    Hey those look pretty cool! Kinda pricey though!:eek: I used the PIAA 510's behind my Satoshi Grill. I think they are 6" in diameter instead of your 7"s.

    Yeah I know. But my dad said go buy something that you really want instead of improvising..... Good point.


    I think he might help with this;)

    Do you want driving lights or fog lights?
    Those say they are driving lights - with a focused beam.

    Those are some swwet lights be sure to check the depth on them. IIRC someone had them behind the grille and ended up replacing them because of the depth.

    I always thought fogs had a wide beam, mount low and aim low - driving lights mount high (close to eye level) and have a focused beam.

    So... fogs for lighting road edges, mist, snow fog etc - and driving lights for illuminating far down the road for high-speed driving?

    Anyone? Am I wrong on this?

    There about 87mm I think its what it said... The specs are in the Hella catalog.
    Yes I did the Satoshi myself Finished last night. I will post some when its not raining;).

    I mean I can help you but I have very little experience with a 1st gen Satoshi. So it will be a learning curve for both of us. But yeah That would be awesome.

    No Danny You never PM me back......:p

    Its cool bud. Is it a piece of metal or something else?

    About a week. Just because I had to get more stuff than I thought I needed.

    I had to start completely from scratch... example: no Dremel, no bondo or fiberglass.... but I did have sandpaper!:D
