  • Looking for sealed beam 5 3/4 halogen retro with no-convex/flat but curbed glass

    As in the topic, im looking for set of halogen retros. lamps will be mounted on Jag XJS so i need classic look without halos etc.
    I want one pair run on halogens, other pair with retrofitted bi-leds. Thats why i want flat(ish) not convex glass - easier to sand off curbs in the center for light from projector lens.

    Unfortunately, so far found only either convex hellas H4 retros etc, or clear glass "tuning" retrofits

    Why do you want to drill though the front glass? You can get 5.75" round headlights with smooth front lens so you don't need to sand off flutes.

        There are ones with clear front lens. So you don't need to do any grinding of the lens.

        What year XJS?

          1982 XJS - us spec
          I know there are full clear lens retrofits, but it need to look stock - outer 5,75 sealed beams will be retrofited with H4 retro, inner ones too but with bi-led projector inside. Original Wagner SealedBeams are too convex to grind.
