Right hand drive headlights

HI, I cant find any other threads here about this, but I'm looking for right hand drive headlights for my 1987 f350. Does any one know who sells them at a reasonable price. ONe supplier I have seen must have lights with majical powers for the price. I'm in West Oz, any help would be grateful

They are hard to find these days. I presume you are talking about the aussie style lights. I lost one on an old truck of mine and it was expensive to replace. Good luck

Okay, finished modifying my head lights today for aus rhd.
I removed the headlights, took the globes out and removed the three locating lugs that hold the globe.
I put the globes back in and rotated them about 15* anti clock wise.
With some adjustment seems to have done the trick.

Put this here incase any one else is wondering. your options are either buying aus delivered lights if you can find them for $800 or more or modifying the ones you have if you have an import 87-92.

Cheers

Hi, I also found this method worked. The newer style headlights have a clear lens, all the low beam light cut-off is done by the bulb. For the 2005 HD lights I shipped over from the US, the above fiddle to re-orient the bulbs gives you the low beam cut-off for RHD.
