I replaced sealed beams with ellipsoids, but I just took the connectors off the donor car and spliced them. One other mod was a jumper on the headlight relay to keep the low beams on with the high beams.

This article is great for Ellipsoid conversions

Check this thread for some more info

And this one

And this page

I would try a junkyard. You could probably get some for just a few bucks. Otherwise you might be able to get them at the dealer.

Or you could try to just rig something with clips, or solder, or ???

Yea I found out while changing fog light bulbs that the clips for those are almost identical to the ones i need...so ill go to a junk yard and cut some off.

If that fails my dad and I are just gonna use clips from radio shack, some tape and wire sealant or what ever...that should work.

Thanks for all of the help.
