993 New Oblong Headlights. Where can we source them from.

Post by Guest on Mon May 18, 2015 10:02 am

A month or two ago somebody mentioned that you can still get New 993 Oblong Headlights relatively easily and cheap too.

I have looked back at the many recent posts but can't find it.
If anyone knows of where they can be sourced,  I or Bryan here on the Island would be very grateful if he can keep his van going.
It has a Romahome "Workhorse"  body as they were known and he has a regular round all over the Island supplying  Herbs and Spices to lots of Island shops and has done so even before my days with Romahome in 2002-2004.
Many thanks in anticipation of info. Woody.

There is a website www.powerfuluk.com which sold oblong headlights. They do both crystal and standard headlights but I thought the stated sizes didn't always match up.

Might be worth a look though?

I think that you are right on the Money. Thank you very much for that.
Bryan will be very pleased and relieved. The Mot runs out in a couple of weeks.

OK, just checked their site; they seem to have dropped the oblong ones. Perhaps you will have better luck checking it?

Have just checked Swarfing's post. They are the same ones and the same company. I wonder why I couldn't find them on their site? Puzzled now. (There were originally other oblong ones on their site

Eventually found the crystal ones under Toyota Hilux; they seem to think they will fit other cars from the 80's and 90's.

As long as you have a fixing bezel then almost any square headlight will do. Its funny how they try and relate them to a particular car. Same as the old Lucas round lights, used for absolutely everything back in the day.

The problem as I remember was that they had a range of oblong ones but the quoted dimensions all varied so I was concerned as I didn't want to start filing things down.

Yes I believe that you are right about the Hi-Lux van. I sold my friends one for him and was going to nick the two headlights out of it and put a couple of manky Hi-Jets in place. But the pest turned up in the morning when he had said late afternoon so that stuffed that game.
Thank you very much for all your help and assistance. Just going to order four as one of my vans is a very tidy 993cc and it could do with one anyway.

Oh yes!! And at £18 including P&P too. It's what dreams are made of. Instead of the Nightmares we have with Valeo headlights.

Yes damn good deal thank you very much.  I haven't had a go at fitting mine yet. I haven't been working at the Garage all week.

It's been a Woody's Handyman Services week this week.
The chap I got two headlights for too, is coming over tomorrow morning. Should put a huge smile on his face. { Who nicked the word smile ?}

They are an absolute bargain. Bought 6 of them. Will order some more for stock...
For future peace of mind.
