« Part 9: This has been one tricky little part to make. Part 10 of 1933 Ford Fordor Sedan series Part 11: Progress Mockup »

These headlights look way bigger so on went the thinking cap again.
I found some 1” dia headlights on Bearwood but shipping to Australia isn’t cheap along with a very poor exchange rate.
Make them!

A craft bead + a tiny wooden spoon + a piece of dowel.

They still need some shaping and sanding but they’re okay

But like you said yours are okay.

Thanks Dutchy, I did look at yours and the shop bought ones I have in the cupboard, they just seemed smaller and especially against the horns I made.
These are about 27mm diameter at the front and about the same length.

cost is always a factor but self made makes it sweeter
