Re: Replacement Headlights - Will 7" round fit
Ok... So I am reviving a REALLY old thread of mine to update it a bit. I always liked the pattern and clarity of the Delta Euro lights I had with my old (um sorry guys....) Jeep. My original desire was to replace the stock FJ lights with these, but I was discouraged from doing it since it had never been done, and because of course, everything Toyota makes is perfect. Hogwash! I settled for putting an HID conversion bulb into my stock housings and got a ton of light, but sacrificed longevity since the HID bleaches the cheap plastic innards of the FJ's housing and turns the silver reflectors white and cloudy resulting in an absolutely worthless set-up in little less then 2 years.
This brings me back to here. I got fed up with settling, and did not want to settle again or go through the issues of placing some HID projector kit into the housing that may, or may not hold up when it is subjected to the abuse of going off-road on a regular basis.
I purchased the Delta Euro lights in the 7" round set-up and set about deconstructing the stock housings to see if I could make it work. Where I sit now is I need to make a simple ring to mount the lights to that will mount to the stock light bucket from Toyota. I need to find a custom metal fab shop in Dallas that can help me with this as it is a bit past my basic abilities.
Anyone have the name of a good fab shop in Dallas? The project is literally 2 rings and 6 bolts away from becoming a reality, and will be WELL worth it. I took both lights and set them up on my truck on a side-by-side comparison, and the Delta's give a much more controlled pattern with better low-ground spread for low-beam usage, and a MUCH longer throw for the high-beams with a much better clarity and no chance for fading or fogging since they are glass and chromed metal instead of plastic.
Any help you guys can give me would be much appreciated.
