Default lets talk about headlights.

so the barn doors grew on me for a while, i do like them, and i think they would look better if i had the cash for the eastbear surrounds. then i was looking at the sleepy eye kits, and to tell the truth, im not a big fan. after that, i fell in love with the aac flush mount kit. but now, thats fading away. especially the lexan covers, they dont look right either. SO. with that being said, im a dreamer of sorts, with all the wrong tools. i took a popup out to see what there is to work with. with so card board i mocked up a "flush mount" with a 4x6 light. and... i like it. i think if i had any fabrication skills, i might be able to pull this off. thoughts?

Those eastbear surrounds are junk.

I have the AAC lights, but I plan on running them without the covers.

I've had about....4 different light setups over the years and the AAC's are my favorites so far. I like the barn doors if they are kept low pro with the Moss kit or a custom rectangle setup, but the stock bug eyes are just too much.

e-code's with 100W bulbs, and be done with it. I decided for the sake of lighting and cost I could love with the barn doors. Got the e-codes and some 85W Hella bulbs and have been more than pleased since. More light than any other car I have ever driven.
