    The beauty of this upgrade is it works with cars with hideaway headlamp doors....you cannot see the wierd lense pattern when turned off..
    They may not look "factory correct" on cars with exposed headlamps.

    Speaking of them there headlight upgrades. I did that headlight harness upgrade you turned me on to, BUT needed another upgrade to the relay that controls the headlight doors so that work together.. any other upgrades needed for these type bulbs to work with hideaways?

    Here is the scoop on the headlight conversion. The Headlights are made by Stark Lights. The bulbs that came w/ them were inadequate so I upgraded to H4 9003 Led bulbs Rated at 2400 watts. Some mods had to be made to install. Overall costs weren't bad under 55.00 dollars. Ampere draw was measured at 7 amps. I expect the purists to give me a hard time. The performance so far has been pretty good. Much better than stock. With the upcoming Mopars W/ Big Daddy Show in Fla. I needed better lighting at night when driving down. Any questions PM me.

    Just thought I'd mention the electronic flasher I found for my cars as Super Bright only lists resistors for some cars. Why I don't know so I bought this based on Daniel Stern's recommendation. I has a second base included to reverse polarity without you having to fool around with it. Can't see it but does have the ground wire.

    This is pretty good. Honestly, id take better visibility anytime over the stock look. I just put in a conversion with 9007 bulbs but no led yet. I only bought the low beams for now because I wanted to see how they perform first. Little "weird" with the clear lens but does not look too bad. Probably gonna do an led conversion all around too!
