Hi all...

got these:

For this:

But I didn't get any of the metal brackets that bolt the plastic light surrounds in..
Does anyone have any spares or have a photo of what these lights look like bolted in without the actual bar over them so I can fabricate some brackets for them?

XH XR6 - plastic outer bracket broken.
This car had a front ender.
I do have those brackets separate as I picked them up off another wreck - the lights I have for my XH
didn't have them either.
I think the brackets help mount the outer plastic frames, and also mount the indicator on it's inner tab - you can see the small phillips head far right still fitted with broken indicator frame under it. The tab has a fixed nut bracket, and this all sits under the metal bracket the screw screws into, not like the upper pics.
You also have light scatter shields that fit under the lamps as well.

Thanks guys...

Snap, I do have the scatter shields, they are attached to the lights from memory.

I only paid 127 for both lights so I guess I can't complain.. now if only I could find some indicators for the same sort of bargain. :-)

The brackets are more complex than I was expecting... I can no doubt make something up.. but it may not be expensive to buy them from a wrecker... .might be worth a shot anyway.
