New Order – Eleanor Headlight Buckets and Shelby Valve Covers

1967 eleanor mustang shelby gt500 body kit headlight bucket

Well it’s slow going but finally I’ve had to feed my addiction and place an order with Mustangs Unlimited. Today I spoke with my builder and he in turn spoke with the body guy and they both confirmed that the Aeroform headlight buckets WILL fit my custom Bosch Xenon headlamps Hoorah!

The headlight buckets and brackets are especially made for the Eleanor kits. They allow you to mount the headlight inside the kit which is often tricky with these kits. The buckets fit inside the brackets and then the brackets are secured from the inside so there is no movement.

This means that I don’t have to send the units back to the states to be refitted into the Shelby 5 3″4 housings. So this morning I contact Chris over at Mustangs Unlimited and placed an order and me being me I couldn’t help myself so I ordered some other bits and pieces such as the Shelby Valve covers.

Here’s a rundown of what I purchased:
