Well one headlight is done, I was going to fit full BA headlights into my EA, but after working out they just didnt slot in, even close to fitting easily (Plan A), yes I was prepared to cut some metal etc, I decided to go with my Plan B, BA internals put into EA headlight, well after alot of hacking, modifying, and stuffing around ...........

The ones you are thinking of are just painted black around the outside of the standard EA headlight reflector, I have actually but the BA headlight inards into the EA headlight with quite a bit of hacksaw work the BA headlights insides.

If you can get them already done would love to have link please.

lights cost me nothing as the lenses were stuffed and some brackets were broken (not from FTG), however FTG charge $150 a light for good ones when I last asked them.

I agree. Angel eyes would make an awesome job look tacky....
