They are 993 headlights (or the 993 style at least) with projector lenses that shine forward, not up.

no
no
no....
the main issue with the 993 headlight conversion, is that they are not at the same angle as the 993 and thus POINT TOO FAR UP.

They sure do. I need to fix it, not sure how I'm going to yet.

You have the welding skills, so what do you think about adding metal to the factory headlight opening of the 968 fender to position the 993 headlight properly?

Nice work by the way.
