New Clips for Frenched Headlight Rings
Finally! Someone had the idea to repop Merc headlight ring clips that will let you install and remove chrome rings from the front for easy headlight removal and proper adjustment of your headlights. No more jacking the car up to remove the front wheels to get to those frenched headlight buckets. These clips will work on all '52-54 Mercury headlight rings, as well as the aftermarket frenching rings sold everywhere. They're sold in sets of six and include an installation and removal tool, all for $36. For more info, contact Don Mullalley, 25110 Marks Way, Dept. R&C, West Harrison, IN 47060, (812) 637-1742.
