      If you had a choice for headlights for your Fiero (s) which one would you pick? I'll start with some examples:

1. Stock or slightly modified?
2. NSX?
3. Celica,
4. Sunfire?
5. Corvette 2005
6. other(s) Pipe dreams?

Blah, blah, blah, I know I covered this subject before with the Celica headlamps, but thats old news now since we know it can be done. And thanks to all who helped photo-shop'd it and gave comments regarding it (positve or negitive).

      I saw the Celica headlight thread and it was pretty cool, but I looking at a Murano the other day and I believe they are sort of the same shape, just a little different style I think. They look pretty cool.

Isn't that the SUV? If so, I'd looked at those too...hmmmmmmmm? I also been looking at the Acura 2004 sedan ones too. But I think the slant needed isn't there?


FieroJuice (fierojuice@gmail.com) MSG #4, 06-30-2004 09:12 PM
      Off topic, I would pick which sig pic to go with and use just 1, not 2 of them.

On topic, I would stay with stock style headlights, maybe slim pop-ups though.

Rickady88GT (rjkmfam@sbcglobal.net) MSG #5, 07-01-2004 12:37 AM
      I like the C4 Corvette roll up headlites. First choice.

Second choice, drop door slim lines.




wpgfiero (cjsvl@shaw.ca) MSG #6, 07-01-2004 12:45 AM
      I LOVE the headlights from a S15 Nissan Silvia, i'm just not sure how hard it would be to make them work with Fiero lines.

Another one I've thought about is the headlights from Opel GT's, they look like pop-ups, but they kinda barrell-roll I guess to open and then they're big round bulbs. Kinda hard to explain.

      i think the C6 vette lights are cool, same with the acura TL

SandstormGT (davidsndy@earthlink.net) MSG #8, 07-01-2004 01:54 AM

      Hey , can't help you with the headlight issue ...since I am having the same problem trying to figure out which ones I like !!
But I sure would like to see some close-ups of your side scoops !! Are those from the Fiero warehouse ?
Beautiful car...hope I will get a chance to see it in person someday !!!

Are those similar to the Firebirds duel headlamps? Anyway I'm tring to get away from the "stock" flip-up bucket type . Something that would look "new" as if GM was still producing the Fiero.

Mr. Pat (patrickspratt@live.com) MSG #17, 07-01-2004 05:00 PM
      Flip down would be cool. Or 300zx lights. I love lights that pop out of nowhere though. Its a trip.

Yeah, the Nissan SUV... but I got a second look at them today and it seems that they gradualy slope and then come to a steep drop off thats probably too much for the fiero.

Somebody else mentioned the Acura TL... I second that, they look nice.

      I'm going to be doing a set of Honda Accord projectors. I was going to do the 300ZX, but it looked like I would have to cut too much to make them fit right.

roys88fiero (musclemachinegt@aol.com) MSG #21, 07-01-2004 06:25 PM
      i would do the Rare87gt headlight mod.......but thats just me.



Francis T (rspiderii@aol.com) MSG #22, 07-01-2004 09:14 PM
      I would do the best a-best-both-worlds setup. I don't know which he used, but anyway, my son made housings and put small rectangular lights on his MR2 (he sells the setup at trueleo.com) they look good but I like the clean hidden look. Now if you remove your big lights and modify the headlight assemble to only come up a few inches and put two of those small headlights on each side, I think it would look really cool. Another one of those 'someday I'll have to try do that' things. I hope you can picture what I said. After we get the hi-flo manfolds rolling out the door, maybe I try that mod? Let me know what you thing about it.

Blacktree (m.blacktree@gmail.com) MSG #23, 07-01-2004 09:23 PM
      Call me strange, but I'd like to see the stock headlights recessed with molded plexi covers, ala GT40. Either that, or something similar to this...

... with 4th-gen Camaro lights.

Fiero5 MSG #24, 07-01-2004 09:31 PM
      Norms flush mounts are pretty sweet plus they require no modification I beleive.
I know however that you are looking to do something a bit more unique and exotic so I would try and use something very hard for others to obtain and copy like maybe this:

doublec4 (doublec4@hotmail.com) MSG #32, 07-07-2004 09:47 PM
      I always liked the look when people extended the hood over the headlights to give the angry look:

These are the 300ZX lights on lil devils car:

The 350Z lights (modified to curve to body):

Then I took the liberty of ricing his car out with a front bumper from the 300 and using the different head lights:

ENJOY



jscott1 MSG #33, 07-07-2004 09:52 PM
      I think the 300Z lights look a bit dated themselves. I vote for the sunbird lights or the 350Z without all the extra rice accessories.

