Iíve been thinking about making a GTS headlight conversion kit for few years and have been working on it for few months already.
I am not done working on it, but Iím at about 80% done. (every time Iím doing a part, I find something to modify on it!)

My goal is to produce and offer to the 924/944 community a good kit at the fraction of the price of whatís already available on the market.
I still have to run number and check shipping, but Iím hoping to offer them for around $300USD shipped in Canada and USA for a full kit,
to be confirm this is only a quick estimate. International will be a bit more expensive due to shipping.

A full kit will include:

- 2 covers The covers are made of plexiglass 3mm thick and will be available in different tint (black, bronze, red, blue, green and orange)

- 2 buckets The bucket are made of plastic 3mm thick and will also be available in different color (black and grey for sure).

-2 lights The light are 4x6.5 glass/metal, H4, 60/55 W. (Iím still waiting on delivery of my set)

Each part will also be offer individually, so you could only buy the covers or else, except the lights are sold in pair,
so if you break a part you will be able to replace it.

I still have to work on the installation process and I will try to make it as simple as possible.
I will post pics when complete but here are few pics of it at about 80% without the lights. (Sorry for the dust all over the car )
Please let me know your interest (just to give me an idea).
I will post prices and more pics when Iím done and ready to take orders.

Iím open to your comments and/or questions.

Thanks

@ morghen The covers are form over a mold and look more like the original one.

Not a good afternoon, I did a new bucket and a bronze cover and cracked both of them.
Anyway, hereís the bucket with a 4x6 light that I have (made of plastic, poor quality) just to see what it will look like with a clear and a bronze cover.
The light doesnít look quit right; I will have to work on the light position.

looks good.

+1 on clean it up and post more pics. Could you also weight the components and post that as well? Looking to replace the pop-up lights on the race car but want to retain some type of lighting for enduros.

Thanks.

@ Ian89C4 Not a problem, I will weight everything when I'm done and when I receive the new light.

Interested. If you can produce consistent quality between molds I'd take a set.

I always have the idea that these headlight conversions aren't adjustable, while they can be adjustable.
Not sure how regulations are, but besides that it's just plain annoying if the lights arent adjusted right.

So are they, and how?

Yes, they will be by using something similar to the one I setup on my GTS headlight 2 years ago.

will the lights be a sealed unit or would we be able to put our own bulbs in?

I would be interested. Anyone have pics of this type of light on a narrow body car that's not flared up?

i hope this helps:

you need to address these quality issues, probably on the mold....
your part is too small...you need to make it bigger.
check out how the deutschnine products look.
