has anyone considered or tried getting some of the cheap projector headlights off ebay and taking the lights out (the whole socket and everything) and putting Catz or PIAA fog or bumper mount lights in?

i have seen those type aftermarket headlights on 3rd gen RX-7's and it looks bad ass.

Re: RX-7 style headlights

so the thread should be called "aftermarket RX-7 style headlights"

and actually, i think there is a set of covered projectors around... on ebay somewhere.

Re: RX-7 style headlights

Funny, is was thinking along these lines myself. I've seen where you can get Hella projectors and H1 high beams "loose" for about $55 each. But I don't own any Ebay special lamps so I'm not sure if the mounting points would line up right.

I might plunk down the $250 to get the lamps, then decide whether I need better quality light output after using them.

Now what that has to do with RX-7s...?

there is a pic of an RX-7 with these type of lights in almost every issue of Sport Compact Car, a 3rd Gen RX-7 with these type of lights.. damn i gotta get a scanner...i guess im not describing them right...
its basically a halo projector shell, with two different aftermarket driving lights in the holes..... i know someone else has seen these so help me out in describing them...

thanks

In the new issue of H.C.I. there are some rx-7's with celica headlights and that would look very badass on a foci.

What makes you think they gutted cheapo lights and put in fog lights and driving lights? If you could do it and if it looked good, it would still be illegal... even good Hella's or PIAs arent't the same beam pattern as proper headlights, it's not a great idea.

Re: RX-7 style headlights

you can't necessarily have a cheap enough housing to the point where you should trash it and replace it with something expensive... the ones on ebay now that are covered look good, i would roll those
