  • I don't have a write up. I would only consider LED lights in a projector. Using them in the stock contour headlight bezel could blind oncoming traffic, and yes I only retrofit the low beams. The high beams are still stock bulbs in the stock housing.: The bulbs I used were these:

      • I wanted Bilstein B4 struts,looks like that's a no go. One place ( A Bilstein us dealer ) told me maybe 8wks but they would need to call me back after calling bilstein to confirm. I called Eric at B.A.T and he said doubtful on ever getting them, he hasn't had any in stock for very long time. i'm just going with the bat struts.

          • I got my moog mounts from rock auto yesterday and my b.a.t. struts in today from fedex. Any one know who makes the struts for them ? kinda look like rebranded sachs. hope they work better than they look. Packaging left a little to be desired also.

            • Unless BAT has changed the strut I have been very happy with the ones I got years ago. I recommend getting some H&R springs to go with them.

                I was just curious who made them. I agree they have a good rep on here. just me being a little over critical.

                    I'm about to tackle the same project this month. I figured I'd use 2-part epoxy putty to repair some gouges on the edges of the rim and hit them with rattle-cans. What paint and preparations are you using?

                      I just used scotch bright & super clean to remove the top later
                      hit the wheels with multiple coats of gloss black engine paint
                      mine had pretty good curb rashes from previous owner but now
                      being black theyre hard to see
