What about retro fitting a projector lens into the sprint headlight. BTW what's the headlight diameter, 7 inch? Maybe trying other models ie land rover, Jeep wrangler, Suzuki Sierra and other cars with similar headlights have more easily available projector lens conversion kits or something, dunno just a suggestion...

Early Alfa headlight reflectors are bad, and couldn't get matching set, so I bought E30 headlights but it was a very awkward mod as the plastic casting that mounts lights was so thick and typically german and made from granite. This is the mod you always hear of.

I then bought a set of Mk4 Ford Escort Quad Morrette headlights for £100 and used a set of front cover trims from a early sud, the ones with separate fronts. I used butterfly nuts to hold them on. They were really bright and exactely same sized as original alfa lights and same position bizzarly. You would never have known they weren't Alfa headlights from distance, but BMW ones have that smile in the unit. I will dig pictures out.

Yeeeeahhhhhh Kevin... To the Rat Mobile....

I have just got a brand new set of morette headlights off eBay with bulbs for 47 pound for 4 but backing is different ie fixing it to backplate will be tinkering with them to make fit.
