HID Head Light Conversion
« on: July 01, 2009, 05:58:18 PM »

Guys, I want to upgrade my lighting on the 68 Newport to HID.  Any ideas on how I should do this?  What size sealed beam is this?  I think the replacement light is an H5006 and an H5001.


 
Part numbers and where to buy would be good as I want to move forward with this.  I need brighter lighting!
 
Thanks for your help!

I did the Stern lights to Polaraco.  It's like daylight on high beams. 
 
I don't know if there are any HID's available or not!  He may have to get the CeeBee housings and buy the HID's spearately.
 
I did the HID's on my truck.  Stock housings and enormus inprovement in night time driving.  Doubles the distance.  But the Stern system is pretty close to the same.  It's a fairly easy conversion and the bulbs draw allot less.  Pure white

Steve, you install just regular H4 lights in your car?

Here in The Netherlands sealed beams are illegal so I have H4, I would really like to stress the necessity of putting in a relay system in a Mopar, as also found on Daniels website right here: http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/relays/relays.html
