Projector

What do you think about projector headlights on a 99-04 mustang? I am thinking about the smoked projector headlights from AM or get smoked oe style. I have a silver GT with black accents

I think stock head lights look best, but that my opinion. Just get a buffer and buff the crap out of them with mothers wax let dry and wipe off, or get a head light restoration kit and do it that way, brings them back to life

If you replace your headlamps only get the lamps from the 01-04 they have the black inlay And look much better than the silver predecessor

Re: Projector

the ONLY way to go with projectors is to retrofit the actual setup into the stock housing, all others on the market look horrible and are not true projector headlight setups. Its not cheap but many have done it (say 700-100 bucks for both headlights)

Re: Projector

yup you have to retro fit (install the lens etc etc) into the stock housing... if someone would mass product these units it would be far cheaper.. and they would sell good

Re: Projector

my fave are the dark smoked oem style lights from AM. not too dark but def gives a nice stealth look. not a big fan of projectors either.
