I'm seeing a trim on epay for headlights area on 990. I also see Z's unit on here with what loooks like cleaner area then on mine. Mine has a tinny looking part, PO painted black on whole tractor and hard to see, but almost seems like I should have a cover over headlights that screws to that tin maybe?? Not sure. Here's couple pix I had, not sure if can be seen clearly enough or not.

I believe you have all the OE parts there. Far as I know, there are no other pieces that are missing at the light area.

Yeah, that looks like what I got. Not here yet. Mine just has a tin over lights to hold in, sticks out away from grill face and exposed sharp edges. Think someone made it to hold in lights, which also don't look like right mounting. There is some edging on that tin that pushes on light in front, but ther was also some real thin rubber behind the bulb, looked almost like heavy tape that rides on grill casting. Think not correct rubbers and don't know WHAT it should be like. My regulator is bolted behind grill, same area and it has two bigger stove bolts coming thru same tin and holding that on in center. I see your pix shows no bolts there, but does have outer screws which mine also had. have to study parts page more, see if I can see what should be there and what I have now.

Yep! Got it yesterday and jus what I wanted. Looks like one in pix. Two outer bolts to hold it on. Slipped it over what I have and fits great and looks good. Hmmm what color? Black chasis and mostly Red like others here, but need dash and this trim to be diff maybe?
