    I have the older style rectangle headlight and the mounting bolt and nut are spinning . can I drill out the rivets and put in a new carrage bolt or do they sell a kit to overhaul these lights ..I cant be the only one with this problem...

    common problem

    Cut the bolts, then grind the rivets of and just replace with 1/2" x 2", 13 thread count carriage bolts, I then use little nuts and bolts to rebuild the base of the light instead of re-riveting.
