Check out that link! They state they fit all 96, caprices, impalas, and roadmasters.

BUt wait a second. Do these even work like regular headlights?

From what I have been told, they add 75 horsepower.

My understanding is that you mount them to your headlights and then wire them to the parking lights, therefore keeping your standard bulb, just adding a light around it. Not really visible at night with the headlights on, facing dead-on as the headlights are too bright, yes, but with the PARKING lights on, you too can be the first on your block to bring your car into the world of random gadgetry.

Headlights in the OVEN. MMMMMmmm

I don't know about that, but lightbulbs of basically any kind work great when cooked in your microwave oven.

75 HP?! awesomeeeee!

I want them. hahaha

So I would have to dissemble my headlights and mount them to fir around my current bulbs?

Basically yes. I checked the auction, it has an installation video at the bottom. You need an Oven.

Let me talk to your Mum, she forgot to teach you something.

Yeah, basically, what you're doing is melting the sealant of the headlight housing by putting it in an oven. Sounds AWESOME.

You can also paint the shells, like in the video, where they went all MARAUDER style and painted them black, but why you'd put black headlight housings on a white car like in the video, is beyond me. Maybe hey plan to paint the car later on, particularly the hood, as angel-eye headlights are typically on the same cars that have their hoods painted black for the Carbon-fiber look, though that is slowly being killed off by the Rusty Hood Trend (Wannabe Ratrodders)...

The most Headlight modding I'm into with my car are my Wig-Wags and occasionally playing with my funeral headlights, but eyes may look good on your car and they will certainly be fairly unique (I've never seen them on a FWB)

What colour is your FWB?

durrk johnson

My FWB is black, w/ dark window tint.

I think it would look great on my car, but then again, i dont want to burn any headlight sealant or anything like that.

Technically, you are just heating it to the point it gets soft and squishy then resealing it. The main focus (as pointed out in this video and on a Grand Marquis my Father once owned) is that you have to make sure that you realign it perfectly, meaning any denting done to the headlight housing must be straightened out before remounting the lens. All-in-all this seems to be a fairly simply mod, though I do not for the life of me understand why there isn't a DC version of this kit running on fiber optic that requires no inverter.

They look hideous however I would like to have LED DRLs in my ride in shape of bar just above park lamps or so

I really hate these new Camaros.

What ever happened to the Camaro being a Lady's car?

Even today, now that I think about it, I have never personally met anyone who OWNS one of these NEW Camaros that ISN'T a girl, but I know there are men out there who drive them. I sat in one once, felt really claustrophobic.

That and they're Fugly...and the Trans Am was always better, primarily for being a Pontiac.

I've always preferred the Chevelle over the Camaro, but even so, maybe it's just that being a Pennsylvanian, I will always be partial to Rat Rods and enormous Luxury Sedans and the occasional steam-powered engine.:bonkers:

Man, it seems like some of you guys on these forums lately have sand in your vaginas...

Well, I personally think they would make my car look super mean, and I like that...

I just dont know if Im ready to do this mod, as I dont think I would do it correctly nor am I sure about messing up my headlights. hahaha

Heres some pics of my ride.

I think it would look great but am not really sure like I said about the melting of the headlight housing and whatever ovens you speak of. hah. I would like to get some 17 inch sport rims like 96fleetwood had on his...

can you get them in a square design? I don't know if I would do circle.

You could fabricate a set fairly simply, but I suppose you would have to glue it to the inside of the light, as there isn't much to mount it on.

Your car looks good that way, but with all that crystal-clear airspace in the lights, if you want the lights to actually set the car off, you may actually want to paint everything in there that you don't need black, so the halos stand out, however, since most of what is on that piece of the headlight is reflector, I suspect it would effect your headlights' performance in at least a slight degree.

Idunno, I say convert to HID's and call it a day.

HEy whats up man?
HIDs would be sweet. How could I do that?

About the shocks... Luckily JIMthefleetwoodguy was able to hook me up with a piece to fix my air level and I havent got to getting to them because Im not sure where to go to get them installed. Another thing, my air level works now, but my right side is lower than my left in back leading me to believe that shock is dead.

HID's are easier to do than the angel eyes.

And cheaper.

And brighter.

And look more factory.

(I like HID's lol)

HID's?

I'd convert if I saw any positive to them, but we have these weird lamps to light the roads in Florida (Such a backwards country...) and I have never seen a set that is the same colour as my own lights, and why would I want lights in any other colour (Besides my seldom-used Funeral lights)

Still going to check out Sting's link...

Stingroo

HID's are nice because they're extra bright. They're a welcome appearance mod to almost any car.

Not sure what kit you would get though. Give 'em a call I would say.

Nah. I want to do an HID conversion myself. My headlights are stupidly dim, it borders on unsafe.

The-Dullahan

it borders on unsafe.

I don't know, I've been known to drive down a one-way road at night, in the wrong direction, with no streetlamps and all without my headlamps on, but that was just the one time and it was for a very noble cause.
