Classic headlights

Hi Guy's.

I was wondering if the headlights from a facelift classic are the same as the pre-facelift? I know they changed the front bumper,grill and i think the bonnet but not sure on the lights. Even if they are different, will they still fit? Reason i'm asking is i've located a set of morette headlights for a good price, but they are off a facelift model. Cheers, Andy

Re: Classic headlights

you can just about get away with it, my first classic had angel eyes fiited when i got it and they were the same shape as the facelift headlights. there was a bit of a gap between the grill, but nothing too noticable. would probably look worse if you were just fitting standard lights, but the morrette lights might look ok?!

not the best pic, but you can just about see what i mean.

Cheers for that guys, n the pic does help too. My plan was to spray the surrounds black and get a new chargespeed front grill for it too. So with a bit of tweeking, i reckon the gap wont notice all that much n i may just get away with it.

Go for it mate, that does actually look ok.
I've got the original Morette headlights on my classic pre-face lift and they fit really perfectly, but I couldn't live with it any other way

Re: Classic headlights

Well, got him down to £135, as they had a slight crack in one of the surrounds, nothing that i cant fix tho. He does actually have the bonnet too, and in the same silver as mine, but i can't quite justify the expence at the mo, as off to China for the Chinese new year at the end of the month so the GF will kill me if i'd bought the Whole front end...Tho she prob still will when the lights turn up...
