You can buy from the Toyo dealer all new headlights with the buckets and everything. Mine were the same way.
 
Depends.....are yours rusted through or do you just have surface rust? I took my front bib to the sandblaster and the headlight buckets cleaned up really nice. When I got it back I shot it in POR 15 to get into all of the nooks and it turned out great.

If your buckets are shot then check out the classifieds section here or send a request out to the community and someone should have what you need.
