Hi,
I tried to find something about below kind of ST165 headlights at forum but without any result unfortunately.
Does anyone know something more where can I get them ?
As I heard they were sold only in Japan.

Yeah, apparently is was available in Japan many years ago. I recall looking at a Japanese site with the headlight pieces at a junkyard, but don't have the link :(

Nothing special yet. All I know Hideki did his lights mod on his own. As i see no chances to buy a conversion kit. Emailed people from Japan didn't respond. :shrug:
Any ideas how to get that ?

The only way seems to be custom made light mounting.

The picture of fixed light is not mine, mine was standard retractable.
The car on the picture is my friend's and which was a custom made based on the genuine head lights. It's one-off and I thought is costed around $1500.
As far as I know there are 3 guys with fixed light at the moment and no one willing to sell them.

Info
Cover on the top : FRP
Black trim around the lamp : FRP or Aluminium (depends on the shop who made it)
Removed retract linkage, fixed the genuine lamp base? bracket? with metal plates.
