A couple years ago I did these photochops, might help someone visualize some further possibilities. The first one was starting with a Ducks Garden front bumper which cuts over the bottom of the SC lowbeam headlights a bit, creating a slimmer headlight shape:

Mik'kel Reed's looks the best.

yeah .. that picture I found on the net looks good . It has to start from top as you have said and an extension to the headlights (like eyelids) to make the headlights look like pointed at the bottom corner (observe the headlights well) .

it also need to have the right side skirts and rear in my opinion for it to look like a real winner thus transforming the whole look of the car ....making it a more modern Lexus.

Would need to convert single projector headlight to be able to have both low and high beam in one

Wish someone made a custom headlamp to match.
I would build one from scratch if I had the money

Seeing this is giving me so many ideas

I agree, grill DEFINITELY needs to go all the way to hood. And it looks alot better with the high beams deleted. If you keep the high beams, the spindle has to be much narrower and ends up looking weird/wrong proportions as well as too busy with the high beams.

Guess this is a good option vs spending $65k on the RC-F. Just wish we had better variety for our headlight lenses.

Isn't there a vendor that provides lenses now? Are they affordable? $200 range? Wouldn't mind spending a few hundred on clear lenses at this point. The "lined" look really ages our vehicles, and the ebay lights are simply terrible to see online or in person. Rather have two flashlights duct taped to my hood.

High beams will definitely need to be deleted. The fog lights will also need to be deleted and can possibly be wired to run the LED daytime running lights in the photo.

Yeah, Organized Garage Status will mold a clear lens to your headlights now, I don't remember the exact price for the headlights, but I had them make a clear lens for my high beams and I think it was $140 or something along those lines. They have pricing on their website though and do a lot to refresh the headlights of the car.
