Well i know this is gonna be kinda pointless without pics but i'll update anyway.
I've got the lights in. But there far from being done.
So far i had to:
Cut the crap out of the fenders, behind where the corner lights went.
Make mounts for the lights
Take the deep housing off the lights and screw the bulb housing to the lense cover on the top and bottom out of sight
I had to cut the crap out of my hood. This was the hardest part so far. I couldn't close my hood for like a week.
I cut the border of the grill on either side. (the black outside)
I got all the bulbs to work no problem

It looks bad a$$ from the front but there is sill alot of work to be done where the corner lights use to be. I'm also gonna weld some sheet metal the make the hood about a 1/2 inch longer so it will cover the tops of the lights at the corner of the hood.
I'm still trying to work out what i'm gonna do for the fenders but i'm sure it will involve lots of fiberglass/bondo.
Hope fully i can steal someones digicam soon.

I can't wait to see to this, talk about suspense, this will certainly be the ultimate exterior mod. Just make sure that you get those lenses aimed in the right direction for driving and that ever to haunting inspection!!! Canít wait to see the results!!

Do you need the specs for aiming headlights? It'* pretty intense. You'll definatly want to get it right before you blind someone for that all important second.

I see what your saying.
I was going to put my car in the garage at nite and mess with the mounting untill the light ends up hitting the wall with the highest point of light being straight across from the headlights. I'm the best at run on sentences.
