914GT Headlamp Motor Removal

Approx. 20-25 years (yep!) there was an article in VW Porsche Magazine about how, in some racing 914GT, the headlight motors were removed for weight concerns BUT the car still had a manual strut-lifted, cable-retracted working headlight system. Does anyone still have that article or remember the "how to". I always thought it was very cool & saved 25 pounds or so. If it's been discussed I can't find the right "search" words to find it. I think the featured car also had a set of BIG driving lights mounted on the bumper & a strange two-toned (orange/white?) paint job split down the middle of the body (so in R/L side-view the car appeared to be a different color). Maybe a factory LeMans or Rally car? I can't remember for certain. Anybody out there as old as me?
