I have read some of the posts about the modified parking lights so one could install turn signals.
I know that Beachwood Canvas is one supplier that offers the original 45 & 46 bullet style parking light (for CJ2A models) that is modified for a dual filament bulb so that you can have the safety of turn signals. Is there anyone that sells the M38 front blackout light (or parking light) that has a double contact socket installed?
Has anyone purchased any of their lights or lights from others that have a very good quality socket installed?
I have been doing lots of research on sockets used for modifing lights and it seems that all the manufacturers are going
to the rubber cushion style socket over the phenolic ring with springs.
The rubber cushioned sockets are only good for two or three years and very much available at the common named auto parts stores
but I don't want that "stuff".
I know that Cole Hersee maikes some good stuff but their line is dropping off or at least that is the way it looks when you visit their product line
on-line. Many of the part numbers from even the late 1990's are going away.
I guess after all this wind my question(s) is this; Have any of your owners purchased a good quality, ready made replacement light or have you found a really good quality socket that you have used in modifing your front lights for the incorporation of turn signals? Supplier names and part numbers would really be a big help. If anyone has used the B.W. Canvas units with great success that would be helpful too.
