What's in the Box

Info

There is nothing cooler than a mean looking car with frenched headlights. This kit includes all the hard parts needed to install such as the headlight buckets, stainless retaining and trim rings, adjusting assembly and hardware. These buckets require welding and body work to be finished.

These headlight buckets work best with sealed beam lights like a Sylvania 6014. They will work with tri-bar lights by opening up the hole in the back side of the bucket.

For 7" headlights. Lights sold separately. 

Specs

  • Bucket Depth:  6"
  • Bucket Diameter @ Front:  10"
  • Bucket Diameter @ Rear:  8"

it is not a one size fits all

September 09, 2014
good quality, like the instructions say it may need to be reshaped to fit some vehicles. I had to cut 3/8 inch off of outer ring to fit contour of 51 chevy PU.
Pros:
  • good quality looks great
Cons:
  • needs to be reshaped for proper fit
Yes, I recommend this product.

These frenching buckets allow the bulb to sit recessed in the body and the rings bridge the gap between the fender and the headlight. They are still adjusted from the front, like a stock headlight would be adjusted.

Will this kit work for 30's cars, like a 1937 dodge?

These headlight frenching kits feature a front mounted headlight instead of the install from the rear and get referred to as a conical appearance. The headlight itself sits in from the leading edge of the frenching bucket and the chrome bezel or ring goes inside the bucket and back to the seal beam.

Yes, I installed on 51 PU, need to reduce the size of the outer ring for proper fit, otherwise you will use a ton of bondo to bring the contour back out, I cut 3/8 inch and it fits fine

This frenching kit can be used on many of the earlier vehicles with the single 6014 type headlights such as your 51 Chevy pickup.
