Convert wide glide to FL

I have a custom softail sporting a wide glide front end at the moment. I am wanting to change up the look of the bike with a street glide fairing. I believe that I will need to switch over to an FL style front end to have this mount up easily. Am I correct? Also can I just change the triple tree to an FL style and keep everything else from the WG front end. I want to continue to use the 21" wheel with the fairing. Any ideas if this is doable?

It's doable, the fx lower legs will set the front fender up higher and look different with the additional rake of the fx trees and small headlight.
If you we're closer, I'd hook you up with everything needed to do the job, in exchange for your front end.
I have the flst front end on my fxst and want to go back to the original wide glide.
