So I had a set of H4's before I went to LED's. I used a PIAA H4 anti vibration motorcycle bulb in each light and let me tell ya......STUPID BRIGHT.... Actually that setup puts my Rennline LEDs to shame, just not the same at all. I will be on the lookout if there is anything with a sealed beam unit for you.

I am thinking about putting them back on the car actually.

Yes, catron1, those are like the ones I have. Still can use on sugar scoops.
I should probably post all the old g series parts I have sitting around.

So I bought the baggers headlights recommended. They called and offered me a no cost upgrade as the ones I ordered weren’t in stock. Wish I had asked if they had the same back dimensions. None the less, after some modification I have a new look on the sc. I like it.
