Default New project before turbo: Hella Optilux 2500

just ordered 2 sets of Hella Optilux 2500 (4 lamps total)
will try to make my own brackets for those suckers. probably will make it bottom mounted and keep existing brackets that come with lights to make it easier...
also that should remove somewhere around 20lbs from nose of my car (motors, etc)
