NB: you may have to rename the dds for few mods, you can see the name of headlights into .CAS file by searching for "Texmap=" with text editor.

HL_1_AI.DDS -> YHL_1_AI.DDS
HL_1_PLR.DDS -> YHL_1_PLR.DDS
HL_2_AI.DDS -> YHL_2_AI.DDS

7) GT Legends HQ LENS FLARE
-
IMPORTANT: GT Legends Sun strength and colors are really different compared to GTR2 (different game engine), that is why I have made 2 versions either dedicated to GT Legends or GTR2. Consequently you have to install the correct version otherwise effect will be poor.

Installation :
- This version is for GT Legends only, copy the content in your GTL directory (overwrite GameData folder)
- Option : you can deactivate each lens flare

Uninstallation :
- Delete
\GameData\Teams\LENS_FLARE_BLUE.DDS

-
Installation :
- choose arms color then copy "GameData" folder into your GTL directory (click yes to overwrite GameData folder)

NB: there is a 12 years old bug with M-FPDriver2.gmt (the only stock car which uses it is the mercedes 300sl). To fix this glitch you should :
- eventually backup (make a zip/rar/7z archive) M-FPDriver2.gmt from GTL\GameData\Teams directory
- delete M-FPDriver2.gmt
- duplicate M-FPDriver.gmt and rename the copy as M-FPDriver2.gmt
This is exactly what I have done in "OPTIONAL for GT Legends" folder (ready to copy-paste)
