Hi Need the order that the headlight buckets get placed.
A B D C from drivers side to pass side
Depends on the year as well.
so DC on drivers side And A B on passenger side
I have to respectfully disagree ...its ABDC from driver to passenger
Standing in FRONT of the car, left to right, C,D,B,A
Like I said...
Yes you did, I thought it easier to understand by going Left to Right while standing in front of the car. Most of us read left to right, at least when reading English.
Deleted - others got this!
Here's a question ( Buick A bodies) -
I believe 64 to 67 each bucket is unique and 64/65 are the same set, 66 differs and 67 differs.
For 70 to 72 the 2 high beam buckets are the same and the 2 low beam buckets are the same.
is that correct?
And what did they do for 68 and 69?
I don’t know about the 64-67 buckets, but the 68-72 buckets are all different.
If they were the same they would not have different letter codes associated with them….. ………and to further explain the differences, it has to do with the location of the adjuster screws, and the notches punched into the buckets for the “bosses” that are cast into the headlights.
68 and 69 are also unique by bucket.
Got it - now is the letter order the same for all years? C,D,B,A?
I believe they are for the 68-72 cars. I know they are for the 69-72 cars, and see no reason why the 68’s didn’t follow the same rule.
Thank you i got to get my new led's installed
Todd - If that's what this is about - a word of caution...depending on what brand you buy you may find their housings are all the same, as in all low beam or all high beam. I just went through this on my 67 and had a dickens of a time converting my buckets to match the glass housings I bought. I wanted all 4 to be LED. That's when I discover the broad differences in buckets! I followed knucklebusted process:
i purchased the lights from Dapper .
It looks like they come in high and low beam. Please let us know how well they install in the factory buckets and some pictures in action would be great. Did you get any of the options? Which car are they going in?
I got the oem glass Hdr switchback with the 30 watt bulbs. they are going on my 71
