Does anyone have a pair of sunken headlights that they want to sell and how much they want for them??

Good luck mate - still haven't quite finished sourcing all the bits for mine yet. The lamps aren't so much of a problem but the brackets are harder to find and the buckets - well they're pretty rare and will set you back 25 quid-ish a pair.

Were you thinking of this car? I dunno but the guy is one of Mint's lot so maybe he can enlighten you. Doesn't look quite as bad as i'd imagined actually.

judging by the picture it looks like a manta front panel aswell :? so would the lights not jus fit right in ? correct me if I'm wrong

as for the sunken headlights, I am goin to a local garage (my dads mate) who has a book full of exploded views of cars, so I'm going to try and see if they have a part number or somethin :P

Surely manta lights are further apart than chevette lights? I reckon its either the centre section of a manta front panel welded onto the car or he's cut his own louvres into the chevette front panel.

I like it too but I somehow think if I tried something like that I'd be accused of going ricey... (again... I haven't actually installed the underlight yet)

Me no likey twin lights. Flush lights are miles better than the recessed jobs. However, have been told by 'friends' that car does look bug eyed. Pah. They all drive Focuses (Focii?).

When my pics i sent get put in the photo gallery you will see why i want some flush looking lights.

When people say Focus i always think of that cheap DIY store that sells the stuff that never does what it says on the tin

:D
