I am sure everyone is interested in an affordable solution. Especially since the cost of the 90mm hellas is good right now.

This would be a great improvement over stock lighting and I'm searching for options for my own car at this time. So it seems like this is the way to go! This will be several months out at the soonest as I've got other projects on the table at the moment. For those that wish to help, please take some pictures of the headlights, both with the light in and out, and any shrouds on and off. This would be more for someone with an ST185 as I own the ST165. As time goes on I will update this thread with progress.

All I would want in a kit is a pair of mounting brackets that hold the dual Hella lights and shortened lifting linkages to match the new headlight rise height. If someone could package these together, they'd probably sell well to all 5th gen Celica owners. (If they wanted to, the kit maker could also offer a full kit with lights and wiring included at a premium price due to the extra costs and time required.)

Example bracket made by NeelTec:

These are the dimensions for the Hella mounting plate used with 90mm light modules like the ones used by NeelTec:

Post your findings! Id be down for a bracket too. It would save me the effort of having to make one myself...

I requested the plate and the arm modifier to change the rise height, since both would be needed.

If someone made themselves a housing that could hold HIDs or other bulbs, this might be a method to add a lens to the house.

EDIT: This prelude used 7x4 housing.
