Headlight bucket and mounting images
« on: December 02, 2017, 08:45:16 PM »
Hi guys,

As I purchased my car half assembled and the rest in boxes, I have no idea what the headlights mount to. Does anyone have pics of the headlight buckets as well as the way they mount to the frame?

Cheers,
Greg

I do not really have what you are asking for.  I was to excited when I disassembled the front and did not document properly.  Here is what I do have.  I did not have a good camera at that time either.

IF not one else is able to post I will try to take the headlight out of my parts car and get pictures of the buckets in place.

Thanks for the pics Clewisiii!

I have the two halves of the buckets for each headlight. Do these buckets just bolt straight onto the headlight/ grill panel or do are these buckets mounted to the grill itself?

Cheers!

Here is the bracket that supports the headlight bucket. Bolts pass through this bracket into weld nuts on the headlight bucket. I highlighted in white. There are 4 bolts in engine compartment and 4 bolts in wheel well on each side.
