Am I correct in assuming that you are in the USA?  If so, you do not want
any lights from the UK.  They drive on the opposite side of the road there,
and the beam spread is wrong.  I bought mine from Shokkan, cot was about
$250 each.  You will also need the front grill from a '85 and up coupe or
4000, as well as the right and left upper and lower trim pieces.  I got the
trim pieces from Linda at Carlson, and the grill from a wrecking yard.
Total cost was closer to $600 than $800.  Good luck, the look is well worth it.
