I hear if you mimic that dance with a plasma cutter that you can fit any headlights you want

After much measuring, cutting with dremel disc/bit combo, sawzall and even the plasma cutter I managed to get them in there- the way it sits now looks surprisingly stock, The only thing I have to make sure is that the hood will clear the front inner corner of the light-

Don't worry, pics and a full write-up will follow soon if it all works but so far I think it looks pretty slick...I know everyone isn't going to like it, but since when do we all like what everyone else does. If it works it will give us all a whole other option for lights since there are so many different lights avail for the 88-98 GM trucks.

Subscribing. Man, that has got to look sweet. I've been checking out the lights in stylin concepts for the S-10's but still not sure how to go about it. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Well the truck headlights went in with little trouble- granted it did require considerable cutting of the stock headlight bracket and cutting out some of the metal behind it but its possible.

I'm sure someone out there cout either modify the truck lights to fit factory brackets or make a bolt-in kit with-out too much effort.

Re: For those that were interested in a new headlamp assembly for the 93-97 Camaros..

I know its old... but, I'm thinking about doing this hella 90mm round lights thing for the lens/projector style. Anybody know if the low beam housing with the lens has the light cutoff line? (not sure what the technical name for it is). Basically where there is a defined line where it blocks off the light so your not shooting out light as if it were highbeams.

Any "projector" has the cut-off line you are referring to. It is what makes them "projectors".

The Hella 90mm projector is an outstanding light. I have these as fogs for my wife's Formula and they are better than the headlights.

The problem is that those will NOT fit in the space for the 93-97 Camaro headlights. Even if you were to have the ability to fully fabricate something to hold them, the lights themselves would sit higher and or lower above and below the space that is there. Somewhere I think I may have seen someone actually do this, but it would require a ton of fabrication.

The biggest hurdle is that the housings from the factory are very small. To use that same small space and try to find an actual projector is very hard to do. I have seen some guys use mini projectors. They don't put off much light and I think they look horrible.

Good luck
