  • Do the plastic headlight covers fit with euro ellipsoids?

    When I swapped out my headlights to euro ellips it looked at the time like the plastic covers (in the engine bay) wouldn't fit and I don't think I even tried. The looked so much thicker than stock...but now I want them. Are there different covers for sealed beam and ellips?

    Engine bay covers will fit just fine.
    FWIW, I'm using Bosch European Elips, without in-cabin adjusters.

    Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

      you're the man
      I think these will make the engine bay look much better. I used to think the opposite

        You'll also be impressed with how it will help keep your engine bay cleaner. That is, if you drive your car in the rain like me.

          I have mine off but I don't remember exactly why. I think the low beams are too deep for them to fit properly.
