Personally it's the whole u cut in the bumper that wrecks it for me. But the lights look good I like the idea and the look but yeh it needs refinement. Curious did u have toremove the faux carbon trim below the bonnet trim or did u choose too?

the bumper is a spare from the blacktrac, my original got wasted when i had to get pulled out of the lake last winter, so yea thatl change too lol
the plastic fake carbon had to go. im going for a more 205 look, even if the plastic was still intact (yea sumone backed into it n trashed it) the lights sit low in the OEM frogeye cavities so i couldnt make them work.
the amazing thing is i didnt have to adjust them at all :shock: theyre like perfectly aligned just by me eying it up while i was making the brackets! i think its luck, but this may be a recognition of a very valuable skill 8)
but yea im happy with the look so far n its only gonna get better :smokes:

It's pretty goofy looking with all the weird gaps you have created. Seems like the head lights should open more, reducing those gaps, then that would allow for a normal bumper trim to be put back instead of sheet metal.

have you seen the RE-Amemiya RX7 flat headlight conversion? this reminds me of that, and i think it would be cool to a full removal of the flip and to cover the headlights in a molded pice of polycarbonate. thatd would be badass. lookd decent though. get a new bumper.
May be moving on from the All Trac world.
