Well, see, the 82, with the H4/H1's and plenty of "flash for revenge"
power in in pieces in the garage (swapping fenders, front bumper,
redoing light brackets... all prior to the big paint job!) and I'm
confined to the beater, an '85 with stock sandblasted lenses (and
wiring).  I do have some better lenses here and I'm gonna do a 9007
conversion with relays for a bit better light, but I haven't even
replaced the pass door handle on this car yet.