      As nice as those photoshops look the 300zx lights are out of size from reality... how do I know? photoshops like that made me buy a set of those lights and try to fit them on my fiero... they are about 15"s wide if i remember right.

this is more their true size


these lights have been passed onto shoprat...

Too bad they won't sell those headlights, beside I think it be less than 24"?


SandstormGT (davidsndy@earthlink.net) MSG #40, 07-19-2004 08:33 PM
      These are still my favorite out of everything, if someone could make a hood/headlight setup like this, people would flock, it is very intimidating....BTW these are Fold-Down Headlights( ie: the flat grey piece in front of the headlamp pops up and completely covers it as if there is only a hood.


zMacK (zmackk@gmail.com) MSG #41, 07-19-2004 08:44 PM
      I like how sunfires lights look. They would be hard to get looking right in a fiero.
I think it could be done so they look great.

plus they are still pontiac lights.

Byw, I like these Attack headlights. But part of the problem is not having access to them like at a car dealer's lot or something. The Celica lights I could go and see them and take measuremnts w/no problem.

I am looking at buying a project fiero right now, have one here locally, and i will have plenty of time to work on it, if all works out ill be doin that!!

Francis T (rspiderii@aol.com) MSG #57, 07-30-2004 08:40 PM
      5 - other: I'd modify the stock lids/assemblies to use 2 mini lights per side and have the lid only come up like 2" or whatever is needed for the lites function good. With that setup, you still retain the aerodynamicaly clean look with the lights off and only change it a little with them on. I plan on doing it to my GT when I finesh a few other mods first. No, I haven't figured out the best way to do it yet, but it can't be all that hard. Yeah, most people would rather disturb the lines with some other setup, but I don't my car to look yet another rice burner from the front. You have a great looking car, I'm sure you'll settle on the right combo.

I agree. The original headlights that are offered don't flow with the front fascia of that kit. Changing the lights and maybe some of the various lines would, IMO do the trick.

With the (one) main center vent, why not modify it so that it is similar to that of the Enzo? The side maker lights need to be changed too. This is what make a custom piece fit the customers style. Changing it or tweeking it allows for the bar to be raised instead of just bolting it on. The weight saving also hepls too, hehehe.

I don’t know that there is anything that could make your car better. It is perfect as it is. The only thing that I could think of that could make it any better is a color GPS with a moving map if you don't already have one.

Nice, and this coming from someone who was recently instantly and deservingly banned, who then some how allowed back in under your new ID went right off and posted more insulting stuff that almost got you banned in record time again. Then you whined later about how you couldn't edit any of it back out in time (like any of us believed that one) before it got the thread locked (still time in this one) and now your whining again in your Formula for sale thread in the mall that anyone who posts anything negative or contrary to what you (or is it Shaun) says is a troll.

I like stock, though.

Personally, I care about function first and style second... so, flush mounted headlights would be high on my list - I think it would look cool with a single oval (like the shape of oval exhaust tailpipes) headlight under a flush lens on each side. I could be wrong... someone wanna photoshop it?

      After looking at various head light options, for me it comes down to only two:

NSX's and the 2005 Corvette. Now I have to figure out if they can fit?

come now - surely you know you can MAKE anything fit -
just a matter of how easily, and if it'll look right


madcurl (madcurl@fiero-performance.com) MSG #77, 08-12-2004 06:16 PM
      Easy huh? I'll have to sneek over to GM and lay down a quick paper copy w/o someone calling the cops. The parts department don't have any 2005 headlamps yet.

Will it look good? Who knows? I'll draw it out first and then Pipe dream it some more, hehehehe.


Question: Could somene photo shop the 2005 Corvette lights onto a Fiero?

      The K-1 Attack is anything but a POS, the attack is an all out a$$ kicker.

I beleave the only parts from the Accord used in the Attack are the engine and trans, HVAC, Etc. The stock F22 (150hp)?? will blast the quarter mile in around 13.5 seconds. I plan on building a (350hp@8,000rpm) turbocharged K-20 6-speed. This should put me in the 10's in this 1900lb car.

