. Edit- this is an ongoing development and sales thread.
. For the most current information you should read the entire thread.
. The newest stuff is at the the end.
. So, if your time is limited, read the book backwards.

Will these be plug and play? I like the look and the price seems reasonable.

I make and sell the buckets.
You will still need to purchase the modules as well.
I am happy to install the Hella units and adjusters and do so gratis.
You will have to modify your harness.
I have all the connectors should you wish to hard splice them direct.
I also have several complete harness options

How about a few pictures of the buckets before being put in the car showing the construction.?

Have a good source for the Hella lights?

This is version #14



I cannot post any pics right now of version #15

Off the top of my head, design features of interest are:
The integrated lower wind sill.
Curved upper edge of side shield has clean appearance when bucket is open.
Two lift struts are in line with wear guides on underside of doors.

This form of plastic construction is very burly.
Throw this on the ground and it will bounce.
(remember to remove modules 1st)

I buy my Hella modules from:
Susquehanna Motorsports in PA.
http://www.rallylights.com/...dlamp%20Modules.aspx
You can drop ship parts to me or buy them from me at same price.

Now that's funny right there.

I'm looking forward to seeing #15. I posted in the other thread about these light buckets as well.

Wanted to thank you for taking the time to make yourself familiar with the forum and continuing to develop this product and offer it to us here on the forum.

I like them!
Wish they sat lower though; so basically all you would see is the lights, with VERY little of the black housing above/below the lights... If version 15 is as I just described, then count me in

How sturdy are the seams on those buckets? any chance they would seperate?

Good eye,

I actually changed the way that seam goes together.
You are looking at the bucket that went into my car a year ago.
This old design has held up just fine.
With the new joint, I am confident the base material will fail before the bond does.

I"ll post newer photos after I build my current orders.
We do some beam comparisons

By the way, did I mention I like trades.

I am building an autocross / hillclimb car.

Bodywork and trim is not important.
I need suspension; bushings, sway bars, coil-overs?
Cage, belts, seat
Brakesssss!

Hopefully a 4.9 swap this winter
I have good shoes

I'd hate to turn this thread into a swap meet
PM me for potential trades

Point of order
Is it acceptable to bump your own thread?

About trades, I have bodywork real estate for sale.
I am the title and I have a primary sponsor.

Bumping your old thread is perfectly acceptable, but I think it's an unwritten rule to do it no more than once a day.

So there's a free bump for you.

Looks like you could trim down those 6060 buckets a bit for a better look i would think give it a lower profile but what do i know. no matter what they look great and will def have to order some after the holidays.

The 6060 is pretty darn low.
The rear clearance of the module is not something we should risk.
I am in sunny California for Thanksgiving.
When I return to Oregon in a week, I'll wash the car and take some glamor shots.

I am back and upon my return there was a care package from 3m.
Carbon Fiber Architectural Film.
If I am happy with the result, I will offer it as a finish.

PS for those of you that I am building assemblies, I will not ship till we have spoken.

I may be interested in a set of the 6060s. Is there instructions somewhere on wiring these in?

Ill probably get mine without the Di Noc though.

There are many threads archived on this forum that go into detail how do control illumination.
I work with electricity by trade, so I haven''t needed to search there.

There are some fundamental things to take into account when doing this upgrade.

1) separate high and low beam modules allow you to run all lights simultaneously on high.
This is a huge advantage over dual-beam reflector headlamp systems.
The stock Fiero is not designed to do this and must be modified to accommodate the additional current flow.
In particular the wiring to and from the headlight switch supplying the dimmer switch and those switches themselves will burn up eventually if you run double the designed current through them.

2) Relays can solve this by using the stock wiring as a signal circuit that will trigger them.
The amperage required to do this is very low. The old wiring and switches in your dash are not going to smoke.

3) Power can be fed directly from the battery to the relays.
A fuse block needs to be added as close to the battery as possible for short circuit protection.

4) Run independent feeds from the battery and fuse block to high and low relays.
This way, if you blow a fuse, you will not be hurtling down the expressway in the dark.

5) A diode jumper between the high and low "signal" wires will keep the low beams on, even when you bright up.
There is a way to do this in your dash, but I would rather not officially suggest this modification.

6) High quality components are cheaper in the long run than using junk.
Up-sizing wire size is a good thing, but you can go overboard.

PFF is an invaluable resource for anything you ever want or need to know about Fieros.
I know there will be a schematic describing all this on a thread.

I might just stand to be corrected.
I have been looking in the archives for a thread with a schematic and an explanation on construction of a quad headlamp relay harness.
I may have wrongly assumed it exists.
Probably, my search keywords lack imagination.

It is not complicated.
I"ll post something soon

Wow! Thanks for doing these. I'm glad to see competition to the buckets Fiero1Fan is selling.

Being plastic, your buckets won't wear on the headlight doors as much as the metal construction. It's also closer to OEM.

I'm glad you brought that up.
If you look at a stock bucket there are two high points that ride on the wear pads on the underside of the door.
My design has integrated "lifting arms" that are in line with the pads.
These arms have "rolling contact" compared to the stock, single "high point".
Ideally, this should perform reliably way longer than stock.
