i'll get some closer pics when it stops snowing. Below is 6500K HIDs in the low beams and 100W hyperwhite H3s in the blazertech fog lights. I have changed my fogs to HID also but I have no pics yet.

it actually looks like the lights sit behind the grille, and they are not flush, and the coner lights dont match up

good work though

It barely touches the hood/grill. It took about 4-5 hours to figure out how it could be done and then about 1-2 hours of fabracation per side. moslt channeling brackets and grinding/ cutting the metal that holds the headlight. If anybody else wants it done I will do it at my work for 4-6hours of shop time. shop time is 65/hour. not cheap but I only have the tools to do this at my work. If you own an air saw a die grinder and bench grinder and dremel . and have 1-2 days off . go for it. It is not impossible. I ordered the HID kits from a guy on ebay. 2 6500K kits were 529 with shipping included. I'll try to get some more pics for you guys.

So I guess you like it.

I tried the new corner lights for a 97 and they were off even more. The angle of the lights is different from left to right. so the innermost part is closer to the grill. not much differnt is spacing than my stock ones.
