    I've been asked by many, and have wanted to do anyway, a projector retrofit for my porsche 968(and others).

    Stock, the car has halogen headlights that pop up when turned on. They work ok at best, but leave the car looking somewhat dated, especially when in the up position.

    I'd like to do something that somewhat resembles the 997 headlights. Although that's all aesthetic stuff.

    Something a bit like this:

    figured I'd see if anyone has any input





    other headlights I've made before someone things I'm just blowing smoke or fantasizing (this is OT afterall)

    I searched to find your last retro thread (couldn't find the clay one though. :wtc: ).

    I like the 997 idea, but how would you recreate the bucket design?

    I know Strosek made a conversion for the 944's. You should look into it.
