Should look awesome...but since you are doing the Mazda swap, why not use the newer headlights that are clear?


Also, you'll need new fenders, won't you?

well heres how it goes...

theres the 98-00 and the 01-03 which i different enough to mess things up...

to my knowedge (and proven in pictures) the 01+ mazda corner lights dont line up with the 01+ ranger corner lights, meaning I would need new fenders, but i dont want mazda fenders, i dont like the flare in them, but that only leaves welding work, but i cant weld, dont own one, and dont have any friends that own one....so scratch that idea

now 98-00 are alittle different, and i havent gotten a chance to really check them out to see how they work, but i believe they will either fit with my fenders or with little modding i can get them to fit...

more or less, im going to get the parts and see how they fit, and then go from there...if it requires grafting a mazda and ranger fender together, then my swap is going back on the backburner for awhile...

now, i dont know if the headlights i am getting a clear or not, mainly because they are the last 2 things I need...******* want to sell them for 100bucks each and i dont have that sort of dough, but i am going to the boneyard tomarrow and see what their price is...

I might be able to bleach them out or whatever people do to clean their headlights, that might help abit


Ok, done typing for now
