I wonder how many of us with Early Cars have surrounds
that look something like this ??
I can't even blame the DAPO.... I painted them in 1973.
These repro's would make life a lot easier....

I even cut my rear valance down to look like a later one...

DOH...





Most of the white headlight surrounds I pick up have been painted black. I'm all for the new ones that 914 rubber are making but the old ones can be brought back. I remove the paint by soaking in mineral spirits and then a long soak in bleach. This usually gets them back to a light cream, not bright white. After this process, if I'm not satisfied, I just paint them white with white plastic paint. If I know I am going to paint them, I skip the soaks and just bead blast them and paint. I'm not saying you shouldn't buy repos, I just don't want people to throw away the originals thinking they are ruined.

The problem is you loose the texture. So yes, you can even paint black ones white, but again the paint does fill some of the texture.

These are coming online this next week and will be shipping by Friday.
PMs will go out mid week so sign up now if you want the deal.


@Mikey914 Do you have a price yet?

Yes will be posting up Monday. We are compiling a complete kit that will have the surrounds, screws and clip nuts , as well as the pivot bushings , arms (for the late (bushings for the early metal arm, to the headlight adjuster backs and even the new screws we just made for this "kit" will run a separate GB for just the screws as we made them with an improvement over factory. The full kit will even include the paint and zip ties to hold the wiring. Also working on the install instructions to help out. Both early and late versions.

Waiting on the screws from the "Product Development Department" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

Base kits are ready but the screws are not. They will have to come out later as we are still waiting on them.

ME,me,me. Pretty please. I'm in for the early whites.


Hey, I was wondering what happened to this GB. When it first appeared I went to the 914rubber website, was redirected to the new website where I looked at the white headlight surrounds and was very interested but thought I'd wait for the group buy to see if I might go that route instead.

There's been nothing on the GB and now I can't find the white surrounds on the new site, nor the old.

Did I miss something?

We were still working on components for the kits and options that you will likely want to go along with the kits. The Headlight adjuster screws proved to be more involved due to their length. So rather than wait for every possible option, we have the base kits ready and will continue to work on getting a screw kit ready for another listing.

I am interested in a LED headlight upgrade.

Hi Tom,
We were waiting on the needed parts to come in so we could offer the LED Lights, new H4 Globes if you need them and a load resistor that you will need if you are running fog lights. (I think you are right?) Anyway. You can find them on the new site now:
https://900designs-container.zoeysite.com/l...ight-bulb-set-1


Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

I am interested in two sets for early cars. Still debating color choices, but one black for certain

We set them up so you can choose the white or black in either kit (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

Interested (early white surround) but just to add a variation I’m going to install GT pop up so probably don’t need the motor links. All will become clear in due course I guess


@sixerJ Interesting, if you remove the motor and the push rod, will not need the brushes and the splash guard, but you will be left with a hole into your trunk that you will likely want to seal up. What are your plans for that? I sent you a PM if you want the discount code for the kit

^ What I am curious about is the reach of the lights seen above. Looks like the LED has much better illumination up close, but like the halogens reach farther? Can that be right?
