      do you think they had to do any cuting or anything. wish it still had an oem bumper or euro bumper to get a good visual if i want to do it

      I bet you could mock up some round sealed beam lights and cut up a grill and do it, I just dont have the time/money, otherwise.... i might try it

      has anyone done that in real life? I was just thinking about it and wouldn't the frame rail get in the way?

      odd you chose mk2s, and not the ten billion other cars with round headlights.

      I said Mk2's because, a lot of people do the "single round conversion" on Mk2 Jetta's.

      This needs to be done far more tastefully and I think it would look great.

      out of all the pics on this thread... this one looks the best.. i would do that... not the onther ones tho... sexy
      except the the headlights need to be aligned.. it looks goofy... the way its fitted looks equivalent to a person with a lazy eye
      was there also a a rat-style mk3 that had single rounds? but with a grill the fits over the light?

      Im gonna attempt this as I have an extra busted mk3 Jetta and Golf grille laying around and 3 mk2 quad round grilles.
      And I have the mk2 lights and Im going to see if I can get them to match up somhow on the mk3 core support to drill new holes to attach them with.
      Ill have to cut the grilles apart to get the slats but Im going to try and make a decent looking one.
      I personally liked the first one the best.
      Its got a Golf lower piece from a mk3 and it looks like the mk3 golf grille was extended and then mated and fused to ABT headlights...

      hmmm. i have a set of votex rounds, that i could cut up to make such a thing...

    22. 03-26-2009 10:50 AM #47
      Thanks for the help guys. Once I find gainful employment again, I might have to give this a shot. I do like the first one a lot, and the Jazz Blue one could look sharp if the headlights were straightened just a bit.
      Maybe I will draw inspiration from our Bavarian Brethren...

      would be sweet though.

      It doesn't look too difficult to make though. Set of dual rounds, a few grills and plastic weld away! I think it looks pretty sweet too. If I had the parts, I'd give it a shot [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
