    My son got me some H4 conversion housings for my birthday. I've had these on my eBay watch list for about the last ten years, lol. He must have got tired of hearing me complain about the lighting.

    They came with bulbs but I may order some different ones to see what I like best.

    Not much to comment on as to your project, but I do see you are a close neighbor! You're in Fairborn, my cars are in Huber/Riverside and I live up in Tipp!

    Awesome! Great to have somebody so close. I move pretty often and it seems I always end up in the places with no other members close by.

    My car is all about weight reduction but this grille is nice!

    Out of curiosity, is it the metal grill or the plastic one?

    Yep, it's metal. The original on my 86 is plastic.

    Edit, clarification: The grille pictured is the metal one.

    Your boy mentioned his TurboCoupe. He has an '87?

    If he wants to install the Ranger cam/followers, I left them in the truck I took my parts out of. He also mentioned wanting to port an E6. Send me a PM and we can talk.