There are very few in the US, but believe me, this car is more than a match for any Fiero.... Unless it's raining

      I started to build those lights for my fiero a while ago... then I bought a finale kit and I scrapped the idea (although I'm trying to work it into the finale body lines now).
I used HID projectors that I bought from Eric (RacingMan) for a very fair price.

Here's some pictures:

I took some crude measurements and I think I have enough room? It only takes 2 wks for the light to arrive. However, the car is a Archie's being chop'd. I want to get started on this before January 2005. It shouldn't be that hard comparred to the Celica lights.

Could someone please photoshop this pic onto a Fiero? I have a pic of the Redux front but the wrong side...duh!!!!!

or on this car.

Low-pro has been done, don't know about ovals though. The closest thing I've seen would be very bright fog lights or "driving" lights. Probably wouldn't be DOT-approved and probably wouldn't work worth a crap. Like these

Try searching motorcycle headlights to find a *true* headlight that's oval like that

I've had them since 2000 and where my first choice for #11 but, I never got around to using them until Norm's Front Flipper (NFF) come along. I have some old pics of me testing the fitment. Why now? The NFF doesn't have hood lines allowing for the Firebird vent to go outward. Plus, the Corvette headlamps upper part flows outward like an eyebrows.

The nice thing about them is: The vents have multi-usage. The inner vent were used on the redux and on #15. I originally used them on #11 but, I made the vent a little too small. Oh well, I'm still learning, hehe.

Here are the (inserts) using the Firebird vents

      Modify your photoshop to use the turn/driving lights from the 1999/2002 Trans Am and I think it will look better. The huge round bug eye driving lights don't do the lines justice. Just my thought.

Forgot the bug eyes are still there...and I even have a Trans Am.... But the corner signal/daylight driving lights are still cool....LOL

No need. The front turn signals are located inside the Corvette headlamp.

      The one obvious difference is the Fiero Windshield is shorter and flatter. The one thing I hope to change on the chop t-top is to go with a windshield that bubbles out more and shortens the hood. That gives the whole front end a more aggressive look to me.

Kind of like this:

      This thread is "Surreal.". Although the rear is photoshop'd we know it's been done and that Norm is working on Corvette lamps. The last time this happened was with the Redux when Kameokid photoshoped it and the finished product was the same as the photoshop.

Corvette lamps: Check

Corvette side markers: Check

I can't wait for Archie's talent for the rear clip. But that's another thread, hehe.

Thanks FieroWannabe for doing the photoshop the way I invisioned. Although I like yours too Fourtpoint9....both styles, no doubt look very good and I would love to have both. Just like the Redux, those who perform the photoshop share "in" the over-all creation and enjoyment. The idea is to learn from one style and then transfer those ideas onto another pipe dream. Besides, who wants the same style throughout, right?

You guys, Fill free to add your input in re-arranging various parts. IMO...."Tweekness is my weakness."


Edit: Oh yeah, could someone (photoshop) and raise the rear wing? Please, add your comments if you like. This modificatio is opened for debate, but no flames.

Thanks.

Latest photoshop. Hmm....could you elongate the deck lid vents like on #15? They look "blunted" at the distal ends. A little wider vents and reduce part of the sail windows outward just alittle? The special person is bringing the sail windows inward by 2-3" as we speak.

The Enzo headlamps cost 5g's. I Don't know what the cost would be for the lambroghini's? 3g's? The Corvettes headlamp will have to do, hehe.

It would be better to use Norms newer style headlamps and then use a Lexan cover and cut it as the shape of the real ones.

      On my list of yet to do items for my GT are custom head lights that still disapear only I'm going to make shorter actuator arms so the lights only come up maybe half as much and use small rectangle dual lamps on each side. That will give me much more light and still look cool. Like the Lotus Esprie, the front of the Fiero is, in my opion, sort of timeless and like to keep that look. And I don't think my GT40 extrator scoop took away from it either. As for when, we've been busy making intakes for people and designing our new headers, so the lights will probably have to wait until spring.

I think soem 550/575 headlights would look good they have a shape that can easily blend in a Fieros, they are pricey new, but used some deals could pop up.

      A Nice alternative if you want pay the $1200 bucks and you'll still need the other matching lamp.

the 550 lights would be sick. but pricey.

the 360 lights do cost too much, and they would fit wierd. The fenders on the 360 have way too much curve in them.

