Over the weekend I converted from a 79 grill setup with square lights to a 77 and earlier set up. I then modified a second set of round headlight buckets that now mount inboard of the original set to have quad lights (sorry no pictures right now, I'll take some tonight)
The second set of lights mounted fairly easily. The mounting tabs needed to be cut off, shortened and welded back on and I was only able to use 3 bolt holes on each side but they are in there and fit (no wiring yet)
Does anyone have suggestions for the grille insert? The original posted picture is cool but that would be hard to make from an oem plastic insert. I have though expanded metal but can't decide.
There appears to be enough room to mount another set of buckets inboard of the originals. Once that is established, a piece of sheet aluminum could be fashion behind the grill and painted black to offer support to the grill.
I have a square tubed grill insert (77&79 loves em) that could easily be reworked for this.
But....imo, this is like test tube research on embryos trying to isolate and grow a midget baby. Its cool that someone finally does, but should they?😳
