Yes the US headlights (or UK GTI 1982) lights fit a UK grill.

Do you mean like this ????????

P S I've seen various pics of adapted grills so worth having a look in the show sections ie Biggar, Harewood House etc for ideas.
Should be reasonably easy to adapt one to suit your tastes.

Yeh that would be cool just since I'm practically finished with most of the mechanical side of it now would be nice to improve it cosmetically there's a guy selling us headlamps and is willing to ship them over but I'm not sure I could use them on UK roads with the beam pattern being different but there are UK ones that are us style so going to see what I can find everything's a bit costly online tho!!

The car above will be heading, as far as I know, to Harewood House in Aug and possibly Biggar 2 as well.
I am sure that DT1 would give you all the info you would need as he is a real genuine guy and very helpful.
I am not sure what spares he has but I am sure he could point you in the right direction.
I'll try and get some pics posted up to let you see what is under the lid.

Yes, the standard grill does fit. You will need to change the lights though to UK spec as what you have stated is correct, the beam will be for driving on the right if you get the US ones. There are plenty around, try Hella, they supplied the originals to VW.

From a geek point of view, 1982 UK GTi's were fitted with the same lights! :ugeek:

Gear knob sold, added inlet manifold gasket, I believe this is for the 16v but might work for all 1800 mk2 engines?
