I am considering replacing the hideaway headlights on my 1976.  Does anybody know if there is a conversion kit available that would allow me to replace those with fixed headlights, possible covered with glass or plexiglass?

Thank you.

  Jack did it on his 77 years ago, he'll chine in here. I have fixed headlights on my 68 but they are low & shine through the grills which made me   install  HID's which are sorta blinding to on coming drivers. I don't drive it at night so it really doesn't matter. They are all high beam lights & can be controlled either outside or inside or all on which is blinding,
