Very intriguing that you would ask this question, most people who are interested in converting the headlights look into the Re-Amemiya FC2000 headlight conversion or a clone of that bumper type, it gives room to upgrade the rx7 factory headlights to projectors. I'm personally completing this conversion on my fc right now, and I'm going to use hella bulbs for the replacement headlights with custom mounting brackets. www.rallylights.com sells some suitable replacements for this. The other option is to switch out to Chaser aerokits carbon fc hadlight buckets that replace the factory flips.

There is a vendor making replica East Bear conversions & there was another set by SuperMade along with some crappy Ebay shit. Also the above stated FC2000 front nose/ light set ups & a few similar to it.

R Magic does something similar to the FC2000 kit it doesn't look as good though

FC2000 front bumper.


Originally made by RE Amemiya, but I think Shine Auto makes a replica.

The stationary headlight conversion bumpers have been available for YEARS. It just takes some research and coin.

Personally I ended up with the FC2K bumper from shine. The original RE-Amemiya version is equal quality, but Shine's material is stronger....

^ The East Bear reps look better & I think the price was better. Don't quote me on the price. Those remind me of the Supermade lights I posted above.

They were cheaper, I grabbed a set of the Eastbear reps, I believe they were $350.00 in the group buy.

Default What to do with the headlight motors wires when doing conversion

I am doing the head light conversion on an 86 RX7. And wanted to know what to do with the headlight motors and wires. The simple thing would be to remove them but they are wired into the harness. Not sure to cut and cap the wires and if that would cause electrical problems?