      Hello all,

I've been researching the headlight change. I personally like to keep the Fiero's body look with min modifications but don't like the pop-ups (actually Yellow Stones are the nicest pop-up, but seems like I'll wait forever for his reply on what Hella model/part#). One of the lights I like are the '96 to '00 Fiat 16v & 20v. Which I have been able to find in the UK for about $340 + 17% tax each. The only problem with the UK dirving lights point to there side walk (kurb). I'm trying to locates these from some other country in Europa. I also like the '93 to '97 Mazda RX-7 DUAL HALO HEAD LIGHTs, but not the carbon fiber look.

Those are nice too and they fit the conture of the Fiero. Looks like they may be a bit pricey? Actually they look similar to the NSX headlamps.

      Personally I think they would be a better fit then the NSX headlights due to it wouldn't require to mod the bumper (assumption) and as you mention due to the Fiero contour. They do look similar. The NSX was my first choice but doing some research on an old Fiat Uno w/ Hormann tuning/body I ran into the Coupe 20v. They seem to be the perfect light for the Fiero in my opinion. Yes they are some what pricey in the UK (what isn't). I need to find a Fiat parts dealer in Italy and see what they are going for. This is one of the mods I've been researching besides using '04+ Hyundai Tiburon side view mirrors to replace the stock Fiero ones. But all this has to be done on paper and photo software to see end results.

The size of the Fiat 20v head lights are about...

      Hmm. This thread hasen't been whip'd on lately.

A talk with Norm;

Norm is about to start on the side vents and side marker lamps on the front Corvette flipper. He'll have additional pics with-in a week. Thanks to Fierowannabe and others this "mod" is coming along just fine IMO. As for the prodution date, Norm told me 2-months before he starts production. Norm will use the current Corvette flipper as a "mold" for production.

As for cutting into the side front bumper he told me, "yes." I'm guessing because of the size of the Corvette lamps being very deep and elongated?

No pics. Maybe next week? As-to "when"? All Norm needs to do is, mount the front flipper, cutting, and wiring...that's it. Before he mounts the front flipper, he's going to make a mold from the corvette headlamp buckets.

      Two feet (24") for front headlamps in CA (I think). The CHP usually pull over youngsteers for quick harassment checks at various car shows. The CHP or local police deptments drum up sums of money by going through a list, and one of them is headlamps. On the other hand, your fog lamps can be lower but, I don't know "how much lower" or just how many?

Also I really like not having the big wind flaps sticking up in my field of vison.

Now if they had only sent me 2 good xfomers Id really be happy, have both high beams but only one low beam. Thats what i get for buying something new and not going the junk yard route.... hey wait a min... isent that backwards? They were from best4shop.com/HD Still trying to get a response from them.

Too lazy to go back and see if anyone posted this one yet, but i was walking to my car the other day and parked next to me was an Infinnity G35.



The headlamps looked really good and got me wondering, would they fit in a fiero ?? The slope is not as extreme as it appears in the picture which made me wonder if they might work.



They remind me somewhat of the celica lamps, but a bit different.



Thoughts ?

New:
Celica: $420 (for two)
C6: $780-ish (per side)
NSX: $1k and some change (per side)
Lamborghini G $5k (both)

Used:

Celica: $60-100 (per side) Ebay prices vary and junk yard searches maybe less than $30 per side?
C6: $300-400 per side( check Corvette sites). More production thus greater chance of wrecks.
NSX: Non-available at junk yards or Ebay (so far and maybe never?) The car is out of production so most will be swoop-up at junk yards. If you find one side...good luck.

Due to the size of those headlight it would over power the look of the car and look like Mitsu.

      Due to Troboy NSX headlamp adventures, all of the major 3 listed on the first page have been performed. All-n-all I like all three headlamps. As for the Mit headlamps 98-99 I think it wouldn't flow with the stock front end unless major rework performed but in that case, you'd might as well sport the Finalie's front end, right? The Mit 2000-04 has too much of a drop-off and wouldn't work on a Fiero IMO. We'll need to hold-off until more production cars come out with nice headlamps and then raid the junk yards, hehe.

Are you using a cover lens like FierouseGt is using? Otherwise, the headlamps by themselves may appear like those "Gator headlamps"?

      The way I want to install them is as far back towards the rear of the stock opening so they don't stick up so far,
then I have an idea of what I want, but I will have to do a drawing/sketch to show what I mean to do.
I will be taking pics of the install process and will post them here. As this is my first actual fabricating project,
it will be interesting to see how it turns out....

