    Non pop up Headlights for 355's

    Another quesion about headlights;

    Has anyone thought of or tried to make no pop up style headlights for the 355? Could you use the small headlights you can get for the rice burners you see all the time?

    I know this will spark a lot of conversation from several about not looking authentic and all but all I am doing is asking a question to see if anyone has and how they did it....

    I measure about a 4" height of where the headlights are postioned on the 355 kit I have so it may not be enough height anyway.

    Cheers

    Don:

    I built a set install for my Mirage kit. I fabricated a box with a lip all around and attached a plastic cover over the bulb as you mentioned. I used two sets of inexpensive driving lights from Advanced Auto Parts. In addition, I changed the lights so the driving lights and the second set of lights mentioned came on with the hi beam switch, the low beam use one set without driving lights. 6 lights in all. I have photos but they were taken before digital.

    Bob:

    Do you still have the Koenig style headlights. Don is interested in them for his car.

    That is a pretty good price for them. I paid several hundred to have them fabricated in 1998.

    Do you still have the other light and the plexiglass covers?
