A little over a year ago we posted our special find of NOS headlights. For those who missed it the post is here:
Today we managed to finish the housings that these lights reside in. Not that it took a year to do it but some of the pieces took some time to source out so now we have a complete assembly. Among these are correct to original brass rivets that hold the spring clips that fix the large headlight rings in place. These rivets were set with a special tool Dad made on the lathe from an old bolt.
Once installed they look OEM perfect; its just too bad they cannot be seen. In addition every part was either powder coated, re-plated, or cleaned. Note the large dish shaped ring which is galvanized and not plated. Another assembly ready for final installation.
Now for some before and after photos
