more on Celica lights

I had another post earlier about Celica Lights. I was planning on cross generationizing my '02 Celica with some older gen with flip out lights. But I thought about it and I think i'll leave the lights alone there... However; I have another idea on making them flip outward... not upward, just outward to turn on, then back in when off. Of course, I'm also going to be doing a lot of body work with the car, yet I want to keep the general Celica look. I'm looking if anyone knows how to electronically make this happen.

This is also posted on my other post: [color=purple][/color]
I'm thinking of hiding the lights shown on the car as is. I have an '02 considered for project. I want them to flip out. Like not flip up maybe, but I want them to flip outward and then fold in when closed. Keeping the lights but making them flip so I can hide them when not in use...

There ain't much to push for speed in Honolulu, there ain't much free roam, so I'm not too worried about the speed, that's what my Dart is for... grin

The older gen lights might have been interesting, but I think I change my mind about it. I just gotta figure out how to do it. Does anyone know how to do that kind of stuff? confused

man I seriously wouldn't bother messing with the celi lights, they are sweet as it is, and there's not a lot of room in there for extra gear to make them rotate... you will run the risk of turning your car really ugly if you mess with its face too much!

Plus there's the legality factor...
