now is some kind of mesh guard. I don't really like how it looks at certain angles (like the one pictured when you can see through it really easily) but it works for now until I can find something better.
And the hood gap can be traced back to the fact that all but two tabs are broken. I need to figure out a way to hold the grill up better.
