hijet round headlight conversion

Post by scotia on Tue Mar 21, 2017 10:03 am

i was thinking about the round headlights and how many of us would love them.
also it could be a nice sullution for you uk hijet drivers who strugle with getting headlights.
patrick did it with his hijet woodbed project.
looked realy cool but that did involve some custom metalwork what not everybody can do as easy like he did.
he also fitted the old 993cc bumper and grill.











now i was thinking about using the 993cc headlight suroundings on a 1.3 hijet.
arent they the same size??




looking at both types i think they are the same



so couldnt you fit 993cc headlight suroundings with vw golf 2 headlights
like this


would look something like this
i know its not a 1.3 but i am talking about the rough look of round lights with 993cc like suroundings



would that be a nice cheap option without doing custom steelwork, relocating blinkers or fitting older type of bumper ??

there are a lott of aftermarket cheap lights you could fit like crosshair lights or angel eyes



take a look here for prices and models

don't think they are an exact match, not far off though. when I converted a 1.3 grille for my 993 I had to change the angle of the outside edges of the grill to match? he edges if the ligh surround where they meet.

ok yes it could be that you have to fix the grill to.
but looking at the corner bodyshape dont you think they will fit?
i thought the cornerpieces are the same (the part you sprayed grey to)

the corners etc are probably OK as you say, thinks its only that inside edge.
