nice man, I been doing headlight work for our Nissan Infiniti guys for a few years now, done about 40 sets of 350z, G35, 300zx, G37..etc.. headlights

I really enjoy it just like looks like you did as well, nice results by the way !

hey I just did a 300zx recently and the exterior lens was pure glass, like a salad bowl, is it the same thing with your Supra ??

Nice, did the same thing to my ek hatch when I had it.

is it possible to get euro spec headlights for the Supra and still be legal in Canada?

I love the nice clean glass headlights from the euro supras think it makes the car more striking

A glass lens wouldn't yellow/haze up like that.

G-spec,

40 sets, damn... that's a lot.

are the nissan headlights sealed together like mine were?

and yeah same thing with my Supra, but mine are actually plastic that's why I needed to have them cleaned from inside. I was attemping to do the 93 to 97/98 headlight conversion (black with chrome rings). The eurospec headlights are 800 for a set, and mine look fairly close now.

I will try to take some better pictures on a sunny day.
