Has anyone ever tried to bolt just the housings up? I know there will be problems with the hood and with the fenders and corner lamps but, is there a way to affix the clear lens to 92-95 body styles?

The headlights and corner lights are a different shape. I don't think it would be possible without getting really creative. And remember, our fenders are plastic.

The lenses definitely have an impact on light output. There'* as much difference between my new left headlight and foggy old right headlight as between the silverfarts and halogens. take a look

What about ordering a pair of Euro-spec lenses from a GM Parts counter? I know a lot of Impala guys ordered Euro-spec lenses for their cars and the difference is HUGE.

That is because our headlight design (DOT) is HORRIBLE....the Euro spec is MUCH better.

Anyone have a parts guy they know well that could get us Euro-spec lense part #*?

I would be interested if they will work, or can get something to work. I absolutly hate my POS lenses...Plus they're chipped to all hell anyways....So may as well replace them.
