I would guess that these LED lamps with optional Hella glass lenses should focus the light quite well. But could be wrong or the Hella glass lenses are not spcifically built for LED lamps.

Picked up most of the a/c bits and pieces I needed. Got a late solenoid and throttle cross shaft, a couple of decent side vents, plus a line on NOS vents. Ordered more than $1350 in new parts from Clark's. Saved $130 on parts and $50 on shipping. Now, to get all the Good Stuff installed on the 67 coupe! Goal is to have A/C installed and working for drive to Chicago 2019 convention.

Residual is something like $16,700. Don''t know if I will buy it or not. I suspect the residual is higher than what the actual market value of the car will be at lease end. And there will be more choices in new cars at the lease end than there is now.
