that kinda looks like the Kaze Prjector headlight conversion. the kit costs over $700 and i don't think its hard to install.
what do you mean hand-turn them? You mean he has to get out of the car?? I've been looking for something like this too, actually. Was thining that I might be able to mod the turn flasher housing and just leave them down with the projectors pointing out through where the snake eyes glass would have been.McStealth R/T said:I think he just put it together himself... not a kit (may be wrong, though). Only thing is... for now, he doesn't have automatic pop-ups... you gotta hand turn 'em when it gets dark . Still looks totally kick ass.
Matt.... when are you comin' back to FL so we can hang out again??

so the law makes no other comment on the brightness or type of bulb used? That sets a precedent that would allow me to tape flashlights to my hood and call them headlights, and I gurantee I would get pulled-over for that. Its is my understanding that there are regulations regarding forward driving lights and their proximity to each other, as well as to the ground. Does anyone happen to have a good source of state statutes we could review and interperate so we can be prepared if we get pulled-over with this mod?RicYoon said:A car on the California highway or roads are allowed to have a total of 6 lights on (6 bulbs). 2 headlights, 2 fog lights, and 2 parking lights. Anything over that is a violation. thats why the fog lights shut off then you turn on the highbeam. So if your headlight has 4 bulbs and you have them on with your fog lights and parking lights. That would be a total of 8 bulbs lit... an anal cops will tell you and give you a ticket for it. I know. I had the conversion on my car.

Could you give a little more detail as to what you did?kcalvano said:Sure, I used to have this mod on my VR-4 before I did the 98 conversion. if you inspect the motor when the button is depressed, it makes a complete 360 degree revolution, 180 degrees when pressed, then another 180 degrees when pressed again(in the same direction). I modified the mechanical arms that attach the motor to the light assembly. I made it so it was variable length self adjusting, had to do some cutting and a little rigging, but it worked great while i had it.
What brand and model fogs do you have in there? Are the PIAA 1200s bright enough?matt92vr4 said:hey thats my car!! Thanks for the compliment, although I never claimed to be the inventer. I think a few people had similar ideas at the same time.
Right now I have 2 sets of foglights in there. I would not recomend this though because the light is kinda dim. A perminant fix just arrived in the mail last week. I bought 2 supra headlights that I am gonna cut up and fit in there. They are REAL headlights so they will be nice-n-bright.
I am also gonna fix the pop-up situation. I just need to get it adjusted properly. As soon as my engines and trannys stop blowing up I will have time to do the pop-up!
BTW, thanks for the compliments. Oh, I got the supra headlight for $55 each + shipping (a lot cheaper than cutting up 3s headlights!
