Ok so I was wondering what these headlights that are made to go on an Acura nsx I believe would look like on a fiero...

Here are the headlights- http://image.importtuner.co...a_nsx+headlights.jpg

Any thoughts, or pics of it already done? (or photoshop!!!)

The only NSX headlight swaps i know of are on troyboy's car and furiosusGT's (i know spelling)
unless its on a newer one iv never seen them on an NSX but the shape of the lights dosent look like it would mate well with the fiero's front end.

A few people on the forum have used the flush RX-7 FD3S headlights as they fit very well into the stock buckets and look very similar to those NSX lights. There's two build threads here on the forum, and they seem to be a good (and somewhat affordable) alternative for custom headlights.

You still retain the stock flip ups, but the lights are very low profile and have the projector style like those.

Anything will mate well with enough fiberglass.

Very affordable - around $200 WITH all lights and housings, way better price than the [very nice quality] Fiero1Fan/Synthesis/Hella system, which costs three or four times that, but is plug and play.

You don't think it would look very good? I'm tryin to imagine what it would look like, was hopin someone would have a pic of it... Was wondering what it would look like with a hood scoop like skitime's or with hood vents (like the V8-Archie warber style)

They don't fit in the stock light recesses. Fitting them would require plenty of bodywork. So they will look however your fiberglass skills end up making them look. If you look in the "We Build A Perfect Union" thread in the Construction Zone, you'll see what they will generally look like.

Those aren't the same headlights as the pic I linked though. The ones in the perfect union thread are the nsx ones that look like the rx-7 halo ones that everyone does

Ok. Well, the shape of the ones you posted would look better I think, as the inside angles out more smoothly, rather than being a sharpish angle at the rear. As long as someone who knows what they're doing with fiberglass, does the work, anyway. Anyone can slap a gallon of bondo on something.

You asked for opinions, here's mine.
Yuck...

It looks unnatural and doesn't go with the rest of the lines of the car.
In other words, it looks like it doesn't belong.

If I saw that on the street and didn't know anything about Fieros, I'd say "it looks like a Fiero with modified/out of place headlights. Silly."

Now, if you're going to do a whole body kit and create a whole new exterior, that's another thing.

Check out the photos of 88lambofiero head lights.
They look very close with two humps, not three.
