Headlight bucket/base to bib?

Check out part #40 (base) of the headlight assembly.

I have two OEM headlight assemblies and a new OEM bib for my 2/79 FJ40.

No way those assemblies fit onto the bib unless I lose part #40. Easy fix I thought. Remove the base, insert new plastic grommets in to the bib voila! NO...the adjusting screws (#45) for the headlamps that came with the assemblies are to big (diameter) to pass thru the new grommets I put onto the OEM bid...what am I missing here? Does the base mount behind the bib??

Any input welcome!

Cheers,

Dave

Update...

Sent pics to James at Cruiserparets.net, evidently I have the wrong headlamp assemblies. He is sending out new ones right away. Will post when installed!

Do you have any pictures of your headlight assembly going back together. I have a 1/79 front bib and I think it was missing the buckets, but I am not sure. I need pictures of a 79 bib with the headlights installed to see if I am missing anything.

How did yours go back together?


Thanks,
Chris

My 1979 doesn't have #40 either.

The sealed beams fit into depressions in my bib panel directly - well - without that thing anyway.

:cheers:
