AU XR headlight = 7in?

I was wondering if the AU XR headlights would be the right size to retrofit into the old 7in sealed beam headlight space on pre 1978 cars. Is it legal? would it be hideously expensive? I know you can get H4 replacements to do the same job but some look really dodgy. Thanks

They are only normall 7 inch lights as mentioned, except with different mounting points then the aftermarket h4 kits.

Personally id go with a good brand kit (such as hella) to retrofit into an older falcon. Make sure you put relays in for hi and low beam though!

Thanks, Botch. Ill have to sus it out some more. The relay thing is a good idea, those early style light switches are getting pretty expensive. :oo1:
