Default Head Light replacment on my 1995



My head lights were getting dark. Tried buffing them out but they showed age and the park lights and chrome trim too. Ordered two sets and replaced them all. Really made a differ in the lights at night and they look so much better. The first set on the curb side took me a while to figure how they came out and what bolts to take loose. Just about to decide they would not come out and I discovered how easy the valance below the light comes out. I replaced the outside bucket with the new park lights on it. Left the old bucket in place for the center high beam. Just have to cut the new bucket in the same place as the old and drill 3 holes. A 4mm deep 1/4 drive socket fits the adjustment that also will remove the light.
I did the street side today. From the time I drove up to the bus barn to drive away was less than two hours. Replaced both lights and cut and replace the outside bucket with park light, alignment, and clean up, less than two hours.

I can see where the two anvils, a cutting torch set, mig welder and 1 inch impact really came in handy.

good job
