    Default Wanted: R8G 1135 Inner headlight bucket

    Hi - looking for an inner headlight bucket for 1135 front if someone can provide one or knowledge of a workaround.

    (Drawn a blank so far with the various NOS/parts stores although not all have replied as yet).

    Hi,

    I have R1132 bucket for you. I think it is the same as the R1135 inners because that is the small one. I'm in NZ so unless you find one closer, shout out.

    Regards, Frans.

    An R1132 bucket isn't the same as an R1135 bucket. The R1132 is mounted behind the front panel, the R1135 is screwed onto the front of the panel (different mounts between them), and the wire goes in the top of one and the bottom of the other. However, in the absence of an R1135 version, it could be adapted to suit if originality is not important.

    Thanks Simon and Frans - wanting to keep original - will see if anything surfaces before modifying to fit.

    I've got a box full of various Renault-ish headlight buckets but I am not au fait with the R1135. Is there a chance of a picture..?

    I've just done the conversion. Not too difficult with an angle grinder and cutting disk held in a vice. I used an original to mark out the approx 10-15 mm to trim off. Make sure to leave the meat for the top and bottom tabs

    Is the lower one the type Mr Floride 59 has got? It looks about 95% there, if it is the same size. Almost like if it is the original bucket later modified for use on the R1135. If AnthonyB is looking for Pebble Beach standard it probably wouldn't do, otherwise, apart from the hole, and differing clips it looks the goods.

    And it'll be in the post tomorrow, another happy Frogger.
