A big thanks to WCP and MikeD81 for the headlight assembly parts. Between the two of your contributions I was able replace my slightly corroded headlight hardware and old plastic outer rings with real chrome ones. Plus I removed the "eyelids" that came with the bus years ago. The old parts were working, but there were cracks and it really needed some preventative maintenance. I buffed out and painted a few surface rust spots on the headlight indentations. I was going to switch to H4s, but these sealed beam quartz headlamps still seemed quite powerful when I tested them at night. You guys included a few of those too which will give me spares. Thanks a lot!

technically, Mike gets all the thanks. the headlight i gave you was from Murphy - his old '72.

Good luck in Calgary Mike.

Cheers
