    Ok thanks. The guy selling them on this forum seems to have disappeared for further questioning on the matter.

    So any idea if the later '75 frosted lenses actually fit into the earlier 71 bezels?

    Thanks much for your time to follow up, Craig. Thought maybe I could cut up a pair to make them work on my early GT/Grabber style bezels but seems a no-go. After talking with Mike(yellow75) in more detail and him linking me to pic's showing the differences it pointed me towards the 1969-1970 Cougar/Mustang versions. They also have the small divots on each side of the plastic housings to allow them to slip into the early style GT/Grabber bezels with their protruding screw hole bosses.

    Like these.

    And my GT's similar design but in orange.

    And as I mentioned to Mike.. finding these in NOS condition seems to be just as rare as hens teeth too. But timing is everything and I'll just have to be patient till they pop up. Thanks again for your time and input.
