This might sound like an odd question but I've searched here and found nothing, google image searched and found nothing and I'm just wondering if anyone has done, seen, or even thought about doing a conversion using headlights from a K12 Nissan Micra.

The lines seem to match up alright (I think) but being that I've never seen anyone do it and never even heard anyone talk about it they either won't ever have a chance of fitting or they look ugly as all balls.

Please comment if you've ever thought about doing this, I'd love to hear your input.

Holycow batman. You sure have odd taste. But... Anything is possible with time and money. That being said, it would look as queer as a football bat.

I know anything is possible. I'm just curious, they've got an interesting shape but I can't imagine what they would look like in an sw20 and I can't for the life of me find any examples anywhere. There's probably a reason for that...

Yes the amount of effort to make that happen is not worth it in my option. Pretty much any modern head light on an old car never looks right.

If you really want to lose the pop up head lights, you can go with what some other people done, they used 300zx headlights or flush lights from the old corvette guys used to do. Still it's just time and money for just a look. If it where me I'll use that money for performance upgrades or track time. Then again some people are all about show and no go.

That's a fair point, I'm just after something unique. I do like the look of the Celica conversion, especially with the Border front bar but I admit it can look a bit over the top. I also don't mind the Fiat Coupe conversion but that's a little harder to hook up. I haven't actually seen the 300zx conversion, is that on the sw20?

The look of the mod is a personal thing, you do save weight (because Racecar)and reduce potential maintenance. Also big drag reduction
when lights are on:)
