Yes we know what you're talking about, and you should have done a search. I think for the most part nobody's found anything directly designed for tbirds. I know the BMW OEM halos are at the smallest just over 3" in diameter, too big for our headlights. Someone's discussed using some of the clear rod from like a set of window blinds and molding it into shape before. Or if you find a kit (like the set for his accord) under 3" in diameter, you should be able to mod them to work with a tbird; I've heard there's an acura kit that works but I haven't seen it myself

That is a cool write up. I wonder what they would look like on some 96-7's?

I've thought about doing it but it'll make my headlights look ENTIRELY too busy with what I've already got planned

Photoshops don't count unless you're actually doing it!

I want to do it, but am afraid of screwing up & being without headlights...

It wouldn't be too hard. You'd have to be seriously trying to mess up to jack up your headlights that badly. The worst you'd be doing is pulling the lense off your headlight and tapping a wire through the housing

Ahhh, you wanna give it a projector look, I got ya now. It'd look kinda cool but I think you'd be losing a LOT of light by doing it that way
