Can you put up some pictures of yours and how they mount? Then I can compare to mine.

Hey guys. They DO fit, it’s just a matter of having a newer hood and grille. A user here: dtfdanyo put the older SF lights/hood/grill on a newer SF(the one with clear headlights.

Correct. You can’t just change headlights. It requires hood, grill, lights, and probably some small hardware holding it all together. The core and bumper should remain though. Most like the older ones, because they were glass, and therefore don’t yellow.

You can swap headlights no problem but you need is a new grill and hood. The mounting points on the headlights is the exact same, it’s only the shape that is different. I have the 2001 grill and both headlights left over if you want them.
