Hey Tyler.  The headlights I used are from a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis.  There's no chance of fitting these into a stock fascia though.  To make it work and retain the spirit of the original front-end (just modernized), I fabricated a custom fascia from fiberglass.

Do you have a picture of that?  I know that Steve Stankiewicz (sp?) with "Project DeLorean" put one piece headlights in, I believe from an old Ford Taurus or a Honda, can't recall which.
