Flatnose Slopenose Fixed Light Conversion

Found this and thought some of you guys maybe interested.
Think you will agree its BAD ASS, thinking of doing it to my car but not sure if red would look as good!!

The lights are taken from a Fiat Coupe :





And now the good bit :

I have seen pictures of one other car done this way. I like it. I have a pair of nice slantnose fenders for sale that would be perfect for this.

Thanks for posting.

This Site can be very detrimental to the pocket book! Especially since I have a set of Slant fenders waiting to go on! I wonder if they cut around & mounted or just used the headlights?

I wonder how much cutting and fitting was involved. I really like that look but I can't see myself altering my Ruf fenders. I've been looking for some projector lights to fit. I think the lights for a 3rd gen Mazda Rx-7 would look pretty cool also. I saw these online.

I really like the look! Wondering if the angle of the slope on the fenders is the same, so the lights would be fully functional & adjustable.

He's a couple of good images of the Fiat Coupe headlights.
There is a definite lip around the headlights, so it would appear you cut a hole the correct size and push the headlight unit up into it from the bottom securing it in place with some fabbed up mounting points for the you can see around the units, doesn't look to be that harder job really. Just have to see if there adjustment for the lights levels etc to compensate for any difference in mounting angles.




Its either I do that or install a new front bumper 935 style same as below with its fixed headlights.....hummmmmmm

Yeah true, i've just got the 935 wing mirrors and a Kremer/DP extended wing, so I guess the 935 front would look the best and keep it more genuine looking to.

Those would be good candidates. Maybe I should hold on to my Slant fenders, complete with mazda motors, & get some like you have, without headlights.

Love that look! How much are the lights and where do you buy them?

We did one several years back on a friends Carrera widebody slantnose cab, it was similar to the above with the plexi-covered openings. Also added C2 bumpers and C2S 1/4 duct. It was a very nice car, although he did complain about it throwing less light on the road than the previous config with pop-up mazda headlights. I'll see if I can find any pics of that car to post.

The pop riveted slats look a little funky.
