Thanks Didi how far in are the new brackets you fitted are they all the same depth to set the lights.
Hi Terry,

I used a template that was borrowed to me by Werner Alker. He made the template off a later beetle headlight that already had the tabs installed.

Terry my Early Bay is just about done in the spray shop,

Then a week at the upholstery, then back here for the assembly,

Will then take photos of the whole process to help you should you still want it.

Will give you both options, and give measurements for future guys wanting to do the same.

Herman, where is the project thread for this early bay you're talking about?

Thanks Herman the back is playing up so at this stage I cant sit for long so I will be in the horizontal position for a few days or week so no rush.
Thank you for your offer.
