Front Bumper Delete 73

Im planning to go without the bumpers of my 73, but first need a replacement for the bumper-mounted turn signals and parking lamps. It looks like many people go with the setup in this photo. Can someone tell me what lamp assemblies these are? Is there a better option?

Those only fit on Euro cars unless you do bodywork. Stock late Euro GTV; white glass is Italian market.https://www.okp.de/xtc2/105/115-Bert...ml?language=en

GTAm style is an option for US fenders https://www.okp.de/xtc2/105/115-Bert...ml?language=en

I use these and put them in the existing hole where the wires pass through the body next to the bumper mount.

Great looking car.

The lights I used do not require any mounting hardware. They have some tabs built in so when you put it in the hole it is held in place. I did go to the local hardware store and bought a rubber fender washer to go between the light and the car though. You may need to trim the diameter of the washer. That will protect your paint, but it is also needed to help them from moving around because the hole in the body is technically just a tad too large for the light. The tabs still hold it in place fine so it won't fall out but it does move a bit. By adding the thickness of the rubber washer you put more tension on the tabs so they hold it in place better.

Not really on here. If you have Instagram though I post photos there (@71gtv)

These two links have some pics, and the Stanceworks write-up from a couple years ago also sort of tells the story of the car...
