Not to be nebby, but if you are replacing the headlight housing as a whole, what are you doing with the original one? If its smashed or you dont have it all together thats fine, but if you have a faily decent one or one that has a cracked lens, I would love to have one to use as a prototype for my retrofit. let me know.

I have a retrofit planned too. Substitution of a glass lens from a regular, traditional, Jeep sealed beam headlight at some point.
