- How to Install Raxiom Retro Style Headlights on your 2005-2009 Mustang GT and V6
Select Year2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Dave with AmericanMuscle.com and with me today I have Raxiom’s retro style headlights for the 05-09 Mustang GT or V6. The unmistakable retro styling of these lights from Raxiom were taken from the late 60’s early 70’s Mustang, and they’re going to fit perfect on your 05-09 Mustang GT or V6. These pre-painted housings come all ready out of the box with the premium H13 bulbs installed, and these unique housings feature a vent right next to the lens, and a rounded plastic lens itself that DOT approve. Guaranteed to fit, hassle free. Painted in house at AmericanMuscle with the same high quality paint as OEM, you can guarantee yourself these Raxiom lights are going to look great right out of the packaging. It’s no exaggeration to say that these lights will totally transform the front of your car, just like it did for our 06 GT behind me. The best part about installing these Raxiom lights, no drilling and no wiring required. You pop off the front bumper like you would for any headlight install, remove the factory housings, and put the Raxioms right back in the same location, even using the same hardware. Plug your factory wiring harness into the H13 bulb already in the housing, and you’re good to go. You can even reach the headlight adjuster knob once it’s installed with no special tools. Total install time, give yourself about an hour. The Raxiom retro style pre painted headlight for the 05-09 Mustang GT and V6 is one of the most unique and classic styled headlights on the market today, and is available at AmericanMuscle.com

Great look and bright!
My car previously had blacked out headlights so I couldn’t see at night. This makes a great upgrade! And the recessed look really compliments the retro theme of the car. Paint is a dead on match and looks great.Helpful (0)

Great retro look!
This is just what I was looking for to install on my 2008 Terlingua Racing Team Mustang. The unpainted black color is a perfect contrast to my Grabber Orange car, and installation was accomplished without having to remove my front wheels...only needed to partially remove the splash shields. Great product!Helpful (1)

Nice product, fit well and looks good. I bought unpainted version, only think that I think that could be improved is the projection of the beamsHelpful (0)

They might be a bit pricey, but I'm really glad I spent the money on these. Such a great look, there are several styles, but a lot of them just dont do a lot for me. But different strokes for different folks. Really pleased with these, and so many people have complamented on the great look they give the car.Helpful (3)
Is there a way to adjust these lights without completely removing the bumper assembly? As another person mentioned, out of the box these things are practically pointed at the sky, which is dangerous for yourself and other drivers. There are what appear to be adjustment points on top of the lights when installed, but they are blocked by solid metal with no way to access any screws.
The Raxiom Retro Style Headlights can be adjusted from the rear of the housing. it is a very fine adjustment so you may be turning for longer than expected. There is no way to adjust them while on the bumper.
Why does this headlight unit not allow HID's to be installed? In the description of the product and what comes with it, it states what kind of light bulbs it can use and it says that it can not be used with HID's and I was just curious why it couldn't use them.
The enclosure is too small to dissipate heat from any HIDs that have an external power supply.
What is the beam pattern for these lights? Straight flat beam, or right kick?
They will have a straight flat beam.
Can I use the Raxiom Headlight LED Conversion Bulb Kit on these?
The Raxiom Retro Style Headlights - Pre-Painted (05-09 GT, V6) uses a standard H13 bulb for its dual high/low beam. The Raxiom Headlight LED Conversion Bulb Kit - H13 (05-12 Non-HID) (Item #387347) is an H13 connection, so the two would indeed be compatible. You can find the LED conversion kit here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-h13-led-conversion-kit.html
The set I purchased look great but the bulbs shoot the beams upward and not on the road. Its difficult to drive at night this way. how do I adjust them without breaking the bulbs? thank you
The Raxiom Retro Style Headlights should have a small adjuster wheel on the back of the headlamp assembly to adjust vertical aim of the headlamps. turning this will move the beam up/down.
No. The GT and GT500 use totally different headlights.
There is not a PDF or a video of such. However just turning it will do the trick, just keep in mind it's very fine adjustments so it may take upwards of 5 minutes for a noticeable adjustment.
The adjustment controls cannot be reached when the bumper is fully installed.
We do not recommend disassembly of the lights. For painted options, see item #49162.
At this time, we do not have any plans to feature these in Dark Highland Green, due to the limited amount of vehicles that featured the color.
At this time we only carry the Raxiom Retro Style Headlights as a complete set of lights. We do not offer any individual replacement parts.
Yes, these headlights will have a clear plastic lens on the front of the headlight unit just like the factory lights.
The Raxiom Retro Style Headlights will accept H-13 LEDs.
We currently do not offer the Raxiom Retro Style Headlights in Dark Highland Green since it is not a common color.
