my friends 93 240 is tricked out to do the sleepy eye look, it was really nothing to it. it took him less than four minutes, literally. In the 240 on the headlight switch, theirs a brown wire he cut. and now his lights are fully adjustable and able to set at any position he wants...

im pretty sure its much different for our cars though....

yea you can also leave the headlights on, and turn the power off while in teh middle of turning the lights off...so when the car is off the lights are in midposition and you could adjust them, then cut that brown wire, takes a bit of skill though

i have done this to my 91 supra before. first of all all flip light cars have knobs on them that you can manually adjust just incase one of your flip lights fails to flip. this knob can be found right by the light under the hood(inner side of the light). my knob has a rubber cap on it i am not sure about yours. before you start adjusting you need to disconnect a wire also right next to the light so that the lights will stay the way you want them and not flip up and down. this wire has a quick disconnect on it all you have to do is disconnect that and they will not flip up and down. the wire is pretty easy to find, its like the only wire by the light(on the inner side of the light). if you decide to do this in the wintertime i suggest covering each of the quick disconnect ends so nothing gets in there and ruins your connection. also i suggest using a ruler to get the correct measurement of how far each light is.

let me know if you have any more questions about this

just raise em so they are high enuf that you get some light(halfway?) i put mine back to normal so i forget. i have fog lights that are bright too so that makes up for it. just make sure they arent too low that you dont have any light and they arent "too sleepy". they will always be pointing lower than normal when you have sleepy eyes.


does that help?
