Adding Headlights to MF-10
Posted September 11, 2011 - 10:05 PM
Is it possible to open up the headlight holes and add lights?
Does this require a different grill or mounting hardware?
I just did some searching and it looks like it can be done with some fabrication. and headlight grommets.
Would adding headlights change the collect-ability of the tractor as my machine never came with the headlight option?
Thanks for the feedback.

Can anyone tell me if the headlight assembly for the MF8, 10 & 12 are the same as that for the MF14? If they are, I have a MF14 and can fabricate an exact duplicate. I think I can supply everything except the headlights themselves for approximately $65 to $70 including shipping to the lower 48 states if I can make a dozen or so at a time. Not sure about Canada as I've never shipped anything to Canada. That should include the plate that holds the lights, the bolts that hold the plate in place, the wiring harness and, the rubber grommets that go around the lights.
All the same MF7 to 16

You can trim the hole with door edge molding (remember that stuff that all the cars had on the door edges back in the 90's) Making a bracket is not too hard, I had a sheet metal shop bend some 90 degree bends in a length of steel, drilled two holes with a hole saw, and cut out the rest. I think mine is 10X stronger than the stock one, but it was not expensive at all. For the headlight notches, I just used some small rubber hose with a slit cut in it.
I did get a little fancy with the wiring, but I hate loose wiring flopping around!
