After reading all the info on the stacked headlights, I have a question that I was wondering if anyone has an answer for. I have a complete front header and bumper that I want to make into a wall hanging. I have the whole wiring harness back to the firewall. my problem is that I want to covert it to 110 volt house current. Every power source converter I have tried is not powerful enough to run all 4 headlights and the parking lights in the bumper. Any ideas?

Rather than go they the expense of getting the proper inverter, you could just use incandescent bulbs, ones for a chandelier. And make your own harness with socket ends that accept the hose hold bulbs. Trying to light up the existing 12 v headlights would be too bright and give off some heat if lit for long periods of time. I'm not sure, what would happen if you plugged a 12v headlight bulb into the wall, it would light up just wouldn't be bright....which could also be okay then... Or it would just blow out...

you should try led bulbs!!! they require a lot less current.

That's the look I like also, and that's a very clean look, but too late in the game to do it now. Maybe down the road I'll come across the stuff to switch mine.
