7" Round Headlight - DRL Style for Kit Car - RHDPart number: HL873
Crystal Halogen DRL style Headlamp Conversion kit
RHD ( UK / Japan etc )
to fit a Kit car
Upgrade the headlights in your kit car to these new Crystal Halogen LED DRL ( Daytime Running Light ) headlights.
These headlights are the latest evolution of the round 7" headlight to hit the market.
All new cars need to have DRL's fitted and so it is becoming a popular upgrade on older cars.
These headlights have been specially made for us here at Powerful UK and have a RHD ( Right Hand Drive ) beam pattern that will pass a UK MOT.
Even if the LED DRL is not your thing these lights have a superb light output on dip and main beam thanks to the beam pattern being set by the reflector not by the lens (as on standard headlights)
The LED DRL now comes with a T10 emulator for a quick & easy fitment.
The lens is smooth giving a cleaner sharper appearance to the lights.
The lens is made from scratch resistant polycarbonate and is ideal for track day use as its is lighter than glass and will not crack.
These lights give up to 25% more light output than standard headlights even using the same bulb !
ALL new cars use this new technology for the headlights and this is one major reason modern cars have much better lights
In addition to the better technology the reflector on these lights are made from plastic and so will not rust or corrode like the older metal ones.
These lights use Halogen H4 bulbs ( not included ) which you should have in your old lights ( unless you have sealed be units fitted )
These lights are not E Marked but are RHD MOT passing lights. ( you cannot have these lights fitted for the SVA test ) - we now have a LHD / US specification version of this lamp - see our other items.
This listing is for a PAIR of headlights complete with 12xLED's and rubber caps for the bulb ( no main H4 headlight bulbs are included ).
We have run these lights with 90/100W H4 bulbs with no problems.
These lights will fit into Lucas metal bowls also Lucas and Wipac plastic bowls and most of the stand alone kit car headlights with 7" lights.
These lights are well packed and will arrive with quickly and safely - we have stock ready for dispatch.
You can link the LED power wires to the sidelight wire or link to an ignition source of you want them to come on with the ignition.
Special thanks to Matt for sending in these pictures of our lights fitted to his car !
