Default MORETTE PT HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLIES MOD

MORETTE PT HEADLIGHTS ASSEMBLY:




OK! So, as the Morette headlight assembly is finally on it's way again, I am beginning to conjure up my goals.

1. I do not know the exact dimensions of the headlight and turn signal holes.
So, ordering them will wait until the assemblies arrive.
But, I have already saved MANY links to headlights and turn signal lights.
My goals are twofold:
a. To use the OEM headlight connectors as is; even if and adapter is required. ("Simplicity)
(Just in case going backwards is required in the future.)

b. To have a sealed beam Halo headlights for Low Beam; and Halogen Projectors for High Beam.
2. DOT required side markers and reflector:
If I can, I would like to incorporate the side marker/turn signal into the side of the Morette assembly.
I am having a little trouble finding something that is both small enough, and aesthetically compatible for the profile of the Morette assembly.
There are lots of 3/4 inch and 2 inch round lights. And there some nice larger 3 inch+ smoked side markers that I could mount behind the front wheel.
But, here is my favorite so far - 2 inches wide, and could be incorporated into the side of the assembly.



I am also researching an amber front side reflector. This will likely be a curved one, mounted at the trailing edge of the front wheels on the fender, like all the new MOPARs have. I would grind the reflector/light flat enough to simply mount with 3M mounting tape. As, I do not want to cut extra holes in my body!

I missed your post this afternoon, and by the time I saw the seller's post, it was 6 hours and the assemblies were sold!

Just FYI, for those keeping count....

I got a message from Morette today.
"Postal" attempt failed!
Shipping as "sample"...this would be the 5th time!


He says..."I'm holding you to your promise when arrives"!
I replied, "My promise being kept is NOT THE PROBLEM HERE"!

For those of you NOT WATCHING CLOSELY......

After 5 MONTHS.....and 5 tries shipping.....I got the Morette Headlight masks from Spain.
They had to send them as a "manufacturer's sample" item, and use snail mail to get thru Customs. (I still think it's a Brexit "retaliation" by Spain for the UK company.)

So, as time permits, and through the winter, I will be working on modifying them for my PT Panel Project.
