older pinto headlight bezel fit newer pinto
« on: September 15, 2016, 11:48:16 AM »
I am wondering if the older 1972-3 pinto headlight bezel will replace the rubber bezel of the 1977-8 pinto.

What part are you referring to? I don't recall the 77-78 Pintos having a rubber headlight bezel. Are you by chance referring to the headlight buckets that are outside? If so people have converted to the early model headlight buckets. Mainly when they replace the entire front with different grill, headlight buckets, and bumper filler.

Yes, I guess that would be the name for them, headlight bucket. I have the left one distorted because the bumper or fender pushing on it for years. I think I can put some heat to it and reshape it if I have to. Thanks for the info.
