I think you are on the right track. Being able to rotate them is very important. When my rotation was off, one headlight was casting all kinds of light way up onto the side of houses when rolling through a residential neighborhood. uggWhat I'm shooting for is the ability to perform a rotational adjustment by simply loosening a couple of screws from the from front while the headlight housing is sitting in the car, before the final buttoning up.
At least on the bug, the headlight lens simply snaps in place!
Ohh as far as your lenses snapping into place.....I'm very jealous!
I'm going to try and make some sort of bracket to get them to fit but I am very limited in space on the back side of the headlight assembly. Once I have the FX-Rs in hand I can determine how things will pan out. For now I am just guessing. Keep us updated on your RX350s. I can't wait to see how they turn out!@F8L. I get squeamish when people mention JB weld in their retros. Do you really find it necessary? Wouldn't an adjustable set up like the one above work but nuts, bolts and washers and a little blue loctite?
@schwarze Käfer - Looks good. This has inspired me to make my own brackets for my next Golf retro (RX350 bi-xenons). I hope to get these done by the end of the month. I will definitely post picks.
