ConeDriver,

I appreciate the response and feel similar about blinding oncoming vehicles with bright lights.

During my restoration, I installed relays, heavier gauge wires and a direct feed from the alternator to the headlights to get the max current to the lights.
The appeal of LED headlights to me, is the reduced current draw and the brighter whiter light. Lots of deer in my part of the country so great lighting while driving at night is an absolute requirement. One deer collision would total my Spider.

Prices for drop in 7" LED headlights are all over the map. Summit Racing has them from $50 a light to $200/light. I know there are other sources and that some products are better than others. Just wondering if anyone else has been down this rabbit hole and how you navigated.
