Headlight Installation Kit for all 1987-1993 Mustangs.This super convenient headlight installation kit contains everything you need to install your new headlights. Kit includes backing plates, seals, adjusting screws, retaining clips and headlight bulb retainers, enough for both headlights.
This is also a great kit to purchase if some of your original parts are missing or damaged.
Having ordered this kit to replace broken headlight mounts, I noticed that the new mounts, adjustment screws and mounting inserts were of excellent quality. The retaining clips for the adjustment screws had too much play in them, so I reused my original clips. The rubber gasket was slightly undersize, and would not fit tightly around the corner of the headlight.
The good news are the adjusting-screw fittings in the plates - nice brass inserts pressed into the plastic. The seals do not fit across the top of the headlights, and they do not hold well at all to the sides of the headlights. There is also a lot of plastic flashing the needs to be trimmed off. The headlight retaining twist-locks are very close to the side of the hole making it difficult to change headlights. This may not be the improvement you are looking for.
I was not happy with this kit. I bought it along with the head lights and I figured it would make things easier, it did not. The hardware is cheap I had to use a tap and die on the treads on the adjusters to free them up. The rubber seal that goes around the light is also cheap. The rubber seal was not even secured to the metal frame, and even if it was it would not fit properly. I ending up using my old seals. :(
I was somewhat disappointed with this kit. I tried using the new clips and when I installed them the divot that was formed into the clip was not deep enough. I tried making it a little deeper and the clip broke. I'm using my original clips. The seal was too short on the top of the headlight housing, did not fit well on my stock headlights. The hardware is a bit cheaper than stock. My advice would be try to make your old hardware work.
