Post Sleepy eyes
Hi to all! Anyone one here, have sleepy eyes headlight convert on thier trans am or firebird?.

The reason why I ask, is because, both of my motors are shots. Thinking of openning the headlight halfway and installing HID foglights in it.
I know it sounds to import, but what can I say....I'm filipino, that loves muscle cars. 8)

Are the headlights rebuildable like the 3rd gen ones? If so, that may be a better cost alternative.

The headlight motor only uses 180 degrees of the gear so unless somebody has already done the flip it only takes a few minutes to unbolt the linkage and then use the other 180 degrees of the gear. Or there is an option to buy a brass gear to replace the plastic one. Check out the link http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm

The thing is, both motor aren't making any noise.
No whinning, no grinding, no signs of life what's so ever.

Those headlights look like a$$ IMHO. Get some new motor or used ones. PM hybrid36 he's recently parted out to 4th gen birds you might be in luck and he still has a set in working condition. Even if they are in working shape and they grind you can try flipping the gear or buying new brass gears which i have installed into my dads 95'. I saved one motor by flipping the gear over but the other side was to chewed up so i had to resort to new brass gears. If your not a fan of how your lights look you might want to do a H4 housing retrofit like alot of people doing for a more modern look and you can install some HID's if you choose down the road aswell.
