Putting the two parts back together is a bit of a PIA. I installed the two parts of the headlight bucket assemblies together with the adjuster screws first, then installed the spring.

The adjuster screws have a machined "valley" that rides in the sheet metal "slot" of the headlight bucket:

Anyway, adjuster screws first, then the spring, back together:

Back "under the interstate bridge", recreated my "urban art":

Headlights adjusted back to specification. This simple adjustment makes a world of difference. Everyone wants to "upgrade" their headlights, I wonder if they ever adjust the originals correctly, first, before they condem them?

That's it for now :wave:
The relay is almost a safety issue...35 year old switch handling way more amps than it needs to...

Great work. It's beautiful!!

Everyone likes pictures, so here are a few more.

I have had this Jeep over a year, took the top off it for the first time the day it gets kidnapped:

I drove it for over 125 miles on Saturday, trying to burn some fuel out of the tank. Got good and sunburned LOL!!! Jeep is driving awesome, last few tanks of fuel have averaged over 18 MPG!!! Sorry to see it go back into hibernation.

One final picture for awhile, at the kidnappers layer:

That's it for now :( :wave:
