I have two Smith Headlights that I want to put on my 1918 Model T Speedster. What I am looking for is 4 of the spring metal clips that go on the headlight body and hold the headlight rims onto the body. Below are several pictures and the part is 3 inches long.

That looks like a tough one. I hope you are good at creative diy. There should be some kind of spring stock that could be easily available, and modified. Spring steel can be very difficult to cut. Use a grinder, and cut slowly, to avoid heat.
I would like to see pictures of you headlamps?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I might just have to form and craft the spring retainers. I was hoping not to have to do that but may be forced to, if I can't
find some.
