Yes, Crappy Tire wasn't any help either, but that's expected from them.

The references to VW and Datsun models will really help me in the right direction. That's information I was missing. Thanks hugely. BTW, in reference to the Bosch unit -- would that be part number 301 600 118? I've seen many online vendors offering this headlight.

Although going with OEM parts is the best route, I want to keep the price point under $100 if possible; I've seen the recommended upgrade parts on Bench Mark Works approaching $200. That's a bit pricey for this build.
Typical present day parts punks....When I'm looking for a part that I know won't match their books, when asked "what's it for?" I say, "it doesn't matter"....that really gets them going. The typical parts guys these days only (somewhat) know "the book".....if it ain't in "the book" then it doesn't exist....,
