==HJ- HZ Front Panels:==
This is some basic information regarding the assembly of a HJ-HZ single headlight front end. I'll add more as I take pictures.
The front end is made up of six main components:
The radiator support is attached to the front of the chassis via a bolt on either side:
===Front Nose Panel:===
===Left Inner and Outer Guards:===
===Right Inner and Outer Guards:===
There are many other components such as grille, headlights etc which I'll mention as I go along.
The headlights attach to the radiator support panel via two adjustment screws and a retaining spring. The lens-in this case a 7" beam- sits in a metal cup with a chrome plated ring holding it in place
The adjustment screws are held in place by a square plastic "nut" which expands in the hole in the support panel as the screw in tightened. Tabs on the metal lens cup attach to the end of the adjustment screws so the angle of the lens can be changed by loosening or tightening the screws.
===Headlight Retaining Spring:===
The flat side of the retaining spring is inserted into a hole in the radiator support panel and the the other side attaches to the chrome headlight ring.
Other bits attached to the radiator support panel include the bonnet catch which is fixed via three panel bolts to the support panel:
Small bonnet stop brackets also attach to the inside of the support panel. The brackets attach via three panel bolts to the radiator support as shown below:
