Dingy headlights suck!
How many Fox bodies have you seen driving around with dingy, yellow sometimes cracked headlights? Unless your Mustang has been sheltered its whole life in a dark, air tight container you have almost certainly experienced the dreaded yellow headlights. It's amazing how something as insignificant as a dull headlight can ruin your Mustang's overall appeal. And considering how easy and inexpensive it is to install a new set of headlights, side markers and park lamps it's funny how many people overlook this seemingly small detail.
Big power, dull lights
More often than not people want their Mustang to go FAST! Understandably so... After all, it is what they were designed to do. But eventually you need to pay attention to the aesthetics of your Mustang. I'm not saying that you need to install a wing and a body kit, but if your Mustang has 400 horsepower and runs 12's while still sporting dingy headlights it may be time to invest at least a little bit on your Mustang's outer appearance. If you are guilty of this you have come to the right place. A new headlight kit for your Mustang is the PERFECT place to start your exterior restoration!
Not only does it look shabby running around town with faded and dingy headlights but it's also a safety hazard. You would be amazed how big of a difference a new head light kit will make in the night time visibility department! Imagine you are cruising down a country road late a night with a set of worn out headlights when a deer jumps out in front on you; wouldn't you rather be equipped with a brand new shiny set of headlights and sidemarkers from Latemodel Restoration Supply?
1 year warranty on all of the lights we sell
Although the manufacturer does not always warranty their products, we do! If you consider buying lights from Latemodel Restoration Supply you can be assured that we will stand behind them! We only use the best possible manufacturers when selecting our products. We have heard of other companies telling their customers to bake their lights in an oven or run silicone around the seams to fix or prevent leak issues. Not here! If for some reason there is a defective light assembly we will simply replace it, no questions asked, for 1 year from the date of purchase. Not only do we like to offer our customers the best value, we back it up with the best service!
Ultra Clear Lens Design
These lenses are crystal clear and offer a much updated appearance over the OE style headlights and foglights. They allow for improved light transfer, while maintaining factory lines.
Amber Sidemarker Reflectors
Sidemarkers are the outermost lamp of the 87-93 Mustang's signature 3 lamp design. From the factory your Mustang was equipped with amber side markers similar to the ones this kit. Although it may seem strange it is not the sidemarker that blinks when you turn on your Mustang's blinker, that is the job of the parklamp.
The park lamp is the inner most lamp on the 87-93 Mustang headlight cluster. Although neutral in color, the parklamp houses an orange bulb (not included) that blinks as the Mustang's turn signal. This kit includes 2 replacement park lamps just like the originals.
Our 6 piece ultra clear headlamp and fog lamp kit for the 1987-93 Mustang is of the highest quality offering a long lasting finish.
Replace those stock faded headlights with a set of our ultra clear headlights. They give your Fox Body Mustang a much more modern look all while improving your viability at night! Best of all the are DOT approve! Installation is super easy. Check out our headlight install video here - http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/products/Fox-Mustang-Headlight-Install-Six-Piece-Kit

JEFF: Hi, I'm Jeff, and I've brought J-Mac with me today to show you how to install six-piece headlights on your '87 to '93 Fox Mustang. Now, J-Mac, we've got the economy headlight kit in front of us. Can you tell me a little bit more about it?
JONATHAN: Sure thing, Jeff. This is our 5.0Resto brand six-piece economy headlight kit. Now, don't let the word economy fool you, because these are premium quality direct replacements for your Mustang. Now, six pieces because it includes the side markers, headlights, park lights for both sides. And the side markers are available with either amber reflector or clear reflector.
We also have deluxe kits available where the headlights include the seals, backing plates, bulbs, and bulb retainers. Now, if you need any of those parts individually, we've got the retaining clips, backing plates, bulbs, bulb retainers, retaining nuts, bulb sockets, I mean anything that you could possibly need for your Fox headlight project.
JEFF: All right. Now, if factory headlights aren't your thing, make sure you check out our website. We've got more options on there. We've got anything from your ultra clear, your smoked, or your one-piece headlight kits.
JONATHAN: No matter what you choose, they're all covered with our no hassle warranty. Check out LatemodelRestoration.com for more details.
JEFF: All right. Sounds like we've talked enough about these products. Jonathan, how about you show them how to install it?
JONATHAN: That I can do. We've already installed the driver side lights, just to illustrate the difference between a new set and a faded old set. This passenger side here is completely yellowed, faded, cracked, not letting much light transfer through. Fact is, these are so sunbaked that this side marker used to be amber. Now it's completely faded away.
To remove your old headlights, you've got two nuts on the back of your park light, you've got three nuts on the back of your headlight, and you've got two nuts on the back of your side marker.
First things first, you want to go ahead and undo all of your bulb sockets, get those out of the way, then grab yourself an 11 millimeter wrench. A ratchet wrench is going to be your best friend, but a regular wrench will get the job done. And you can even fit a socket on some of these things. I'm going to go ahead and get these lights out and on the table, and then we're going to show you how to transfer your seals and backing plates onto your new headlight lens.
Now that you've got your headlights out the way, we'll talk about transferring your seals, backing plates, and bulbs over to your new headlight lens. Now, your seal is held on with just two metal clips on the side. Can easily disengage those, lift the seal out of the way. Then you can remove your bulb retainer and your bulb. Then grab you a small flat-blade screwdriver, and you can remove the three clips that hold the backing plate to the old lens.
These can kind of be a pain to get off. Just stick with it and they'll eventually break loose. Once you get your clips free, you can simply remove your backing plate and transfer it over to your new lens.
Now, you want to be sure that each head of the screw is engaged fully into the lens. That way your clips will actually retain it. May take a little bit of pressure to get it fully seated in the hole, but don't be afraid to apply that little extra oomph. Now you can grab your clips, start popping them back into place. A little bit of finger pressure will get them right on.
Then we can go ahead and put in our bulb and bulb retainer, and we're ready for the seal. Now, if your seals are in bad shape, like we said we have brand new ones, but this one's still in reasonable condition. A little bit of interior cleaner and conditioner, we'll go ahead and get that looking new again.
And you can simply slide it back into place and engage your metal clips on the side. And we're ready to go back together. We'll go ahead and get these new lights slid into place, and we'll show you the finished product when we're done.
All right. When going back together, you want to start out with your headlight, follow up with you park light, and finish up with your side marker. Tighten up all your nuts, and then reinstall your bulb sockets. Go ahead and turn your lights on to make sure that everything is still working properly.
Now, for a little bit of time and not a whole lot of money, you can greatly improve the exterior appearance of your Mustang while increasing nighttime driving safety. Now, just because we're done with the physical part of this install doesn't mean we're completely finished. Check out LatemodelRestoration.com for our headlight adjusting video that gives you step-by-step instructions.
SPEAKER: If you own an '87 to '93 Mustang GT or a '93 Cobra, it's likely that you have had, or currently have, the problem of a broken fog light. Now, these fog lights, they catch road debris or rocks, and the lens breaks, and then you lose your light. Just doesn't look good going down the road. Now, we've got covered with brand new replacement 5.0 Resto fog light lenses that have the correct glass lens, has the new nuts, the new mounting stud, and new mounting bracket, and even features the correct factory electrical connector for plug and play installation.
Now, to remove your old one if it's broken, you want to put on a glove, because that glass is sharp and you may cut yourself. Now, the factory nut is a 9/16. Go ahead and remove that nut. Then you can unplug your electrical connector, grab hold of the light, and pull it out through the front of the bumper cover.
Now, the new nut on the new fog light is actually a different size. You want to grab you a 17 millimeter. To reinstall, you want to make sure that the bracket stays on the stud. Then go ahead and feed the electrical connector through the oval hole in the fog light bracket. Then go ahead and slide your fog light into place, and get the stud lined up in its hole, making sure that adjustment bracket stays in position.
Now you can go ahead and slide your nut on. Just kind of run it down by hand, and position the light as close as you think you can get it, and then tighten up the nut. All right. Tighten that nut down, and go ahead and plug your electrical connector back in.
All right. And then take a look at your finished product, and as long as everything is centered up then you're done.

JONATHAN MCDONALD: So you've replaced the headlights in your Mustang, and your first time out driving at night reveals that they really don't light up the road at all. It's definitely not a light transmission problem. It's all about the adjustment, or lack thereof. Just because your new headlight's bolted right in, doesn't mean you're done with the install. If you own an '87 to '93, '94 to '98, or '99 to '04 Mustang, we're going to show you how to stage your car up for the adjustment procedure, what you're going to need, where the adjusters are, and what they do.
First and foremost, what you're going to want to do is find you a place that's going to be as dark as possible, flat level ground. Move your car all the way up against that wall or door as close as you can get it without touching. Turn your headlights on.
Grab you some blue painter's tape or something equivalent. Any type of masking tape will work. Make you a horizontal tape line across each one of the light beams and make you a vertical tape line across the center of each one of the light beams. Now move your car back 25 feet.
Now a handy tool to have in your arsenal is this headlight adjusting wrench. It'll work on '87 to '98. On an '87 to '93, here's where your horizontal adjuster is and here's where your vertical adjuster is. Go ahead and use your tool to either move the adjuster in or out, depending on where the beam is pointing at. And you want that beam to land, final adjustment, where the beam is just down and to the right of where your tape lines intersect.
On a '94 to '98 Mustang, remove your radiator cover so you can have full access to your inside adjusters. Here's your horizontal adjuster and here's your vertical adjuster. Adjustment process is the same as it was on the Fox body.
On a '99 to '04 car, man, they made it a whole lot easier. It is super simple to adjust these headlights. All you need is a Phillips' head screwdriver. Here's your horizontal adjuster and here's your vertical adjuster.
Go drive your Mustang and enjoy the clarity of having properly adjusted headlights. Go on over to latemodelrestoration.com and check out more Mustang lighting solutions.

I could not drive my car at night before buying this kit, adding the led bulbs to my order with this kit has increased visibility from 1 foot in front of my vehicle to a 90 degree 30 foot radius.
