    With the help from my neighbor that use to retrofit headlights professionally we have been trying to figure out how to update the front headlights on the 80. So this what we ended up building, a quad headlight retrofit on the 40th Anniversary FZJ80. I pulled the glass lens, sanded, and painted the chrome on the factory headlights. Then we done the fit test with the new projectors. I will post more pictures when the project is completed.

    Very interesting. Not my cuppa, but I sure would love brighter lights on the 80!

    Looks very nice! I’m sure the light output is much better now haha

    Did you use the stock light housings or did you use Depo housings for your retrofit?

    I duplicate that remark: "Not my cuppa but I'd like the lighting"

    I used the OEM housing because they stopped sell the Depot lights in the US. The OEM lens will be replaced with a clear lens. The HID lights run alot cooler and last about 5x longer. I just wanted do something different that is functional. Thanks for all the comments!
