Did a headlight conversion on my Samurai

There was a local store here closing, and I could get anything in the store at cost. Seeing as how one of my stock headlights had condensation in it, I bought a headlight conversion for a Jeep CJ. I also bought some Eurolight H4 halogen bulbs. These bulbs have a purple tint to them, but the light is really white.
My total cost for headlights and bulbs was $66 something, and now I only have to replace bulbs, not the whole headlight.

You might want to consider running a relay harness like Painless makes. The new bulbs probably draw more and the harness will make them as bright as they can be.......

[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] There was only so much in the bank account.
Actually I was going to buy a Warn bumper too. (Also for a CJ7). Regular 390, 220 was cost. I thought about it overnight, and it was gone. The store is gone for good now though [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
I Also could have bought RCI seats for 35 and covers for 35.

Re: Did a headlight conversion on my Samurai

man too bad, that would have been a great way to make a profit from a little mark up. but still keeping it cheap. just a thought, but i understand the lack of funding - believe me. but at least you had enought to get you something cool out of it.

Re: Did a headlight conversion on my Samurai

Not to burst the bubble, but I hope that was 66 Canadian.

I bought the headlight conversions from JC whitney with a plain old H4 for 36.00.

No fancy bulbs, but I could have bought 90/130 bulbs for a little more. But that would burn the harness up.

Im guessing the lights you have are those DIAMOND style?

The ones I got are plain old H4. But they work great.
I have a harness laying around from my old Audi that fits the Sammy, but thats the last thing I am getting to, getting on the road is first.

But building your own harness is actually pretty easy.


So if anyone else is looking to do a conversion, but without the fancy lights, they can go on JC whitney.
