PostSubject: Euro Headlights for the wagon   Thu Sep 16, 2010 6:59 pm

Wife asked me what I wanted for my birthday.
I found these on ebay for $104 shipped.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/91-92-93-94-95-96-CHEVY-CAPRICE-LS-CLEAR-HEADLIGHT-PAIR-/170390266262?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item27ac0d2196
They even have the little light deflector in front of the bulbs. HIDs are also on the way. cheers





I got one installed with my other clear corners before it started raining.

When's your birthday?

I like 'em. They will rawk with the HID's! Be sure to aim them low! Also, get those clear corners off there and use the corners that came with them!!! The non-euro clears do NOT work with the clear headlights!

And I like the amber lenses. Mine have them.

So I finished installing them today, and took Bill's advice, and used the corners that came with them. I had to use the dremel on the turn signal sockets, and the grinder on the corners, as they hit the headlight lense when installed.

All I can say is WOW!!!!!cheers So much better than stock both in form, and function. I may try to find some matching clear corners without the amber dot, but other than that. I will take the car to work tomorrow to get them aimed. And Monday my HIDs should be here, and I will have real modern safe lighting.

I thought about trying to turn the lense around to make T-84s, but the mounting points are all wrong, and the beam would aim outward on both sides.

PostSubject: UPDATE   Sun Sep 19, 2010 9:45 am

Update: These things rock. If someone is looking for an inexpensive mod, these are it. The light ahead of the car went from two spots on the road to everything ahead of the car lit up, with a defined cutoff point at the top. The sides are a bit scattered, but who cares. It is like adding fog lights to the car. My work spent $1700 on a headlight aiming tool, that proved to be useless. So I aimed them myself off a wall. I have not gotten one person flash me as of yet, and I even passed two police cruisers.
The high beams are just wow. While there is a cutoff of light at the top, the light just goes everywhere, but everywhere I would want it. Like I said, if you are looking for a form meets function mod, these are it. Not perfect, but light years better than stock.

Heeb's honest opinion is. In a world of "you get what you pay for." I am glad to see somethings can still make a person feel like they got a great deal. I am concerned about how the light seems to be heading left, even though the capsules are aimed right. But the bulbs are side by side, not on top of one other. I think the low beam should be above the high bulb, not next to it.

Your lows look FANTASTIC & the highs seem to be noticible (which is better then mine)
I feel guilty driving around with that much light Laughing
The other thing I notice is it makes all the oncoming plates look like the police "official" blue.
I'm still trying to get used to that.
