Want your 2 to stand out ? 10 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 213
Check out these Flushmount lights. Fully adjustable with projector headlights !!

This guy made them himself and check the thread below to see the work out into them. He made his own Border bonnet as well - quite the MacGyver !

I've asked him if he can give a price for a group buy - will revert with prices.

Lots more pics in the thread

I dont like those flush light, they just dont suit the car. It almost makes the front look a little like the old Nissan Fairlady

I would go for the rogue rev 6 quads instead. A little pricing but looks the business up or down

I know what you are saying - but if you look at other flushmounts which are similar, I think they can look good. I think it depends on what colour your 2 is and also the colour of the inside of the flushmount housing. I like the below (without the blue halo/ring)

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

If I was going for low-rise, I would be in two minds - either Rogue or maybe leaning toward keeping single rectangular light but smaller 4" x 6".

Aaaaaaaggghhhh - I was set on the flushmounts, now I am back to 3 choices
1) flushmounts
2) Rogue quad lights
3) DIY low-rise with rectangular smaller 4" x 6" (below)

spidey! dont sway from the cause! flush mounts are AWESOME. i will hopefully be going for the flush mounts if he decides to produce them.

as for the clear toblerons, they look pretty cool. so you actually only get the clear lens part? and not the whole piece?

Yeah you just get the clear lens and you've to smash off the orange one to replace it.

Those low rise (non rogue) headlights look very nice. What car are those lights off?

Re:Want your 2 to stand out ? 10 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 217
My choices would be:

Rogue quads
low rise rectangulars
standard

My personal taste would be to avoid the flushies ... just dont look right on the car and make it a little dated.

Have to agree with spanky, but flush do look good when done exceptionally well, but i wouldnt go for them myself, It just wouldnt be my idea of an mr2, its like tearing off your eyelids, yes your eyes will look nice and big but you just dont look right

I'm torn !

I know what you mean about the Flushmounts looking dated - but I think thats
where the projectors and having the silver housing bring it bang up to date.

It really does depend on the rest of the car, as to whether it pulls it off.

My sensible side is telling me to go with the LRR's because I only paid £25
for the GTO lights And after having made them myself, I'm bound to like them !!

Just on the Rogue lights - they came back and said they coudln't discount on the lights themselves. But postage would be the same for 3 sets as 1.

So, lights are $388. And postage to Dublin is £17.50 + VAT for 3 sets (or 1). Postage up North is £22.50 + VAT ?????

Anywhoooo, I think I'll keep at my LRR's. Worst case, if I go flushmount, I'll sell my LRR's on.

Spanky you are dead right mate. Half of the appeal for me with the Mr2 is the pop up lights. Taking them out is just nutz in my book. If you want a fairlady buy a fairlady. You can over mod an Mr2 and then its not an Mr2. I am a fan of the Mr2, all I want to two is update the technology, quality, look and feel of certain componants, I do not want to transform it into something its not. For me, it will always be pops, sure I think the standard ones come up too high, but that just means, Rogue quads or custom low-rise, hell, even a sleepy eye kit, had one in my last two and it looked savage!

Very interesting approach !

I can't see all pics here in work. So, will have to watch this thread - very interested in finding out how they stop them from "flapping", as they call it...
