I'm piecing together my own setup.

Clear lenses: $59
1992 1996 Ford F150 F250 F350 Bronco Headlights Clear Head Lights Pair Lamp Set | eBay

Projector HID kit $125
3" Car Bi Xenon H1 H4 H7 Universal HID Projector Lens Kit Angel Eye 2 Ballast | eBay

Just get the clear silicone glue to reseal the housings.

Well i have the lovley lights from lmc. Pattern was horrible with bulbs thats why im doing this. Have a heat gun now.

I ordered them from The Retrofit Source online: headlight upgrades for all applications.

There more expensive but reviews are great on them. And a 5 year warranty.

Let the fun begin!

Some use the heat gun method, some use the oven method..I prefer the oven method because it heats up all of the adhesive and you can split the headlights apart in about 10 minutes per headlight. Others will say "you'll melt the headlights plastic housing and warp it and ruin it!" Only if you overheat them. Preheat to 250, and heat each light for 8-10 minutes, during the separation step you might need to put them back in there to heat up the adhesive if it's taking you longer.

It's not that hard..I had both headlights seperated just fine in 30 minutes (that includes the oven heating up).
