AC 712 Headlights

John, I have a 710 early model. I am in the process of developing a conversion kit that will allow someone to use readily available small MR16 type lamps. I work in the lighting industry and I have found a source for lampholders that will use standard twist and lock MR 16 lamps that you can buy at many outlets. I know WW Grainger stocks them for about $7 each. I have not priced them, but have been told that factory replacements of the double bayonet type lamps are about $40 each. If you don't find factory replacements and can wait for about another week, I think I will have a retrofit ready. I don't know what the cost is going to be yet, but I'm expecting it to be about $40 or so without lamps. Total cost to replace the factory lamps with this kit would be about $60-$70 for all 4 lamps. The look of the lamps is almost original and the light output is much brighter. Let me know if you have an interest.

I recall (did a search and could not find it) that the small headlight were no longer available, and one of the sites sponsors had some for sale. Good Luck! Mike S.
