They look much better in person. They are a huge upgrade in light and function and if deleting entire headlight bucket, significant weight savings!

Headlight motors are 4.5lbs. Probably another 2 lbs for headlight and sheetmetal. 13 lbs. total. Get GE truck-lights if you want mind blowing headlights. 5 minute swap.

You need to reweigh some stuff there.

So the pop up headlight and motors weigh in at 30lbs. The sheetmetal removal would be at least 20lbs...so 50lb weight reduction is there

Theses housings are polycarbonate carbon fiber. Light and strong. They can be sanded and painted or clear coated. The lower bulb is low beam. The upper is high beam. Both are lit for high beam. The upper bulb is also the blinker....as these lights are dual function. The small middle bulb is the running light. Our focus with these is for restomods, v8 conversions, and track cars. The lighting improvement is significant.
