if i recall the back of sealed beams just have a plastic rim covering where the bulb would normally twist and pull out. you'd need to look for yourself..i'd guess it's pretty self explanitory once you check. i see camaros running HIDs all the time in their sealed beams btw...so the same bulb number my work

no problem...once you figure out what bulb to go with here's a great brand to check out for the HID kit.

there's a big difference between those two housings..ones a projector and the others just a standard housing with an HID bulb. I'm always iffy on projectors unless they are retrofits because you'll pretty much use a higher end projector. if the feedback is good though and you can maybe research the quality of the brand i'd consider them

They're both projectors. At least that's what the descriptions say.

unless that's the crappiest thin walled projector ever built that second one isn't. If that's really the thickness of them then i'd stay away from both housings and look elsewhere
