Aftermarket lighting
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:49:36 PM »
Hey folks, sorry to be AFK.

I found the solution to the headlights. If you want modern composite 4x6 headlights then here ya go.

Read the PDF. Each light is independently adjustable. ($600+ likely) however it is led, modern and might give some of you something to shoot for.

I am also working on custom tail lights using over the counter parts and either molding my own lenses or vacuum forming lexan lenses (depends on cost)

I will be posting possible designs if requested.

Ingenuity through stupidity, Do something stupid and through Ingenuity you will find a way out of it.

1981 AMC Eagle (Currently in need of a bellhousing OR the project to iron it's self out)

You'd be better off just swapping in LED bulbs like the ZEVOs, then switch to an electronic flasher.
