Beverly hills cop
#1
Hi all was watching Beverly hills cop this evening and a dmc was present but it had different headlights so I was wondering if anyone had any idea as to what is being used for its headlights.
Best photo I could get of the car

Hi,

They are LUND headlight covers. The original lights sit underneath.

Thats a cool thing. It gives the car a stealthy or more futuristic look. Wonder what it looks like when lights are on.
Thanks for info tris I didnt know how to describe them other than covers but now I know a name might look them up

I think from the way this guy in the video is talking, you need to take the covers off if you expect to be able to see in the dark. So maybe just a daylight visual adjustment.

I guess you could have a similar set up but make them useable in the dark

Well each to their own - but not for me ... ... and pretty much impractical?

Those add-ons have kind of a period charm I guess - not for me personally the 'badical' look kind of works in an 80s context...

I like the front and rear covers. At least to look at on others cars.

Personally, I’ll be keeping mine stock Smile

This one looks really cool matt I see what you mean by "badical" with the skirts, spoiler and rear light covers. The spoiler dosent work as such but everyone has a different opinion on what works and what dosent

Personally, I think that adding anything to the already excellent lighting on a DeLorean in a way that makes it harder to see is a top notch idea Smile.

Though I am partial to the LUND covers.


I'm surprised it isn't known whose car is in the Beverly Hills film as there are/were very few with LUNDs

I'm guessing the covers wouldn't help with heat build up? So expect Healey-esq eyebrows?

You could add some kind of venting if they are used when lights are on. My guess is that nowdays they are better suited for daytime running or for show display when lights aren't turned on
