Default Headlight lid brackets for the NA

Posting in the race/track section since this is the target audience for this product

Brackets to fix your factory headlight lids, composite lid replacements, or lexan covers to the hood easily and securely.

I came up with these for my car originally since I long ago pulled the headlights to save the 20-ish lbs on the front of the car. Went through a few mounting solutions for the lids over the years before settling on this and really liking it.

Waterjetted from aluminum, comes with hardware of your choice, made in the USA.

Group buy is open for 2 weeks!
https://www.miataturbo.net/group-buy...ets-nas-80236/

Feel free to throw any questions my way either here or in the group buy thread.

-Ryan

These look like they could be used to make a slightly better version of the clear plates I used for my flushmount headlights.

A couple months ago I made a pre-production set of these for a guy in Hawaii who is doing exactly that with his

Confirmed payment and adding you to the group buy list. Do you want a rivet in kit or bolt in?
