Classifieds / Wanted 2 headlight chrome slotted mounting screws
« Last post by rolls and pleats on Today at 01:33:51 PM »
I am looking for 2 original (not repro) slotted headlight screws as pictured. These are the two screws that hold pre 67 headlight assemblies onto the body of a bus or bug. Looking for some that are in decent shape but interested in anything you might have.

Please see my samba add for pictures of what I'm after.

so what have I been doing ,drinking , smoking , social distancing and wasting the rest of my time .
 besides that moving fwd slowly real slowly but fwd at least.
yes, its really all about safety and the WOK has been pushing it for some time ,was thinking of heading to VEGAS in Oct .
but with the way things are economy wise im a bit tight .
so motor stays in car with deckled closed .want to do my winter overhaul but can't afford to do so ,
SO time to upgrade to 8.50 CERT cage . I have a 6 point need a 8 point and window net ect ect.
now 2 of my 6 points are legal and the other 4 are not ,needs to be supported on 6x6 " /36 sqin area 1/8 " plates .
I have 2 great contacts one local and one in the USA.
towed the car out for chassis inspection and got the pre-inspection list as well as bounced pictures ect off chassis inspector in USA .
stage #1 update the frt "A" piller 3x6 plates to 6X6 as well as add another 18 square inches to the "B" pillar mounts .
they were both cool in the not fully welded section and let the wires pass behind added 3x4 plate

for the 'B' pillar fabbed up some additional area boxes . played around with some tig settings for fun .
3 pieces later I more than added my total area of 36 sqin

yep more grinding of paint , real fun and clean .and some tig time and mig time and its done .
tape is covering bare metal , also added the 6x6" plate on the tunnel for the two 1.250" required "D" bars

halo fits well

passanger "A" bar is a piece of work ,
As always the plan is with the door closed roll cage is pretty much hidden ,just takes time

tig time ,practice and more practice . the tubing is 1 5/8" 0.083"wall 4130 chromoly .welds nice with ER70s-2 rod and about 85-90 amps

time of no turning back .tacked the passenger "A" bar to the Halo ,was not sure if it would come out , but it was tight but luckily it did .
added another 6 tacks and started welding about 1/2" -3/4" at at time moving around .you can see now those 'A' bars are pretty unique .

the plan is prime and paint the halo/A bar assembly then Finnish fitting the drivers "A" bar and paint it .then tack it to the Halo in the car .
I need to be able to fully weld the assemble so the top will be impossible .
so tack it and if worse cannot be removed just drop the rear halo down so I can get to the top of the Drivers "A" bar for welding .
the prop up again and weld Halo to main hoop and frt floor lower mounts .
also after test fitting will do the same with the "D" bars
