So, the Bugeye was never designed for the Spec C oil radiator.
As a result, to route the oil conduits, you have to cut into the headlight bracket, to make room for them.

I'm now switching to JDM HID. I'm hoping that by this time (late 2002), they were starting to have thoughts and doubts that an oil conduit will...one day..pass by and these brackets have room for the conduits.

If not, I will have to make room.

Of course, the S202 did have steel braided oil hoses. But odds that someone has an actual photo of the OEM routing of those hoses and how they cleared behind the headlight are small.

Actually, since the S202 did have the HID, this would seem to indicate that they would have had to make room for the hoses in all the HID lights, otherwise you'd have S202-only headlights..
Then again, maybe those hoses take a different route.