Oh, I get it...you want something like what is seen on older Integra cars. A funneling look but in the bucket headlamp area. That may work.

Not to be rude, but the "bling factor" of some other headlamps is just too much for me.

Shoot the company an email, you never know..

Personally I like flip up headlights (low profile even more). Mostly because it's a dying breed. most cars don't have them anymore. European legislation didn't help.

Maybe do something cool making headlights flip up differently. Or of you want flush, something similar to Jaguar XJ-220 headlights.

Those Tesla Roadster HL might not work due to the curvature of the hood. What does the European legislation have to do with the American cars not having popup?! Look at the headlight technology over the years... lights have gotten smaller and brighter.

      Not only do you need to take pics of the front, but also side profile pics. If the headlamps are too steep they won't work with the Fiero's nose. You'll need to find a pair of headlamps that are flat or with lesser steepness. The Celica and NSX fits the Fiero nose.

Otherwise you'll need a different front clip. That was case regarding the Corvette headlamps.

Nice headlamp, but the Pagani Zonda headlamps won't work due to the pitch and angle of the lamps (you'd need a Norm's flipper). Secondly the Zonda isn't available in the USA (legally), and thirdly (most important) the Zonda's would be very, very expensive....most likely more than Lamborghini or Ferrari headlamps making them 100% impractical.

If you want headlights that pop out of nowhere, and you want something totally unique that's 'outside the box', then you should employ some low profile headlights, but have the entire front edge of the hood raise up when they come on. It sounds retarded, but the way I have it envisioned in my mind, it could be pretty cool. You'd only need it to pop up about an inch, maybe inch and half, then you could use an LED headlight system like the R8. I always liked the old muscle cars where the headlights just appeared from the grill (can't think of the car it was on...). Anyway, that's my 2 cents...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_Coupé

I was looking into those a while back. Only found Right side driver ones (ebay UK). I was told that you need to remove/relocate a metal plate inside the headlight for left hand driver. Tried C5 headlight which didn't workout then used the after market NSX GT-One that worked out great.

More info and dimensions of the Fiat Coupé headlight here.

Dave, I did pitch the idea to JimmyS (FieroFiberglass) several months ago but he didn't think there would be any interest in these headlight and that the hood would have to be modified. I explained that these are different then the OEM NSX headlights. As you can see in the pictures it has a flat area on the SIDE and REAR that is not being used can can be modified as direct replacement for the pop-ups.

Again don't know if there would be any interest. Just a shell with that modern sporty shape that would fit in the pop-up HL area and just add any JDM lamp or whatever.

That is awesome how you can separate the headlight assembly. It would be nice to make copies of the whole assembly and sell it at an affordable price. I know if the price is right I would be in line for a set. It will give me an excuse to buy the fiberglass bumper.

Jimmy make me a set, please!

Aside from the real NSX OEM headlamps, IMO these are far better looking than the Camero style lamps. Like anything that's unique, you need to modify the hood and bumper.

Yea not to mention be pretty hard to fourm into that shape. I think its a great idea though. I went with a set of Kris munsons headlights cuz I like the look of the lights being recessed into the hood. next comes the HID's for them. I have no dought JimmyS could get these together if there was a demand for them. As i recall aside from the fiero whearhouse he is the only one semi mass producing quality aftermarket fiberglass upgrades. Archie has some beautifuly made products to but his wide bodys looke a little more involved.

I am currently workin on it I have the hinges figured out so far and have the gas struts figured out but I am still workin on the latch and how I will transition it to the front of the door, if u look at all the 350 z's and this car in this thread they use a pretty weak system and gut their doors for weight reduction plus if you look at them in detail the hinge is the only thing holding the front of door in while its down and latches via the original striker I plan on using a system more like the tailgate latch system of a pickup truck to hold the front of the door into position, after the chop is done on my car I will then be starting working this out more also if you are going to try it I have also figired out the front of the door will have to be cut out 2 inches wide and then filled in with a 2 inch wide piece of flat stock 3/8 or 1/4 thick welded in to stiffen it up and to give the gas strut a solid place to push off on also the triangle piece in front of the window glass will be made of flat stock and have the hinge built into it, this will swing the door out up and away putting the hinge their. When I get around to doing it I will do a build thread.

As pontiackid suggested, that is indeed a Fiero. It's a one-off built entirely for show though, afaik, and is located in Canada.

