Flush mount Headlights

Post by kiwinelson9879 » Tue Oct 25, 2016 8:44 pm

Hi All,

Has anyone come up with a kit/solution for flushmount headlights that could be legal on the road?

Im looking to save a little clutter up front for a clean engine bay look.

Cheers
N

Really?......with respect, have you felt the aero drag when the pop ups pop up?

Well that is.....I used to feel it years ago when I travelled at any speed. Wife and I drove the car separately and each of us referred to the 'air brakes' coming on.

I'm really not a fan of sleek/flush headlights on these cars or FD's aye. I don't think it suits them at all!

I saw this post on Facebook (I think) recently which I thought was quite cool if you're trying to save weight/clean up the bay. Might get a little annoying if you drive in the dark often though :lol:

that would be pretty cool in a race car, but for the road that can't be legal

It's all personal preference but I agree with you Hobba - pop-ups look so much better on the FB's and FD's than the fixed ones.
