I'm thinking of opening them up and mounting a different set of lights behind the lenses, like these monaro style ones. I've gotta find a VT and measure it up to see how close the dimensions are before I prep for surgery :)

A mate of mine just put a set of those in his VT, Does anyone know if someone makes a similar set for our Fords?

On eBay.com.au you can find Performance Headlights for the AU, or for the EA-EL's those lookalike BAXR ones. Nothing really special though, pitty, couse the EF/EL's could really do with a headlight upgrade!

Unfortunately they just look as though someone painted parts of the reflector. The ones my mate got are three individual lights inside the housing, with the low beam being a projected beam through a magnifying glass.
His are aftermarket.

I think he paid around $300-$400 a pair, Not sure where he got them from I'll have to ask him and find out.
Unfortunately I do recall him saying thet they only had commodore ones.

It's a bit of a tread mine, but i'm needing to remove a lens from an EL headlight to repair one of the adjusters inside. so my question is doe's anyone know what the melting temp of the lens glue is?

Cheers.

I use a heat gun set on 600C and just move it around until it warms up enough.
The key is to take it slow so you don't melt the lens.
Heat it for a bit all around then test to see if it will come apart.

all good, I discovered the head light didn't fit in the oven anyways, I just left it in the car in the sun for a few hours and it separated easily.