Unlike those of stock 3rd-generation Corvettes (1968-1982) and all stock Fieros, which "pop up," I'd describe those of 4th-generation Corvettes (1984-1996), as headlights which "flip up" rather than pop up.

I imagine there are others, but those 4th-generation Corvette headlamps just happened to be the first to pop up flip up into my head.

There were the 1st gen Camaros, and I think the 70-era Charger, which had doors that flipped open to let the headlights be visible.

      Personally I like the stock design with just a better bulb system, I run the Diamond Cut reverse lite H4 conversion in my 88GT and love it. However here is another members choice in systems. The buckets only move up slightly over 1/2 way and he has the option of running 2 or 4 bulbs plus the lower lights are a triple system with 3 bulbs in each.

I am thinking they are purposely running it a season behind because the cars were to debut this year at SEMA. They keep promising more of the vettes each week, but so far have showed only small snippets. A bit frustrating.

      This is all a matter of personal taste.
You have to ask yourself why you are modifying your lights.
Performance or styling?
Hidden headlights are a cornerstone of the stock Fiero look.
Flush mounted headlights are a modern thing.
If you are ready to cut on your car and install them,
You have tons more performance lighting options.

me, I like pop-ups


What makes the Hella 90mm low beam so superior to stock is it's projector optics.
I am using 60mm Hella modules.
The lens is actually larger than the 90mm.
The fundamental limitation of pop-ups is that are very few projectors that will fit.

You can see the lettering on the plastic in the above photo.

One cool thing about this fixture is that you can legally run a new type of bulb,

      hairballrm,
How does HIR bulb lighting compare to H4 halogen and HID "xenon"?
Also can the 60mm kit be made to have the headlight doors even lower? I noticed that there is some space between the top of the lens and the bottom of the headlight door. i really want he forward edge of the door to be no higher than the rear. Best would be with the rear edge no higher than the hood edge.

Anybody know of legal lights that could accomplish that last sentence?


hairballrm (rmeyner@projectorretrofit.com) MSG #532, 07-26-2011 02:25 AM
      Lumen is a unit of measuring the light output, brightness, of a source.
Traditional low-beam halogen headlight produces 1000 – 1200 lumens, while HID outfitted headlight outputs around 3200 lumens.
A quality H9 or 9005 will put out 1500 to 1700 lumins
The Toshiba HIR (Halogen Infrared) puts out 2700 and the Philips HIR 3000.

The fundamental difference between Halogen and and HID is the shape of the light source.
The filament vs the arc.
Someone correct me if I am wrong,
I know of no DOT legal HID reflector headlight.
Projector fixtures are able to contain the stray light that HID capsules produce.

The cool thing about HID is the color output choices.
also that quality bulbs will last FOREVER (okay, maybe just a really long time)

The height of my buckets are required for clearance of the back of the modules.
The next cool thing to do would be to modify the doors and front edge of the opening.

That's exactly why you get people who have put HID's in Halogen reflector housings, and blind everyone from stray light glare... and why I cannot think of a single OEM car that puts HIDs in without projectors.

Not photoshop'd, but is an actual Fiero. The owner is in CA. You might want to contact him for I believe he might want to sell the entire car or parts of it.

Not a good fit, what ever headlights you go with you should use an original factory setup and not a knock off. This way they are tested and proven plus you will always have replacement parts.

I'm not much for the Lambo doors. It's been done to too many cars, but these vertical doors would look sweet on the Fiero. Love the way they lift up. That's Ideal.

More than likely the kit sells for a mint, but you'll get plenty of props if you get them. However, if your on the street getting out while car are passing by or in the garage in a tight space this kit isn't the best one to have. As the video demonstrated there doesn't seem to be a "sweet" spot when opening the doors. If that is the case you'll find yourself holding the door in certain situations when it isn't wise to open up all the way. As with the VDI original kit at least the door space when fully opened is minimal compared to the newer style.

      It's been a while since I've posted anything, but here are a the C6 headlamps. Trends perfecting the look I wanted. There was some rough areas that needed attention. I wasn't pleased with the way it looked so I waited until it meets my expectations.







The other shop in town was taking their sweet heart time and I'm not the kind of person who likes people wasting my time. They did get part of the car's hood vent going, but Trends was the people that can complete the task at hand.

      I'm thinking of something similar to this for my front end.



Cobalt headlights mounted lower on front end. Fenders and front facia molded together. Hood with viper style vents.
