    I'm lookin' for info on the kit that mounts the turn signal/park light inside the headlight on a 32 Ford headlight light. The socket,bulb, and a metal shield mount onto the reflector behind the lens.
    I thought Drake or Parr had them but, they don't. Who has them?
    Thanks, Smokey

    CW Moss has them......but you know you can just drill a hole in the reflector,( plastic or metal,) snap in a socket with s bulb you can get from NAPA, or look at the "help" rack....they are even brighter than the little peanut size bulb that go by the halogen bulb that Moss sells. I bought the kit and then changed out to the bigger bulb deal because the turn signal did not show up with the headlkights on. just my 2 cents.

    This will probably draw some flames but I believe that they are NOT legal in PA. Law could also have changed or I didn't get it correctly. You may want to check on it.

    If you are talking about the kit that puts the amber led in around the H4 bulb, I had them, but have taken them out... When your headlights are on, you can't hardly see the amber led light up....

    I've put them in the last 5 of the 32 roadster that I built and use a flat back socket and a 1157 amber bulb need the flat back socket for clearance and they do out shine the h_4 bulb and you can see the turn signal a night The sockets are about 7 bucks each

    Longt, I have mine mounted in the headlight, This was one of the things they questioned when I sent in the first pix of my car, I had to send pix of the headlight showing the park/turn signal in the headlight, then I got my title.

    For anyone using Ford parts, a '32 standard headlight (that is, from standard model with no cowl lights, not deluxe) has an extra socket below headlight bulb for the parking light that could be used for this. Don't like the idea, though...I think having blinkers in or immediately next to headlight works badly even on OEM's like recent Benz. Weak any time headlight is on, nearly invivible at some angles.

    I think the 2357 bulbs would give you a bit more light.

    I used a kit from Vintique. It wasn't expensive and all that I needed to do was drill the hole and it was a piece of cake.

    Vintique has a turn signal kit, but also sells a complete stainless unit, haolgen with the turn signal already in it. I took a pair of their 32 Ford units, and mounted the entire thing inside of my '37 Plymouth headlite buckets. As I recall, the whole Ford unit was less than $150/pr. on that evil auction site.

    Oh yeah, and a photo with the parking lights on should satisfy any bureauocrat in Harrisburg.
