Any of you fellow John Deere collectors out there know which type of headlights were used on a 60 lawn tractor, the bug-eye headlights like used on a round fender 110/112, or the panel type headlights like used on a flat fender 110/112/120/140? Personally I think the bug-eye headlights, but I'm not sure. I know it would be a lot easier to drill the hood for the bug-eye lights, rather than drill the grill for the flat fender lights. The year of the 60 that I'll be working on is a 1969. I know the early 1966 and 1967 60's used the bug-eye lights, but '68 and '69 has me a little baffled.

I know the tail light for the '68 and '69 models were a standard rear light like used on a flat fender 110/112/120/140, which is an easy problem solved, it's just trying to find pictures of a 60 lawn tractor with the headlight package. If I can't find the help I'm looking for, I'll more than likely just use the bug-eye lights, since I already have an extra set on the shelf. Any help would be appreciated.

The grill is different from the one without lights as it does not have the studs for mounting the lights. It is also just a black decal with the deere on it instead of the plastic bezel. But the lights and rings are the same as the later 110 style.
