911 headlights / lenses to -67 fenders, what parts fits and where to buy?

I'd like to put 911 H4 headlights or atleast 911 lenses to my -67 CSP fenders. What headlights fits and what parts are needed? Any great places to buy?

I have seen 911 headlight pairs from hella as cheap as 400€ from ebay.

I want clean look like this, these seem to have 911 headlight rings too:




I dont want beetle style headlight chrome rings like these


Here is few options:

Hi

I had to buy RHD drive ones from these people http://www.design911.com/

911 headlights fit in any headlight bucket that a 6 volt Bettle headlight fits onto.

You have a few options, chrome ring 911 lights, or the later ones which have a paintable cover.

I prefer the 911 lights over early Beetle headlights as the 911 lights dont have the Herman Munster attcahing bolt.

Ok, i have now more info too. These should be okay and almost straight fit to -67 fenders, just need to weld small bracket for bottom screw to the bucket.

I think there is sort of oem headlights for sale and these marelli / bosch versions. Later ones are usually 430-500€ / pair.

Here these are much more expensive, dont know if the brand is same:

Yeah, 911 looks better without that visible bolt attachment like on -67 beetle style headlights.

I do not understand why, but i never see one bug with H5 90 years, normally only H4 early. Its nice, maybe do not fit in bug?

Dont know the advantages of H5 instead of H4..

But i think these porsche headlights are ok for northern summer use, we have much more light at summer months than southern europeans

But to be safe, i'll put Osram nightbreaker / Philips xtreme vision etc bright bulbs .
