Here are a couple of sample pics that he has done in the past. Like I said before its quality work. What I was thinking was this:
Everybody throws in a dollar no more than 2, and we select who was helpful the most and that is their reward for bein so helpful. Plus this way everybody can see how they look. I know most are goin to laugh at this idea but it works.



2003 Tundra
Infiniti Q45 "gatling gun" projector w/ Phillips 4100k D2S bulbs.




2002 Acura RSX
BMW E39 angel eyes w/ Vistek 8000k




1999 Lexus GS300

Sorry bout the x'*, it was late and didnt check before closed out. Heres his website to take a look. www.illusion-lighting.com But if it is possible for him to do it, when he sends the headlights back all we have to do is install them. He replied back to me today and told me this:
"Can you send us some pictures of your headlamps with a ruler next to
them. I would like to physically see the dimensions of your headlamps
before giving you a definite answer and what your options are. Also
what kind of halogen bulbs does your vehicle currently use for it low
beam?"
Anybody wanna upload some digital pics of this info. If so please dont forget the years as well. Thanks in advance.

Um, no offense to this guy, but can't he just walk out to the nearest parking lot with a ruler? I mean, c'mon, it'* a _Pontiac_; they're not exactly _rare_. Am I missing something here?

I'll take some length/width dimensions tomorrow...maybe even some depth measurements.

I'll PM you and even takes pics tomorrow night, those can be emailed. At least you will have general sizes for 87-91 headlamps.

What about materials and hardware? does he supply? if it is possible for him to make them does he need us to provide the headlamps? I plan on bee-lining it to the wrecker yard to scoff them up for $50 bucks.

Lemme know what you think.

BTW, I checked the site...he built those?

Notice the coil ring around the light, that is was indicate Angel Eye. I'm looking for something like this as my low beams. My high beams...well, HID is fine, but even if it says the way it is, I have no problems.

I noticed the Tundra there, with the LED...no thanks, only looks good on the G35

If you think he can do something with these...


then I'm all for it
