You might have room for TLs, which have 3 inch projectors. They are very damn big and you do get a bunch of light. Did I mention they are big?

I found these. The projectors would need to be retro'd of course but I think they'd look mean!

I got a new soldering gun, relays and some split loom. My schedule has been crazy but I hope to post some pics soon. I will be making Jdubya301's wiring harness from his thread:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1482552
Its a two relay harness and a bit complex but works like a charm. Its the same one I made for Nomad's lights. I'm waiting on some fuse holders I ordered from Frigid North but I can get started without them.

Not sure if you've seen this over on the SF forums, but it might be useful to you.

Thanks for the link.

Installing 01-02 headlights in my car would require I change the hood, grille, bumper, corner lights, and front quarter panels, though!

Sorry I didn't get back to you-been kinda busy. I finally got a pair of ATC fuse holders locally so I've gotten busy soldering away on the wiring harness. I will need a volunteer Bugeye owner with a stock halogen setup to test the harness and to ensure I've wired up the LEDs correctly as they are polarized.

Umm...nice barbie? Lol! Just kidding. They turned out great! I can't wait to see them on the car-did you try the harness yet?
P.S. Never, ever have barbie in the shot-that b%@ch is a shot-hog!
