Totally agree. Now all that would be nice were some nice HID bulb units to go in there since no one is selling foggies at the moment. Did you find your panels and glass?

Nope. Going to drive about an hour out tomorrow for a chance they might have the glass. I decided to fix the fender myself though.

As for HID, I have those in the second pic. So much brighter than stock. Need to find a good set of foggies to complete the look.

I honk at other Celicas on the road.

I'll give a check in my local junkyards for you(I saw one last time).

What brand of bulb do you use for high beam flip-up lights? Man, foggies are all I want to complete the car! Well, that and a factory OEM GT spoiler.

No need, I can buy it online if I wanted it shipped. Looking for local so I dont have to wait as long.

For stock its one bulb, a 6x9. You replace the whole thing. With HID its an H4 HID bulb in a special glass housing with projectors.

I'll look into that for sure. The bulbs in my car aren't even the stock ones and light output from them is horrendous.

You can get knock offs of what I have on ebay for cheap as a whole kit.

For your 7th gen I would recommend Kensun on Amazon. Good quality and if anything goes wrong they will replace for free. Just make sure you aim your housing. 7th gens have some of the best projector headlights for halogens and work extremely well with HID.

I'll try to look for the real setup. I'm going to have to do the HID conversion 1st on my 7th gen as well. Either that or I will continue to hunt for some OEM HIDs

Oem are good but expensive. Aftermarket is cheaper and works with what you've got.

I prefer the "cleaner" look, although I may reinstall my non-HID OEM lights for now. I'm probably one of a smaller group of people who like the pre-facelift look better.

Prefacelift is much better.
