My Green Cortina was still fitted with its original sealed beam headlights. I have driven this car a couple of times at night now and to say that the headlights are dim is an understatement. The old joke about walking round the front of the car to see if the headlights on is quite accurate with this car.
Luckily, a friend of mine had some halogen conversion headlights that he had bought for another car, but never used. A price was discussed and a deal was done. I fitted them in my garage to my car before taking the car to work. What a difference! I can now see a lot further, so I'm very pleased with the result.
