Question about 1986 Nissan Stanza
I currently own 1986 Nissan Stanza Wagon 2.0. I cannot pass inpection for the simple fact that both headlight are rusted and very old. I need to ask you if you know someone that carries this headlight for the "wagon" not the car model, because they are different in shape and size, I will sincerely appreciate the help, thank you very much.
I had a quick look on ebay and craigslist and nothing. I would suggest the auto wreckers, but even if they had them, they would likely be shot as well. If you are desperate and so inclined, you could buy some standard sealed beams for a 2 lamp system, fabricate some mounts and surrounding trim and replace the existing units. Even if you did this temporarily until you found the right ones, the inspector must pass them if they are at the right height and aimed properly. They don't have to be pretty, they just have to work and have no sharp edges exposed incase you hit somebody. Not kidding about that either.
