I'm on the search for some smallish (4-5") driving lights of decent quality and pricing. Any suggestions on where to look?

I want to cut them into a front bumper so compact housing design would be preffered.

Any on-line sources?

Have you contacted Mot for some OEM/JDM lights that he might have in his stash. He only has high quality JDM stuff. Drop him a line. Hell of a good guy.

Onur,

Thanks for the plug! :crybaby:

Unfortunately I only have fogs (except my own stash of Hella's and Koito's :hillbilly:) and they all mount on (top of) the bumper.

It sounds like you've got it resolved already, but I liked what Steve (airlaird) had done with his bumper (had fog/driving mounted in it). I believe it's no longer his rig though...

Good luck and have fun!

A bit of a late reply, but I mounted Hella 500's on the top of my stock bumper and replaced the 55W H3 bulbs with 100W, upgrading wiring and fuses of course. The beam pattern is kind of a circular spotlight, but very bright with great penetration - much longer than high beams, and for about $75 for the lights it was good value. The seal around the glass headlamp to the ABS plastic housing wasn't water tight enough for my taste so I put a bead of clear silicone in. Very happy with the result. If I was to do it again I'd use the Slee wiring harness instead of building my own. New to the forum and didn't know they existed...

Good luck.
