EA81 headlight conversions, dual->single round
Posted 30 March 2005 - 07:17 PM
anyway dan has a 84 wagon with quad lights, this morning we came across a single round front end off a (86?) hatch...even though getting all the bezels and peices, by looking at the rad support we noticed there seem to be extra brackets tacked on to it for this setup..
.so has anyone else done this conversion? will it work with the fabbing of some brackets on the stock dual lights rad support?

You can get H4 conversion for the quad too

i asked mikeW about doing this on my quad lighted wagon and that i was concerned about the switch because i didn't know how to wield nor did i have very much money to put into changing head lights that already worked. in response he said, "why let that stop you?" he then took me over to his red hatch and, as my jaw dropped(this was the first lifted subaru i had ever seen), he proceeded to show me how he cut off the old one and just bolted on the correct core support (i prefer the 80-81 core support, the best round head light grill IMO) for the single square head lights which he liked better. i would have done the switch but i got my fix by converting my hatch to round.
if you're concerned about strengh you could do it this way and then later have someone tack it in place...
hope this helps

I figure I'll possibly have the only 84 turbo wagon with the dual round headlights, the clear/yellow rock guards (oh ya, euro, right Brad?) and a third light.
So, I'll get the parts and start pluggin away...And I'll let you guys know what happens.
