In stock form, no. However, you notice the pic, how the lights are facing inwards, somewhat? Well, look at our headlights, they too are facing inwards. Well, what I [personally] would do, is park the car 20ft from a wall, and mark where the lights point [of course having them aligned at this point]. Then, fab up the new ones, and come back to that wall. Point the headlights on that wall again, and adjust them accordingly. You may also need to figure out how to keep the alignment feature on the headlights, so you can adjust them [this may make the former steps easier].

This would be more complicated then just fabbing up a box, with fogs placed in it with a few wires. If you were to do this mod, you may also want to consider making the housing extremely head resistant, so you could have some crazy bright bulbs sitting in there. And to prevent future damage if using HIDs or something.

Phoenix: You are a smart guy, I wouldn't doubt your capabilities. If done properly, this would by no means look ghetto. This is like your replacement fogs you have. Look at the end result, they flow with the car. They flow better than the stockers.. IMO. If you want something, go make it. It may take a few bucks, and a few tries.. but eventually it will turn out the way you want. If I were you, I would cruise around a few Auto-Parts stores [incl. Wal-Mart], and see what you find. Take some measurements of your headlights, and the fogs you see there. Then hit that sketch-pad, dude!

Sure, you could aim them. I'm talking about the beam pattern There'* no guarantee that the fogs will replicate the same beam pattern as stock. I forget whether fogs do a wider or narrower beam...

Aye.. beats the **** outta me. You could probably remove the housing back of the HL, then mount that in the fogs.. so basically it'* an indivdual HL, in a fog case.

It could work to just work with existing glass headlight bulbs too right? You could still get the round look or rectangular look, whichever you preferred, then all you have to do is find a housing. You could even trim one down from another vehicle, perhaps the mid-80'* thunderbirds with 4 headlights?? Looks similar anyways.

Also, phoenix... do you have a link to a write-up on your LED 3rd brakelight? I thought I saw it somewhere before, I just now got a spoiler and would like to use LED'*.

Here the page about my LEDs
http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/674760/5 this is kind of a write up but its not very detailed.

Ive been looking around for round headlights but the only ones Ive found are from old BMWs and they are too big. I was thinking of the lights out of an integra. What size are angel eyes? 2 pairs of those would be pretty sweet.
This is what I was thinking

Good eye, man. You happen to know the owner of that car? I think Phoenix may want some measurements .

Those are Bonneville Head lamps.... But they were very limited, and you would be incredibly hard pressed to find a set... I'm guessing that those may have been a very early production headlamps for the 87 model year... Most all 87'* have the single headlamp assembly... Good luck

Nope, I don't. One of my grandparents used to own one a while back. The one in the picture is an '85. You should call a few wreckers Phoenix and see if they have any of these cars sitting around, I think they would look pretty cool in the Bonneville if you could get them to fit in properly.
