Say Al, I can fairly accurately give you the inside measurements of the Turbo
lenses, since the front headlamp on my TQ is smashed (damn stone wall jumped
out right in front of me.)  What exactly are your trying to measure?  Lemme
know, & I can give you some pretty accurate details of the insides of the

I'll talk to Ann, see if she'll wander outside with her tape measure to the '84
5kS & whip out some calculations for us...  Now, do you want the masurements of
just the headlamps, or of the entire assembly (bezel included)?  I still think
you're gonna have to replace the grill to make this work...  Most of that fancy
chrome trim too (remember that the grill on the TQ's screws to the chrome trim
with three sheetmetal screws.)
