Looking at upgrading the old sealed beam headlights on my 49.
LED, HID, what ever.
Since I will be rewiring the whole car and front end is currently blown apart with the headlight buckets out it seems like an opportune time for an upgrade.
Im sure some of you have done similar and thought I would ask here and see what you used and get your feedback on the pros and cons of the various systems.
My current headlight buckets are in good shape(well once I clean them up) Some of the adjustment hardware is missing like springs and screws but thats no biggie.
Would like to keep the stock Hudson chrome headlight rings.
Being from New Zealand im Right Hand Drive but once I know what im after better I will be able to track down the RHD versions of any LHD/American options given.
I have not checked but im guessing Hudson headlights are pretty standard in the sizing the same as most main auto brands of the time. No odd Hudson only ways to mount or anything nasty?
Sure others here now and the future will be interested as well.
Anyone car restore a car. Takes a real man to cut it up.
