    You get a good price? Is there any major frame damage?

    Skip the body kit and get her back to stock looking, then go from there. I will gladly take those headlights off your hands if you want to sell them!

    You may have a hard time coming up with another headlight shroud, unless it's just not pictured. Morette stopped making them a while ago.

    I agree, get it running with the stock stuff, then upgrade.

    Yeah I know. I would retrofit the proejctor assemblies into the factory bugeye housings. For the right price, it would be a nice way to get nearly all retrofit parts at once.

    Sad the kid did installed those and obviously didn't know way they were doing. Did you check to see if they changed the fuel injectors? A way to tell is the oem ones were like turquoise.

    How far are you from running and having the exterior done?
