Here you go man, I've heard some terrible reviews on these though, I'd throw brass gears in there and be done with it, that is if you like the flip up style.

My opinion, dont waste 1000 dollares on this. i had them on this summer, now they going to be replaced with original flips with BLS upgraded lights. Poor quality, one side differs from the other- bad light output-during rain the whole lenses become all misty,very annoying.

The setup is really cheap. I bought a set used from a member on here a couple years ago and the actual light output was worse than the OE flip up lights were. It took a little bit of modification and fabrication to "correct" the failings of non-pop up designs.

Unless they were built between '67-'81

As the others have mentioned, they projector HID kit isn't known for it's quality. Make sure you really like the look before proceeding, because you'll probably get a lot of comments (whether you want them or not).
