Thanks Adrian, I'll take a look today , I've been looking at these lights that Simon suggested
F250 F350 F450 F550 Superduty 2005 2007 LED Halo Projector Headlight Chrome Ford | eBay
and have emailed the ebay suppliers three times now for more information on these lights , when i quizzed them about the RHD version of the lights i think they put me in the to hard basket this is what they sent back to me

Hello ,dear sir,

We're sorry, after checking, the item now is out of
stocks, sorry make you inconvenience,

And we've asked for the factory to
provide us new stocks before , but the stocks haven't arrived,

Thank
you

Yeah, looking at that text, I think they just copy/paste it for the ad. I'd be very surprised if they had a RHD version of their projectors, although it could be a possibility.

They do state that it will fit 04 thru 07 trucks, and if it fits an 05-07 truck, it won't fit an 04 (without the work I previously linked).

Yeah well the add on ebay says that they do LHD and RHD options , so i emailed again because they are still advertising the same lights , see what they come back with this time
My guess is they don't do RHD lights

I think Simon has 05 Harley lights in his truck but not sure if it's stock or if it's an 02-03 and has had the header panel cut out.

They do have the RHD versions, I emailed before quite a few times, worked out what I wanted, but didn't pull the trigger.
I already have US '05 lights installed on my truck - cut out the header panel.

Good point Brian, but you'd think if they run out of stock it would be taken off the ebay until stock was returned. huh

that are for a Right Hand Drive truck will you sell these to me , as i see

Welcome to the new world. You can sell stuff with minimal or no stock using a web-presence like eBay. This is totally normal these days.

An unscrupulous seller would merely let you order, take your money then make you wait 2 months before you received a shipment directly from the factory. These guys are being up-front. They're running a business so I'm sure they'll be making some contacts to get more stock.

Situation normal - hopefully you'll get an email from them within a couple of weeks. I wonder if they'd hurry up more if they had a few more RHD light orders!

It's good that they've run out of RHD stock - you're getting different emails than the ones I received when I exchanged emails working out my order, so they've actually sold out of their first shipment, albeit possibly 1 set of RHD lights.

Personally, I would just give them some time to fire up their suppliers. I sort of love their chinglish as well - you can see that they're really trying!

Yeah I'll wait a while and see what happens .

Yesterday i brought some 9007 halogen globes and fitted to the aero style light housings , well after having HID's for a couple of years , i think they are only two candle power, i quickly removed them and sat the HID's back in place.

I did adjust them so they are aiming low on low and will test them to night.

Actually, that is good to know!

If money stays tight with me I may opt to go down the bi-HID path and fit 9007 HIDs into my existing 2005 HD lights. My problem will remain though, the only way I can aim these lights is by putting washers behind the bottom mounting tabs.

Yeah that's probably a good option , haven't you got some angle adjusters on those lights (side to side and up and down)
