Has anyone installed the Rectangular headlights I really like that look a lot better. And how difficult are they to install. Thanks

I have seen them in cars over the years..mostly to make them non flip up with a solid lens cover over top..they do look cool but have no idea if there is a kit out there to make it an easy install..I can do a search and see if I can find one.

There USED to be a kit to convert the flip up lights to use rectangular bulbs, and still flip up/down. I can't remember who had them...maybe Eckler's, or ACI...maybe Motion. I think you can still get the kits to go rectangular and make them stationary, with the plexiglass covers, like Rich mentioned. Can't thing of how might have those, off-hand, either, but I bet they are available...

Ecklers has the stationary rectangular kit with the plexiglas covers, I saw them in their catalog yesterday.  Im sure other vendors have them as well.
