^^ tater (eric) of evan new orleans makes these (they cost over 2k i think though)...he's the only one in north america that makes these as far as i know. the only other projector headlights for the celica are jdm and will cost even more.

another option would be to get the headlight inserts that tater makes. they cost around $265 + shipping i beleive. i'll see if i can find a pic.

in the second pic (silver car--tony's) it's an INSERT. meaning that piece goes inside of your headlight.

in the 2nd pic (black car--eric's) it has the insert as well..but it also contains a top piece that is the actual 'projector headlight'. as you can see, it's another piece that goes on top of the headlight and works with the insert (which you obviously cannot see) thumbsup

tater is an ecelica member. you can send Tater a pm by clicking here ...eric's always on here so you should get a respeonse fairly quickly. thumbsup

and i do not beleive that his inserts are part of the brashboy kit. i beleive the picture of brashboys kit that has the inserts are the jdm inserts (not eval new orleans')...but they are very much identical thumbsup

sPeEd,
Thanks for trying to answer MARKT questions. The headlights on the Brashboy Celica are Hella units that were optional on the JDM Sports-M models. They use one 90mm HID low beam projector unit and one 90mm parabolic high beam unit.
The inserts that are in Tonys headlights are a replacement for the clear ribbed plastic trim that is in the stock headlight. Those are $275 in prime plus shipping. See this thread for more info: LINK
The dual projector headlight assemblies that I craft are completely scratch built utilizing two modified 75mm OEM Celica projectors for high and low beams. My headlights have a much lower profile compared to the Sports-M assemblies, which are very bold. The DP units are $1800 in prime or $2000 painted plus shipping. See some pics here: LINK

.. or you could save a shitload of money and just buy vinyl overlays from Blue Batmobile and get essentially the same look.

thta is true...to an extent.

andy's (bluebat's) overlays essentially follow the look of taters inserts (obviously vinyl overlays cannot be an actual 'projector headlight').

however, the inserts are of far greater quality and imo, have a better look to them. they're also only $275 plus shipping (sorry--i think i said $265 + shipping earlier).

andy's overlays are much cheaper (in the $20 dollar range i beleive) and are of good quality. but vinyl overlays (however good the quality) will last about 7 years. true that 7 years is probably longer than you keep your car anyway--so it's your choice.

anyway, with the insert...you can get resale for it--so when you do sell your car you can get back some of the $$ you spent thumbsup
