Headlight Brackets B10

Recommended Posts

I believe the lightbars are for the B-10's and the light brackets that bolt on are for the B110 and B112's. Below are my two with lightbar and aftermarket lights. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v374/55chevy/65BigTenand67B10A.jpg[/IMG] Somebody else chime in if I am wrong. Thanks, Chris

Nice! Thanks Bow - any chance you have closer pics of those mounts? I'll be running aftermarket lights anyways so I'm just trying to get a "close to stock" look. Huffy - thanks. I'm hoping to get more details on those, like length, etc.

I don't have one in front of me to measure, but the length would be the width of the front of the hood, plus the diameter of one of the lights (you need clearnace for 1/2 the diameter of a light on each side), plus about 1 1/2" to give you approx 3/4" on each side between the light and the hood. Also, beneath his pics Samson states the measurement from center of hole to center of hole, which should give you a pretty good idea how long the bar is.

Well after looking at the factory mounts and pictures, I've decided to go a slightly different direction with my mounting setup. Currently in mockup phase right now but will post up pics once complete!

Got the lights squared away on the front of the B10.. and the rear too! Figured I would include a few shots of the build and how I strayed away from the factory design. Materials is 3/16" thick by 3" wide flat stock profiled to fit the grill and spaced down to fit under the hood profile. I can come up with a drawing if anybody is interested.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
