WTB: "USED" Deutsch nine 944 GTS headlight conversion kit

Looking for a used Deutsch nine GTS headlight conversion kit. The new kits are just way too expensive, IMO. Please also post if you know of an affordable alternative. Thank-you

I bought the kit, not happy at all, sent it back for a refund. Other than the molded clear cover the rest of the kit wasn't worth $10 - you had to measure, cut, and glue tubes on the light buckets to mount. Use bolts and washers as spacers for the lamps and it still didn't fit worth a crap. If I ever decide to do this again I would just pick up the GT kit knowing it's going to take some fab work and save $300.

Really I thought the Deutsch nine kit was a 30 minute install after you removed all your old headlight stuff! It comes basically ready to bolt in and adjust to fit your 944 almost perfect right?

That is exactly what I was hoping for (and why I paid so damn much for it) but as you can tell this is a pretty sore subject for me as I took quite a loss on it. Unless it's changed dramatically It's a lot of pieces and parts with you doing cutting and gluing and it still didn't have a solid feel. I'm not opposed to fab work but for the price of this kit it's a joke. Hate to say it but D-9 is off my vendor list for good.
