Default purple high beam headlites

anyone know where i can get a pair of purple rectangular high beam lights for my Lincoln? It uses a 4 lamp system. I also need/want a "wig -wag" unit, but Im assuming I can order that through Galls or one of my towing supply catalogs.

I just received a set from that very same link, it took a bit of time with customs and all but I am simply delighted. I will try them on the road this week maybe......just for a drive and see if I get pulled over.

I would also like a wig wag device......if anyone can help.

You can get purple glass paint at any hobby or craft store, and paint your bulbs. If you don't like the results, you can clean it off with some brillo pads. The paint is under $5 and sometimes you can even find it in a spray can.

I used this on my 73 Lifeliner for the headlights. Real simple to hook up. Power in on "X", one line "L" to one headlight and "L" to the other headlight. You will need to ground them. Yuo can get at NAPA for about $23.

Don't forget to buy the connectors for the headlamps, so you don't have to butcher up your wire harness if you decide to put it back to original. They cost about $3 each and are a bargain compared to what a replacement wire harness costs...

Is that one you can turn on and off and still use the high beams like normal or is it one that only comes on when the high beams are on?

Only comes on using a seperate switch, no high beams. I have mine working off the switch panel inside the ambulance. Paul is right, buy a set of connectors so you do not butcher the wiring system on your car.
