For a short nose '92.

All i can find is standard and some costly angle eye ones? Seen pics of dual headlight conversions with a body colour panel over them, No thanks.

I will be using smoke indicators and am looking at replacing the headlights but it looks like standard is the best bet at the moment?

anyone seen anything "nice" out there?

I asked the same question a couple of days before, dont know how to add links on the post so do a search with my name youll get the answers I did.

There was a nice one on ebay but a bit pricey and prob only left hooker only.

Cheers already seen your post so i take it that there is bugger all unless you want some Dayline or some twin headlight conversions?

I'm with you not looking so good body colour! but i think that they sort of blend in with the indacator they work

Just a word of warning, if your getting headlights off Ebay.de you may be getting them for left hookers and wont pass an MOT.

just a thought but..... could you not build projectwo's??? would you just need 2 round lights then build a housing for them to what ever style you want? (obviously housing would need to fix well and need adjusters but, standard light should be fine??

it cant be that hard to make something up in the same style of projektzwo lights

if you start with something like this http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g68/golfgtioz/th_13_1_sbl.jpg (http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g68/golfgtioz/13_1_sbl.jpg), fabricating mounting points shouldn't be that hard and they come fitted with beam adjusters . then make a fibre glass cover and you should have a set of lights even better than projektzwo's


and the finished article maybe

Just found this thread .......... made me laugh ........ 'It can't be that difficult' he says ! LOL:

He's right of course, someone ought to manufacture decent headlights for the T4


I'm on it guys ! T: :D


Oh, btw ......... those DRL types in the picture ......... they're rubbish, even worst than your original old headlights. I know, I've got some. :(
So save your money for the time being, great things are about to happen in the T4 world ! T:

This is part of the problem nowdays Gaz ........

Everybody wanting, needing everything right away, at once, can't wait, everybody always in a rush, never stopping to think just for one minute. Always stressed out.

We have all the time in the world ! :)


Why not just be like me ......... take each day as it comes and enjoy living it. :D

But our vans don't!

Mine seems to accumulate little bits of damage day-by-day.
Recently (last week) someone hit my front bumper, panel, and smashed the indicator....more things to fix!
Nice they just drove away and left nothing about it! :(

I was about to say ....... you must be a poor driver then Gaz ! I:

But I know exactly what you mean now, barstewards !!! ....... it was the same when I was in Jersey, always finding new 'damage' to my van. Every other day I had a new different paint chips from someone's car door on the side of my van :(


Wana hear the worst one ? ..........

A few years back I used to own a Lotus Esprit, I parked up in a public car park to do some shopping in town. When I got back to my car, there was a woman with a huge landcruiser parked next to me ......... as she was putting her toddler in the back of said chelsea tractor ......... all her shopping bags were sat on the roof of my beloved Lotus !!! :mad:

Understandable, as the roof of a Lotus only comes up to waist hight ........ saved her bending down to pick-up her shopping !


People, ay !

When I was in UK last time, someone in one of those "SUVs" parked next to me.
The women opened the passenger door and there was a "BONK", and a bonk in the side of my van when I looked!
I waited until the driver came back out from the service area, and pointed it out to him....
"It was windy, not her fault" he said!

I told him, "Look, I have a dent (OK only small) in the side of my pristine van (as if!)....you either give me 20 quid now, or we wait for the police!"

I got my 20 quid, but it still doesn't make up for the 2mm deep "bonk" in my van!

People have ZERO respect for other peoples cars.
