WANTED; Headlight bezel for Blue Bird

WANTED;
Headlight bezel for Blue Bird TC2000.
Millicent is a 1992, but this is the same bezel over many years.
I believe left and right are the same.

Best way to reach me may be by regular e-mail:
elliot.naess@att.net


Thanks!

I don't know about the single but, the dual on my 91 AARE is the same as a lot of semis. I found this out by doing a search for the number cast into the bezel.

Ah yes... P/N 110 321204.
And I just now ordered one from a Freightliner dealer in Cleveland!
$15 for the part and $23 for shipping.

Thank you, both of you!
I was kind'a stuck on finding a used one from one of our own forum-members, but this allows me to sleep better tonight.

And I am STILL vacuuming glass throughout the interior from the smashed windshields. So I need all the peaceful sleep I can get.

Regrettably know the feeling...

So glad you're getting it fixed up!

PM me if you need a nice BlueBird grille for the other bus!
(I would arrange shipping through burners and other trusty vagrants!)

Thanks! The new bezel is en route, they tell me.

Grilles I have, but thanks for thinking of it. It was a great relief that the vandal did not damage Millicent's Genooine Peterbilt grille!

Now... I could use a rear bumper -- regular Blue Bird. Millicent sports a rear on the front, to accommodate said Peterbilt grille. And I once ruined one when I sank Millicent in mud -- right in my own back yard! LOL
Of course, we are not shipping a bumper from Ohio -- unless someone is coming from there to the 2021 Burn, 14 months from now.

Friends of mine would be driving their ex-U-haul-truck from KY to blackrock city but 2021 is too far out for me to remember...

I just came into some BB rub rail I'll be offering up to anyone in need.
Some of it's too long to fit in the U-haul but if cut (to fit in the u-haul) it could be welded back together...

I've got a 1991 BB with the same headlights. I upgraded to the ones with the marker light in them from here. They also carry the basic ones. You'll find them under the Mack truck parts.https://www.raneystruckparts.com/?tr...ERPRODUCTS2020

Aha! Are those LEDs bright enough for turn signals, or only markers?

Elliot, I'm not sure. I haven't wired them up yet. They do have 3 wires, red, black and white. So I would think you can wire them to be. I actually have to order another set. The first set are for the stock headlights. I also purchased 2 more headlight buckets that I have installed in place of the front red warning flashers. All 4 have LED headlight lamps.

Splendid. With three wires, they do have both brightness'. Then I may decide to upgrade one of these days. Thanks!

Sounds like you got one on the way. I’m too late for my two cents or opinion. But here it is any way for future issues. I have a 96’Bluebird and my bezels were broke. Gorilla has an epoxy I used. What’s nice about it is it’s sandable and paintable. I also used it to repair the holes for my corner mirrors mounting screws. The holes were rounded out in the fibreglass hood. This worked for it also. ����

Repairing instead of replacing is a laudable concept indeed!
