Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Best thing to do for those flip ups is get the conversion bulb housings so you can put the hella xenon bulbs in. If you really hate flip ups that much, sell it and get a 92 =)
www.racingbeat.com) they might be able to help you out. They do pop-up conversions for RX's and headlight swaps for RX's and Miatas. Not our cars, but they have lots of expirience with headlight work.
1) build a containment area for the headlight so that it follows the lines of the hood.
2) now this is the hard part. find some type of plastic coveringwhich would conform to the surface of the light (like the RX-7).
i also wonder if it would be easier to just modify the RX-7 kit. i just don't know how big those lights are though. any other ideas, how you like mine?
Also, I don't think that this is 2.0 Turbo Performance.

-Take off the passenger kick panel (1 screw, 1 plastic lock pin)
-Reach up and pull down mess of wires and plastic connectors.
-Look for a little white plastic square about the size of a, umm, chiclet? Theres 3 wires going into it. And theres only one connector that looks like this.
-A pair of needle nose pliers and a small screwdriver are what I used. Just pry the fuse looking thing out of the middle. Its also white and has 3 copper prongs on it. when you get it out, id put it somewhere where u can find it later, in case u sell the car.
Auto popup is now disabled, and the light shines through the front lenses. This is how my car is set up, and i figured out that high beams when the headlights are down are just as bright as low beams when they are popped up. (I drive with the high beams on all the time, basically.) Now, you can pop the headlights up and down with the popup switch if u want them up.
This switch doesnt work when the headlights are on, however. With it set up like this, you can push the button in while the headlights are on, and just turn the headlights off and back on real quick, and catch the lights midway. Makes your car look "sleepy". hehe. It will look like this after u are done: http://www.dsmtuners.com/cgi-bin/gallery/index.pl?photo=2813
As for your corner lights, clear corners for 1G DSMs are free, if you feel like taking a few minutes to pull the orange lens out of your old ones. I made a page telling how to do that here...it's easier than you think: http://www.sounddomain.com/member_pages/view_page.pl?page_id=155904&page=6
Lemme know if that helps u or not.
The fuse mod only lets you have the lights on with the unit down.
So the chicklet is better, but a little harder. The only trouble i had was taking that damn fuse thing out of the chicklet-like piece.
And let all of you know.....the kick panel sparrow was talking about...is on the right... heh, i took the one on the left off and was confused to see there was no "mess of wires". I got it right though....
Chiclet Mod...what name will they think up next?
i'm just going to hook up a wire to the headlight pop-up switch, that seems to be the best thing. that way, i can open them from inside with the lights off... and with them on, whoo!
anyone else try this mod and have the problem of the wire not being there??
I put some pics up for your viewing pleasure http://www.sounddomain.com/member_pages/view_page.pl?page_id=155904&page=10 of the infamous chiclet. I know the 89-90 years have the chiclet, u just gotta look a lil harder.
after the headlight mod using the chiclet thing...is it normal for the fog lights not to work?
