I really like the look of this mod. Do you have any pics of them installed and open? Do you have more info on what you did?

Here are some pix of the headlights in the openings. Paint and exterior stuff is last on the list so I have not made much progress.

So basically, new Hella units and shorten the link is all there is to it? What Hella's did you use?

The Hella units I used are the same as TT posted above. I did have to cut a hole in the door behind the headlights. The Hella units are deeper and the center of the headlight is now moved up. Shortening the link will alter door open height and still retain the toggle lock feature of the linkage.

Larry, did you bolt them down or is that temporary? Hella sells sets of adjuster screws. The screw has a plastic body that bayonet lock into the ears of your lamp unit (you only need 3 per unit obviously) and they have plastic cups that you can put into the frame, that way you can adjust them.
The part # for the adjusters is 9XB 152 977-001 (set of 3 screws, for 1 lamp unit). They fit units 008 193/008 194 (normal & xenon kit)

I did get the screw adjuster kit with my lamps. I ordered them from Summit but I don't think they carry them anymore. Right now I have them mounted with poly grommets (for the "swivel") and 10-32 screws into the back plate on the door. Not sure what I will do in the end.

If you are not using the screw sets, I'm looking for some LOL. Hella is a German brand but be damned if I can get the screws here. I'm lacking 4 of them. I found them in the UK, the US but here?.... noooooo....they only sell junk here I swear!

Looks like it's your lucky day! The ones I have are 152-977-02, ball on one end and hex on other. A plastic bayonet nut on the screw and a split plastic ball socket for each screw. Sound like what you need?
