Default I need to find a fixed front headlight for my (ex) '77...

I've just sold my beloved C3, some of you might remember when I built the beast quite a few years ago.

One of the modifications to save a few lbs of weight was to buy an Ecklers fixed front light kit...

I've just sold the car and the buyer called me y'day asking to please find him one the two rectanfular frontlights as it doen't work.

Ecklers seems to have stopped selling the kit, the one milion dollar question is: Do any of you guys know where I could find a front light replacement or the same kit altogether?

Thanks a lot.

Is it not a standard 165mm rectangle sealed beam bulb?

It's part of an Ecklers fixed lights kit, they're rectangular and they're sealed yes...

I guess what I am trying to say is that those bulbs are not unique to Ecklers. They can be purchased at any autoparts store (or ebay or Amazon)
