C5 Non Popup headlights Photos

Here are the pics!!!

Hello guys,

I'm new in here, usually I hang around on my Italian Corvette Site but I remember reading some time ago on this forum a lot of comments about changing the headlights with non-popup , thuis was before I decide to do it and I believe at the time there were a lot of people interested so here are some pics of my 98 vette with her new "eyes"!!!!!
By the way at the moment I'm working onboard a Cruise Ship out of LA so if you have question give me always soemtime before I can get back online....
Not sure how to upload picture so I have insert them in a word file...hope you can see and hope you like it......

Ciao,

The cost of the Light itself is about 900$ , then you need to modify slightly the front fascia and the side fender so you'll need a paint job for that so it all depend how much it cost in your paint shop
Here is the front....

only two of us with a corvette and when we I park mine around people are just looking at it all the time..it did cost me a bit for the mod but the paint shop did a very good job ! Next mod I want to insert a double din Monitor so I'm reading now all of the info from the form !!!
Will let you see ..in few months what is coming out...

That car looks absolutely amazing! I have the C5R projector lights on mine too and its by far one of my favorite mods! They are not as cool as yours but I still love them. And you did what I did and did the xenons at the same time no since even doing the conversion and not doing the xenons IMO.
