Good point, unfortunately this will require that the install and pictures be completed promptly. The reason for the free stuff is the pictures.

I think these headlights are about $300 a set!

Can they be sent to Canada? I would have the pictures back the next day in my restored G, or the one in pieces but i don't thing that's what they want.

I think they should go in daily driver cars for some valuable real world testing. ;)

BTW, I think electronic ignition is pointless.

My 68 is stored in a under ground parking garage. Could get some shots of how these lights work down there. Also is it just for the low beams or both low and high beams.
Thanks Scott

I want to throw my hat into the ring to do the conversion on my 67.

They say the stars at night are big a bright down here, but I can't see crap if I'm driving the Cougar after dark.

Are there any requirements for the car besides year? As in overall condition etc. How wide of a shot are they looking for? For example my car has all the paint work and trim done but roller wheels and tires along with no glass in the car. I could get a great front end shot with the head lights but if the wheels and tires or glass
Is going to show I’m sure they wouldn’t want those!

I’m down to participate but don’t want to take away anyone else chance that a completed car that might be a better candidate

I'd like to throw my hat in the ring for my '69. I've already got the relay kit, a great DSLR, and am local to NPD near Detroit so I can take pics in their lot!

I have been thinking about doing an LED headlight upgrade (to add to the complete set of LEDs everywhere else) on my 68 XR-7 fun driver car I built, so this intrigues me.
I would be interested in being entered in the 67-68 draw.
