Welcome and glad you could join us.
There's several different ways to approach changing out the look. Some of the pieces are near-direct bolt-ons (mostly in the suspension area), but with some cutting and tweaking, the body parts can be made to fit. Recommend you get to a local junk yard/you pull-it and find a set of front fenders and fascia on the cheap and test-fit the parts. Within generations, it's a pretty easy fit, cross-platform, less so, but still doable. Likely someone in the 1st gen sub-forum has seen this/done it already.
Good luck with your project and again, welcome.
