WTB- (2) headlamp bucket grounding tabs?

Post by PareosWC »

I have managed to tear down just about every portion of this WC52, blast, paint, and re-assemble.

However, and after all that, I am missing the (2) metal tabs that connect from the ground screw to the top of the bucket securing bolt. Surely I had these before I blasted. I would assume that without them, one would not have a solid ground? Does anyone have a spare set?

I've always believed these tabs to be retainers for the mounting bolts.
Jeep would use an identical part if that is any help.

Thanks, David! After listening to other Dodge members, I just left them out. No problems in lighting operation whatsoever... :thumbup:
