    512/ TESTY HEADLIGHT RETAINERS

    MY 512TR CAME WITH 5.25" DIAMETER HIGH AND LOW BEAMS AND THE FIBERGLASS HEADLIGHT PODS, BUT NO HOUSINGS! DOES ANYONE HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR RETAINERS THAT WILL HOLD THEM INSAIDE THE H/L POD AND ALLOW THEM TO BE ADJUSTED ETC. SOME OLDER VETTES ETC. SEEM TO HAVE SIMILAR HEADLIGHTS, ANY IDEAS?

    I have a couple extra sets, i can check the diameter of the bulbs tommorow.I got mine off of several old cars, i think one was from a ford farirlane. I was at the local u-pull it yard last week and there were several newer cars with the round headllights, one was a BMW, other was a datsun pickup, other was some sort of toyota. I have been meaning to call you again. I think i have the measement for the head- light houseing brackets.Let me know what you think.

    I've got a set from a BMW if you're interested. I was going to modify them... but I went a different route.



    The light on the right looks smaller because it's further back.

    I DO WANT THEM,
    I JUST NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE THE RIGHT DIAMETER, ALSO DO THE ADJUSTMENT SCREWS LINE UP WITH THE HOLES ON THE TOP AND SIDE OF THE HEADLIGHT POD? HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT , CAN I TRADE YOU ANYTHING FROM MY MASSIVE COLLECTION OF FIERO/FERRARI PARTS?

    They measure out at 5.75", but you could modify them to accept your headlights, and make use of the "adjusters". I'll glass bead blast them for you before I ship them if you wanted to try them out.

    THANKS, BUT I WANT TO TRY AND GET SOMETHING WITH A SLIGHTLY SMALLER DIAMETER AND ADJUSTERS IN THE CORRECT SPOTS, SO THE PODS DONT HAVE TO BE ALTERED SUBSTANTIALLY
