Well - get a VW GTI setup

Heres a neat 90mm round "projector" setup.

Cibie has these cool 70's Mercedes VW GTI like lights but yellow
http://www.talbotco.com/e-code_lamps.htm

If yer made o money - HID
(And DOT legal)

Well - genuine VW GTI
http://www.germanautoparts.com/

If yer looking at $5 lights....

Get buckets for an old skool 6024 (thats a 7" round) headlight.
Then headlights are cheap - and DOT legal (as a 6024 is a DOT beam - doh)

The only "Aftermarket" lights that would be DOT legal as headlights would probably be "snowplow" lights. Bolt em on and go.

The advantage of the snowplow lights - they have an integrated turn signal and clearance light.
Everything ya need to convince Officer Bob yer legal.

Northern has em I think.

Those typically use a 6054 beam. Those can be swapped for "e-code" beams when yer lottery ticket hits.

Go here and click on Neolight... cheapy VW GTI lights.

If you really want to save... go look through the euro car section at your local yard. Many 70's and early 80's cars were upgraded to H4 lights. Look for the heavily fluted lens and 'H' designation on lens.

SEARCH!! yah faulker, I just asked the same question not even 3 weeks ago!! Did you even notice what I had for lights? If youd stop eatin them cheap mushrooms off that Oakey cow patties......

No really, I bought them Hella Lights, They dont have high beam, and I tried to hook up some H4 bulbls but they have different bulbs, so lately I havent found any high/low beam bulbs that fit em. But if you aim em right, you will have no problems runnin them on the street. Although if you want high beams then just get out and aim em up, then they are bright! In my opinion, it was a good choice, they are low profile, I think 5" round, and can be mounted anywhere, upside down, sideways, Im sure you can even Spoon em

Im buzzin. Its what I get for gettin off at 1pm. Ive got 5 hours on Yah

Cool

I might have a seat. Actually, I got 4.


Paul, check on BugPack Part# 3530. It's a single post mount, 7" round headlight shell. That's what I plan on using with dual beam headlights.

175 for a front end!!
Dude! I feel cheap and abused.

I guess I "used" to be a cheap whore till tonight!!
Thats too much Paul. Way too much. What are you gonna use? Just the hubs and inners??? Shit you dont want the housing. Its an 83!

What am I talkin about. I never broke any toy front, except a couple a tie rods. I guess Im a puss.
I have takin apart countless axles, for parts. never to fix my own!! I need more throttle power! My weber, header and *edit cam(i said carb @first) just dont cut it no mo. Triples dont mean shit. I just need a remote control i guess.

pinche joto!
