Joe's 1972 GTE - Post Paint Refitting

When the car came back from the painters there were a number of areas that I wasn’t entirely happy with and which were going to need some remedial attention.

Wanted : Headlamp bowls / adjusters 5 3/4 " 5.75

You can get wipac replacments from suppliers like stafford vehicle components for reasonable money.

The plastic bowls are better than the origonal steel but the chrome on retaining rings on the modern ones is very poor quality.
