    ive searched up and down the net but fell short of a legit build post of how to install the headlights
    i've heard u gotta mod the brackets to make em fit.
    I aint crazy about the bmw front clip coversion tho it does look different from all the other stuff u see out there.
    if anyone find a full build on installin the headlights let me know or post a link?
    hey lowe u got a post bout how u made yours? i like how they turned out would love to get some instruction on how to make em.

    ive seen one car on cardomain with e36 1 piece projectors and corolla tails im sure yall know which one im talkin about. i'll post a link when i find the pic but its clean lost as if it were stock

    i got the E36's all polished and brackets made up..i used those small signs you sometimes see on peoples lawns when they had a roofer come over the small plastic sign with the metal in it. its strong enough to weld so i made brackets if anyone would like i can post pix up

    You mean this one?
    [​IMG]

    It looks like the JSP 60" Grand Touring wing I had on mine.

    In these shots, the wing is sitting on lid loosely. If you look close, in the last shot you can see the RTV tube used to balance it. It has been for sale for a while and will go cheap. PM me if interested.

    sweet that aint bad of a deal
    it reminds me of the cosworth wing just without the spoiler on the top of the hatch window.
    hopefully after christmas i'll have some christmas cash to toss around cause i found out i needed a new alternator and a few other pieces for the car
    brakes seat belt b pillar new headlights etc etc

    That reminds you of this???

    Not even remotely close IMO. It does however resemble the lower hatch spoiler RMM used to sell.

    eh
    maybe i was wrong i could've sworn i saw one on a cosworth
    it looked cool
    cosworth wings are the most wild wings since the daytona's wing back in 69

    dont mean to bug yall on this topic so much but i didnt feel like postin a new one about it and piss in everyones corn flakes
    so my question is...

    1 piece projectors for a 92-99 3 series....
    the corners.... would i have to do some fab work to the fenders to get them to fit?
    and how about the headlight support etc etc
    a checklist would be nice
    i was lookin at getting a set of these

    Correct, to use the one piece BMW projectors you will need to fill in the gap on the fender, because the escort corners are a lot longer than the BMWs. It'll be like a shark fin shaped hole in the fender.
