I need some advice. Here is an old pic of my Beretta. My goal is to swap out the factory headlights and grille, and replace the headlights with the "87 Chevy Camaro headlights.

Your pictures are not showing up. Camaro lights may be a little big but I'm sure its possible to make them fit.

That is nice. The guy i bought mine from decided to put on the lifted hood with pins and it's not bad, but everyone hates it. But i figure if i can go to Pull-Apart and get the housing for it and the 4 lights, it would look allot more sharp; more like like a Camaro. Hopefully it isn't too much

I belive the headlights in both photos are the euro style beretta headlights. I could be wrong. Thats what you should look for, but they are hard to find, and most likely quite expensive if you do find them.

3gen are too big and 4gen are too small that i know, you need the housing from some van or something that i remember.

The right size headlights would be on a sunbird, 88-89 C/K truck and some G vans too...

The buyers guide for the 4701/4703 combo is on...

Im glad he didnt have the side skirts on that car...

they are in my back room now waiting for brackets to go on my 88. dropped them off at my house seems like a nice guy, he went and looked at my friends gf's beretta. 95 i think. z26 with a base front bumper... Z wheels new rubber... Rockers are rotted out at the bottom of the door pillars. pretty rusty under the back bumper rear frame is getting pretty rusted, and she wants 2,000 for it and wont budge cuz it was her dads and she thinks its worth millions.

My $500 Z is 10 times better shape. and hers was filthy inside and out. wasnt very pretty. could be fixed up.

Matt ended up getting a 84 or something volvo
