    Well, here goes. Maybe I've been reading too many of @madmike1157 's posts but I'm in the mood to custom modify something. I've been thinking about this for a while but am finally ready to pull the trigger. A while back I saw some pictures of a guy with an 85' that had green headlights and it got me to thinking.... Now, I want them. Before you all jump on me for being ghetto or what not, it would be strictly for use at the track and just to keep the different thing that I've got going on now going. This is a picture of the current front end of the car and the 4 glass headlights.

    The outer most bulbs are wired up and are working headlights. The inner bulbs is where I would like to have the green lights for blasting down the track at night time. I thinking about drilling a hole in the back of the lights and installing a green LED bulb. Maybe epoxy it in place? Then I got to thinking, and this is dangerous I know... Can I install a sealed beam bulb in the back of the other working headlights? Cut them open and epoxy a sealed beam bulb into them perhaps?

    This is when I got to Google and found these

    I'm not sure how I feel about them. My first reaction is that they look too new and fancy for my old looking car. All opinions are welcome as I'm not sure what exactly I'm going to end up with at this point.

    @Diode Dynamics do you have any input or offer something that I could use? If you think I've just lost my mind, feel free to just say so!

    Thanks in advance everyone,

    -Nick

    Check out the retrofit source store I retrofitted my Tacoma headlights with some e46 projectors with a white halo, maybe you could do the same with a green halo or even as much as a green projector.

    Check out JCWhitney. I've seen colored lense replacements for the bulbs in 4 eyes. They may still have those.

    @84Ttop What about a strobe kit for the lights? Like the cops have. All you do is drill a little hole at the back of the light fixture and pop em in. They have little grommets, a control box (speed of flashes), and little boot covers to change the color of the lights. Still stock-ish lights, no need for projectors, win win.

    @84Ttop you could also use the vinyl that is a transparent laminate. Get a batch of a green you like and stick it to the headlights...
