Looking forward to a review of the LED headlight option, I have been thinking about doing the same for the past year or so

Now I know the LED main beams fit properly it was time to strip down so I could strip & repaint the metal mounting plate as they were both very rusty, I de rusted them with Bilt Hamber Deox-C, 3 coats of etch primer, then 2 coats of satin black. The RH one needs some thread repairs too as the M4 threads are damaged, this will be done with a flush fit rivnut.

Managed to salvage the old headlight mount that needed repairs. It was quite rusty, so there is quite a lot of pitting visible, also had 2 out of 3 threaded holes damaged, these holes mount the headlight to pod, so had to be repaired, I used some thin sheet, flush fit Rivnuts.
