    Looking for suggestions for headlights.

    Thought I would drop this in a seperate thread from my build thread. Am looking for suggestions for the larger 'outside' lights for my F40 LM build. I have the smaller set already and they are four inch. Am cutting the front end today for the light buckets. Have looked at 911 lights on Ebay and like the idea but keep in mind I will need the light and the mounting bucket/adjuster. The 911 light set up may be too expensive. If you have a possible donor in mind shot it too me and I'll check it out next time I go to the junk yard. Of course I will need high and low beams in one unit. Any and all ideas welcome.

    Mike the LM headlights like in the photo use a 7 inch bulb on the outside and a 3.75 inch bulb for the center. I would think you could use anything with that size bucket. Old GM and Ford products have them. A you pull it might be best.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Here is a better picture of the LM headlights and as you can see it is a very very basic setup..

    Thats funny, I looked at another version of that same model light (H6024) yesterday morning but passed on them because they were blue:

    My knowledge on lights is very limited, so it's stupid question time: Am I correct in assuming these (I just posted the link to) have a blue tinted lens to try to make the lights look like a HID light? I like these posted DeLorean80 much better. Will do some mock ups to compare sizes. Looks like the H6024 is used in the 924 944 911. It should not be hard to find a donor to obtain the adjustment buckets from, if anyone knows another donor that uses this light please let me know.

    Re: Looking for suggestions for headlights.

    Wow, ok guys don't worry about giving me other donor suggestions....it looks like almost EVERY car uses these lights: Hummer, BMW, Chevy, VW, Mazda etc, etc. So I guess my question should be: Does anyone have hands on experience with a car that uses this lights that might could recommend it as a donor for the adjustment buckets???? It would be nice to use a donor with adjustment buckets that are easy to remove and to work on.

    thanks folks,
