Re: pics of headlight covers

A friend of mine put those on his Z28 years ago. They attached at the bottom by drilling slots into the headlight pocket (permanent damage to your nose). They arent watertight so you will get water and steam in there. Personally not something I would do.

Re: pics of headlight covers

I made my own covers and fasten with 1/4 turn fasteners. Will not fly off at any speed.

Do you ahve any closer pictures of those and how they attach? Is there rubber molding around it or am I imagining that in the picture?

If you are even considering buying from them I suggest you do a search on that vendor...

That first pic I had pilot foglights installed as headlights. I made holes in the fiberglass header panel and bolted the foglights in place of the headlights. I made plastic frames around the foglights.
