79 square to round headlight swap

In the process of swapping my headlights. I am in search of the round headlight mounting bracket “bucket” between the headlight and rad support. Does anyone know where to find one. Not even any used ones showing up on eBay.
Also if anyone is interested in a square headlight setup I will have the whole kit available once I complete the swap.

Also if anyone is interested in a rectangular headlight setup, I will have the whole kit available once I complete the swap.

You will need all the specific round headlamp parts shown in the pic, because none of the rectangular headlamp parts will work.

D8TZ-13008-A Right & D8TZ-13008-B Left .. Round Headlamp Assemblies / Obsolete

Include everything in the pic except the right/left 13064 headlamp bezels (either chrome or black, sold by themselves).

1978 F100/350 & Bronco, some 1979 F100/350 Customs. TWO of each side are available NOS from obsolete parts vendors.

Awesome thank you very much. I had gotten together a complete set but when I ordered the buckets from eBay, the seller had them listed as round but I did not look closely. They turned out to be rectangle buckets. Where was that figure from BTW.

I only really need the bucket itself for each side but if it’s easier for you I would take the whole headlight assembly and return this stuff to LMC
