Convert 00-02 headlights to 95-99
Friday, December 02, 2005 1:39 PM
well, i've decided i don't like the look of my 02 headlights on with my "unmodified" import fighter front. What i wanna do is swap in some 95-99 black projectors and corners. What do i need to do this? Does anyone have part numbers for the stuff i would need? Please let me know.

Thanks

Search around here for a minute and you should find what your looking for but basicly your looking at

headlights (duh)
corners
headlight wireing
corner brackets

but like i said look around here and you'll find it.

i want projectors....no projectors for 00-02 without custom making them. Also, i haven't seen a perfect job with anyone trimming the bumper...some look good, but i haven't seen any perfect ones....

all fenders are the same, all you need is the corner bracket

i'd just trim the bumper. yea you'd have to get custom made projectors but they'll look better then the 95-99 ones.

here's a pic of a guy by me that put 00-02 lights on his 96 drag cavi.

I still have yet to see this done right so that it fits properly. This picture does a very good job of illustrating the problems. The bumper needs to be trimmed down about an inch for the entire length of the headlight. For some reason, most guys just trim near the corner lens.

Personally, I'd go with the 95-99 conversion. The bracket change for the corners is fairly simple. I happen to like the older ones better myself. The 00+ are just too tall for my liking.
