Left hand headlights needed

Post by gibbo_1000 » Wed Aug 20, 2014 11:08 pm

Hi. Hope you can help.
We are about to purchase our first bongo.
I would like to know if there are any left hand headlights out there, if not does anyone know of a conversion or have experience of what can be done. I have read the usual of using beam benders and the like but they will not cut the mustard here. The issue of the rear door being on the wrong side will not affect me :lol:
Thanks in advance..

Edit: A search reveals...

Does anyone have any knowledge on a left hand drive headlight conversion for a facelift model? I know the Astra ones fit (with jiggery-pokery) the pre facelift, but I wanted to avoid replacing the front end just for the headlights.

Hi
As per your other post...there aren't any headlights that fit as a direct replacement, unless you can source them from the Phillipines , where there are a few LHD Bongos. Some countries will modify your headlights. Where abouts are you?
