Whats this from ?

Post by CCSICeman » Sun May 13, 2012 10:03 am

My friend is restoring a bus. This is what it looks like at the moment.

But the headlights that came with it look like this. I don't think they from a splittie, but don't know what they from.
They fit. Anyone know what they're from?

Can't believe I've got such quick responses.

they are rossi, have a look on the blinker cover it says rossi
in plain sight.
they will fit straight on & are very cool headlights with built in blinkers,
if the surround is chrome steel & not plastic then its a great score.
