I'll send him a message on facebook and see if he still has them. He hasn't had a fbody for a couple years, though I do believe he comes on here from time to time.

Re: 98+ headlights into lt1 thread

I was wondering if anyone actually finished this? Or is still in the process of doing it? I am interested in doing this, but my funds are limited... so I only have 1 shot at it. Any tips?

Thanks,
Dakota

Re: 98+ headlights into lt1 thread

You're almost definitely going to have to cut the lights based on the pics, but I don't know how you'd reseal them. High temperature silicone and what? Lights get hot. Don't know if ABS plastic would work. Maybe some aluminum sheet metal...

Re: 98+ headlights into lt1 thread

yes, you have to cut them. My headlights went with the car when I sold it. Its a PITA to measure/cut etc. To reseal, I would recommend some high temp clear RTV
