Let's start there... I don't mean to be cruel, but you might want to
familiarize yourself with how your headlights work first - the outer
lamps are Low/Hi and the inners are Hi only.  But anyway...

Crappy lenses, JC Witless and the like, are $20 each.  Hellas should be
about $30-40 - sorry I wish I could tell you a good cheap source for
them... I got my round ones at PUMA, but now I can replace them at a WMB
mail house that is local.  The Cibies are better than the Hellas, but
run about $80 each.

They drop right into your brackets, and all you have to do is wire them
right, using relays of course.  You're gonna love the results.  Spend
the $160-odd, you will *never* regret it.
