Those look like the Body Shop Hayashi flush lights. I recall seeing them for sell in the late 90's for some where around $2000. I think it was on the website hyperspeed.com which was a great place to see jdm miata stuff before the site disappeared.

As it was mentioned previously these are the Hayashi flush lights.
The only flush headlights that they really do work in the miata...
Very expensive and very clever designed!
They solved the low mounting issue by using the (stock IIRC) headlight motor they raise the upper end and aim the light beam to the road (and not the stars :))!

A little more than neat I think. :p Seriously cool and drool worthy. I just showed that pic to my wife all excited and she gave me the weird look. You all know the look.
I'm broke and single...therefore everything's expensive, out of my range, or (like the APR seat...) probably going to be sold because I didn't like it as much as I wish I did...

Ouch! Sorry to hear, bud. Keep that top down and the bad stuff will be over before you know it? That's what I've told myself in the past at least.
It's ok...I am the king of what I like to call "good idea at the time" mods...did you check the thread about exhausts? I've had a small collection of them ;)

Re: Hayashi cool reverse pop-up headlights

You guys seriously like those? I think they're ugly as ****...is something wrong with me, or y'all.....?
I've liked them since I first saw them 8 or 9 years ago.
Scott - you recall, that Joe had the last set of Hayashi leadlamps in existance at the old shop and in storage for a long time. I recall we looked at those units and got them from Japan in hopes to produce them here for a cheaper cost for our friends in Japan. It was very exciting to see these things in person and knowing that this was the last set from Hayashi himself.

I used to look at the buckets and mounting mechs every day and quite honestly, they were built rough. The buckets needed to be sanded and painted....the lamps were made by Kioto I believe (motorcycle lamps) - and the mounting mech was fairly basic in a way - using the same headlamp motors and small 90 degree swing arm.

Ssadly we gave our word that if we did not produce, we would send them back to Japan to Hayashi - which we did.

Just a small story for the history books :wink:
