Looking to change my headlights to something else. Led or halogen. Is the Thing headlight seven inch? Would rewriting be required? Mighty obliged [/s]

They are just the standard PAR56 highlight that was used on all cars with a two headlight system.

Back in the day when replacements only cost $1 apiece, I just used to replace them every two years to keep them nice a bright. Today with replacements costing many times that, going with an LED seems like a decent alternative.

Hella H4 housings and you can get the brightest bulb you want.

I had some eBay special LED projector housings and they were amazing, look a little funny but really help aiming the light. After a while I slapped some HID bulbs in and they were bright as hell. I wouldn't go with the LED kits you see on here, they're just repackaged Chinese bulbs that aren't the greatest.

One thing to remember is that if you plan to run higher current lighting is that it would be better to control it through a relay.
