aftermarket headlights?

Anyone running aftermarket headlights? I bought these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=ADME%3AB%3AAAQ%3AUS%3A1&viewitem=&item=120102788790

but they will not fit. They are too big to fit in the headlight "buckets", and even after I cut the back out of a spare set of the buckets, the outer rim is too thick for the mounting ring to fit. This is on my 64... just curious if anyone else has updated to a more modern headlight?

Hi,

I used the Bosch H-4 headlights on my 65 Sports Coupe with a relay and they work really good. Lots more light than the stock seal beams. I have only replaced the outside hi - low lights so far but they work great. They fit into the original buckets with no modifications.
