UFO headlight twin halogen hardware

Postby bored808 » 11:13 am Jan 23 2015

I had this laying around and took out the halogen lights and installed LED mr16 w good results.
Upon removal of old headlight I damaged some of the speed nuts that hold the lights in place until I was able to figure out a better method.
Where can I get new speed nuts? I tried local auto parts stores and home improvement stores w no success.

Well I just called UFO and they do not sell replacement speed nuts.
I will just have to look harder.

What are LEDs like with the a/c power?

It's a long shot but sometimes dealerships have speed nuts, that or the local junk yard in bumpers and splash panels etc

same here, I know them as fender nuts and I think (not certain, but close) you can find them in your local autozone "help" section

if you have a Fastenal store, they keep an amazing amount of nuts, bolts, etc in stock.

They are actually called push nuts and I can't quite seem to find the right size. Maybe because its made in Italy and possibly a metric size.
