    I've heard of 240sx and 1990 Chevy caviler (sp?) being used. I saw the cavilers and thats what I intend to use, I think they are closer looking to OEM.

    You're right, they weren't, but I think he got them to fit in the fiero buckets. I wish I could remember the 355 and user name, but it is on this forum. I have never had any luck with this search engine either, but it was on of the senior members on the forum here. Don? maybe. Funnywheels probably knows right of the top of his head! ;D

    Fiero upgrade lights...
    These are the Fiero lights only,you can allso upgrade to 87-88 Fiero headlight motors too,but requires everything,includeing the wireing harness,that detaches at the front firewall (motors,brackets,wireing harness and moduel,under the drivers side fender).

    Another link using the Cav' lights. I think they awesome and they are easy to come by and replace as they are GM.

    I used C5 Corvette lights and they fit the OEM size of the bucket quite well. Much work here with this one, just don't go with the Saturn lights, you may as well just leave the fiero buckets in if you are going to use those ugly things. Eric

    I'm the one that used the Nissan 240 SX headlights. They aren't rectangular light OEM Ferrari though. I went with them for the ease of mounting and better reliablility than the Fiero headlight motors. They come with a nice trim bezel and fit the opening in the hood perfectly.
    Even the longest journey begins with the first step.
