Thats what i was going to do before i saw the Ba conversion. The black paint doe3s look very good, but i nearlly got a hardon at the light swap, haha.

The inside of my light cases will still get the black paint anyway, as the surround of the BA reflectors doesn't perfectly fill the EB case.

Will look something like this, except painted where the arrows are inside.

Yep, I have this on my list of mods to do.

The hard part is trying to get some BA headlights on the cheap.

Hey man,
keep your eyes peeled on ebay, i missed out on a pair yeasterday of geniunes that went for around $120, all because i was late from work.

Aftermarkets are usually 180 a pair, but i'm also trying to do cheaper. :)

Not sure if its still there but there was a BA taxi at park ridge wreckers among the AU's a couple weeks back... Both headlights were in the boot.

EDIT: I'd be tempted to see how much they want for them if I didn't have to get the sump gasket looked at.

I might go have a look tomorrow. Every wreckers i've rang today wants around 135 140 EACH secondhand. What a bunch of C**k.

Park ridge said they had none left when i rang monday, but may not know about the boot ones.

If not i might just buy some ebay ones. $180 a pair.
