I think I saw the stationary kind in the Ecklers catalog. I don't have one of their's to ref to though.

I saw a steel bumper C3 this summer with the popups glassed in and the four lights mounted under the bumpers in the grill. I think that was a home made job.

I found this one.... but I know there are different styles on some other cars in the gallery. But, the gallery is big and i can't find the other pics at the moment.

You'll have to stroll through the C3 section, choose "random" as your view and you'll see some.

:D

i've seen several of the corvette mags carry them, but by the time you're done buying them you could probably find original headlights for the same or even less cost on ebay.


those are kind of expensive...remember, there is no "cheap" way out when it comes to corvettes. they got you coming and going no matter which way you try.

Headlight covers..

I know years ago there was a company producing Glamor Eyez..was a flat piece of clear area over the light and smoke colored non lighted area that wrapped in front of and to the sides of the pop up headlights. They were pretty neat..was pre 92' of course and I didn't order them...(kicks self). Really have not seen anything else like em out on the market..good luck with your search!

Thanks, Joe..peace <*)))><
