    FS: Original SWB Headlights - Restored

    ** SOLD **

    This set is almost identical to the following set I sold here a short time ago:

    http://www.early911sregistry.org/for...l=1#post933834

    Here's what the buyer of that set had to say:

    Hi John:

    Headlights showed up today. Everything arrived in one piece due to great packing. The lights look better in person then in pictures. Just fabulous. Can't wait for the turn signals.


    I'll just go ahead and repeat the text from the last listing as these are the same. I built these with restored Bosch housings and reflectors. Reflectors have been redone using the vapor deposited aluminum process. New chrome trim rings, adjuster screws, gaskets and mounting screws. Lenses are the correct BOSCH 4487 (the best looking lenses on an early 911 given their flat profile that match the side view of the fender). I've equipped these with the correct original 40/45w tungsten incandescent bulbs but I'm also including 60/55w Halogen bulbs with the correct P45t base that can be easily switched out.

    Thanks,
    John

    I neglected to say that these were Euro, but I imagine everyone knows that.

    Cheers,
    John

    Price Reduction

    I've come across a small cache of early lights that I would like to buy so I'm lowering the price of these.

    Thanks,
    John
