    Hey guys im thinking about taking the flip lights out of the Trueno for now. Anyone got any pics of fixed light conversions on Truenos or know of any kits?

    Im trying to make up my mind.

    Thanks!

    The best one I saw was on Ken Maeda's Upgarage car. He has used the top of a headlight or an aftermarket peice and then just fibreglassed it onto the bonnet. Then made some brackets to mount a small light just bellow.

    I think I have a picture, I'll try and find it for you Beau Beau.

    EDIT: Found 1 pic, you can sorta see.

    thanks heaps guys ive got a idea im gonna try.

    basically remove the eyelid and everything else just leaving the lid. Replace the eyelid with some back mesh (sounds woggish but there is a type i have use for something else and until you get close you wouldnt know) and running some small rectangle lights behind it. So basically it never looks any different from stock.

    See how i go i guess!

    Problem with that light is that it's too small, and won't be able to see at night properly. Unless you've got some super HID even then, that one seems too small.

    Still useless, again depending what lights you get, essentially it will be 2 spots, instead of a proper dispersion of light from a proper lense.

    could you not just put a normal levin bonnet in? then you wouldnt need to weld in the plates to fill the holes from the pop up lights.

    i reckon i've seen s13 lights put in... they kinda sat back a bit though
