Default Re: Effigy's history

Got a few things lined up in the "waiting-for-money-so-so-I-can-do" list..

Need about $450 for a quad-channel digital pyrometer and 4 leads so I will know the temp of each cylinder at all times..

Need another couple hundred dollars to buy an LM-2 kit so I can really dial in my Webers and make use of the O2 bung on my sidewinder..

and I'm also looking at upgrading my headlights..

I think I'm gonna do the headlights first, was wondering if anyone had experience with the following stuff:

These are the buckets I'm using:

Right now I just have standard H4 headlights in them, I want to buy some H4 glass enclosure things (that require changeable bulbs instead of what I have now, when it burns out you replace the entire assembly..) and put these in:

I'm thinking the 5000k ones.

Anyone wire HIDs into their rides? It looks easy enough. It's been a looong time since I've messed with my headlights though, so I can't remember how much space is in those bucket, I'm wondering if they can even accommodate the different style of headlight. I know they are still H4 sized, but I don't know about the backspacing..
