Anyone ever heard of putting the NSX pop-up headlights into a miata?

they've done it to the 240sx.... my friend told me it'd be a good idea to look into it... since the headlight itself might fit, then all i need to do is fabricate the headlight lid to fit in place

I think a better swap is when people install the FD lights in their bumper, looks awesome.

I'm sure NSX parts are cheap and plentiful.

well.... no offense to the moss owners... but it'd be a different look, and on top of that.... it looks better, i believe the headlights are cheap, i remember a set going for 300$ and being sold, if not correct.... sell the lids for 50$ a pop... BAM spent 100$ a headlight and now you just simply fab in the lid off your car.... but then again that's if everything fits into the miata housing =/
