Yes, I saw her face glaze over when I mentioned the AGM's differing recharge requirements.

Evan, would the reflectors in the replacement units you have need to have their mirrors treated?

I don't think so. That's why I grabbed them. Have to see if I have a good pair. They won't be as nice as new TCY, TYC, whatever it is, but probably good enough.

Don’t use TCBY because that’s yogurt

Thanks for the inputs. Gotta see what Momma wants to do. She seemed OK with taking a $30-$35 chance on new lamps.

FYI: Having a grand time fiddling with the '05 Ford Ranger I bought and even though Ford acquired Volvo completely in April 1999 I have yet to see a single piece of my trucklette which resembles a Volvo part.

Ford designs did not come until P3 - the P2 was pure Sweden, baby, right down to the meatballs.

The P80 headlight reflectors fade very badly... I just threw a set in my S70. Fortunately I have jewels in my V70R, so those headlights actually work. The originals were awful... I couldn't see ANYTHING without the high beams.
