    3rd gen SC headlights don't fit in 3rd gen SW/SL bumper

    I'm working towards doing a 2nd gen SC front end swap onto my SW2. I haven't managed to find the needed parts yet, hasn't turned up in my junkyard, except I'm using 3rd gen headlights. A bit eager I decided to go ahead and swap in the housings, but was disappointed to find I couldn't get the mounting holes on the housing to line up with the bracket (which I swapped in first).

    Any ideas on if cutting a relocation bracket out of some sheet metal to stack between them until I complete the swap would work?

    Well, after looking at the owner's manual, I discovered the low beams need to be 9006xs bulbs instead of the 9006 I already had for my sw housings. As a result of these two factors, I've decided for now I'll wait to swap the headlights on until I also have the correct bumper and modified fenders. I may also do an LED headlight conversion at the same time since I'll need new low beam bulbs anyway.

    If anyone may see this and be curious, I DID set the housings in place and close the hood to take a pic or two just to show how it would look.
