Q: Hello, What vintage spotlight would I order for a 1953 Chevy truck on both driver and passenger side and what mounting kit should I order for window post mount? Thanks

Asked by: Wynn Grimet - 8/13/2017
A: For 1953 Chevrolet Truck you need a spotlight with a B length shaft. For lamp our records have that the vehicle was originally 6 volt, so U-4515 should be used. If the truck was converted to 12 volt then use U-4405. Ornament is your choice, we would recommend either the Unity (Raised) or GM (Raised) Ornament. Handle color is your choice, but ivory is correct for the time period. A 25 installation kit is needed for driver side mount or a 25RH installation kit for passenger side mount.

Q: What is the appropriate install kit for a 2011 Kia Sorento? What shaft length is recommended or required? I cannot find any reference to my vehicle in your look up tables.

Asked by: greyfox74 - 9/1/2015
A: Unfortunately, the 2011 Kia Sorento cannot have a standard spotlight mounted on it. The light would interfere with the deployment of the side air curtain.

We would recommend either a rooflight or handheld spotlight

Q: is the bulb housing made out of plastic or metal?

Asked by: BRIAN - 7/23/2015
A: The shell and ring that hold in the lamp are both made out of chrome plated brass in our Chicago Factory on the same machines we have used since the 1940s to make these lights

We do not have a 5" diameter plastic housing for spotlights. Our high impact ABS housing are only available in 6" round and 4" x 6" rectangular housings.
