Looking for some highbeam covers or pic's of what you guy's have done to cover the hole. I'm not using the highbeams as I can't fit the bulbs for the turbo tubes.

What?

If you're talking about what I'm thinking of, find some plexiglass, rough it up, cut it, paint it black.

My intercooler is sitting behind the grille between the lights so the tubes are in the way to put the bulbs in. I've seen some cars having some kinda grille in the highbeam lights, they sat on the inside and were curved like the lens would be. Not sure if it was a fab up job or bought

Princess Auto sells off road lights that are made by Autopal (they come in a red box, one light per box, and they have a chrome housing). They are a 5 3/4" ~ 100 watt H3 setup, that when you take the housing apart, they have the three little tabs on the back of the lense that are the same tabs as the sealed beam. They don't have a plug on the back as the bulb is countersunk into the housing... depending on how tight your fit is, they may squeeze in, and they might be a better option than no highbeam at all. They don't sit as deep as the sealed beam, but mount up perfectly. Super bright clear lenses, flood patern, and come in clear or yellow, if they still sell them.

I usually find them in the "surplus" section.

If you can't find them, I believe I have a spare or two lying around with clear lenses... I'd just have to know how much clearance you need.

I work at the auto Wreckers on Fruitland so Princess auto is only 5 mins from me, only problem I have going in there is I come out with a ton of stuff I will never use...lol... I will check them out tomorrow night and see what they have and tonight I will measure the space I have.

Thanks
