On my way home from work tonight I thought I had a headlight out, but I checked and didn´t. Which brings me to this question. Has anyone upgraded their headlight/foglight bulbs and what kind did you get?
It should work in the same manner on your LX, Paul. The hood/bumper/headlight arrangement is basically the same as the GT, so your hood will be just fine. As for the alignment, I am still refining my design, so it is adjustable, though not easily done. When the headlight pattern is aligned correctly, the lens on the BMW unit does not match the hoodline, parking light, or grill angles very closely, so aesthetically, the best arrangement would be to eliminate the BMW lens and use the clear GTS covers. For my purposes, however, I am sitcking with the BMW lenses. I like the cold air induction between the bumper and the headlight.
No other pics just yet. I have been too busy with travelling, the holidays and other car projects. Just finished a full suspension on a ´93 Miata, which took up my extra time. I plan on getting back to playing with the lights, but since their pattern is so far superior to stock, I have not been stressed about getting the alignment perfect. The bracketry looks pretty rough, so eventually, I would like to refine my work. As with so many projects, however, once you get it working correctly, you tend to put off the final finishing touches. If I think of it, I will try to get some more pics to Blade and let him post them for me.
There is another escort that I know of that has the headlight conversion done to it. This guy on 808rides.com has a BMW conversion done. However he changed the hood, bumper and fenders to pull it off. Infact when looking at his scort I dont think a single body panel was left untouched....its really quite amazing to see that it even still looks like an escort
