Default Want to go back to pop-up headlights

Hey guys, was wondering if anyone knows what all is needed to go back to pop-up headlights? I bought the car and the previous owner swapped in fixed ones. I've searched all over, and all I can find is how to swap to fixed headlights. I don't want to start buying parts, then get started and realize I'm missing components. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Contact Marc a Vettenuts.net and he can help you out. Probably won't be inexpensive as a lot of parts got $hit canned to do the fixed headlight stuff and maybe even some modifications that will need to be undone as well.

I'd also recommend you post your location and maybe set up a meet with someone in your area who has either changed out the pop up to fixed or has done a ACA HID headlight change over. They should be experienced enough to see what you have and what parts your going to need to make the change over back to pop ups. You might also check with local Corvette clubs in your area for some local help.

I have a complete set of pop up headlights available. I am in Southern California. I am asking $800 for the complete set. I'll post some pictures later of what I have.

Here are the pictures of what I have available. These are off of a 2004. The color is Magnetic Red II. What you see in the pictures is what you get.


Front both Drivers and Passenger


Rear Drivers and Passenger

The headlight control module is included. The only thing I do not have are the nuts and bolts that attach these to the frame and wheel well.


With a bit of creative packaging I can shipping for $100.

Thanks Gary, I'll keep you in mind. I'm going to look around locally first (I'm in the Greenville, SC area), maybe check out Hawkes Performance to see if they have any too.

John Llewellen in Knoxville should have a couple of complete sets.
