Really sorry to ask a crazy question about the head lights lenses. Should the ribbed side of the glass be to the outside or to inside the bucket??? Thanks in advance. I looked on old posts put could find the answer. I have the ribbed part to the inside and I have never paid any attention. And they were apart for months. Thanks for the info. Tim

Yes, ribbed to the inside for the "H" lenses used 1922-27.

Hey thanks a lot. I swapped out and put some purple colored lenses on my 26 profile car. They sorta match the paint. I also forgot to look and pay any attention after one of those 15 hour days at work just checking.. Thanks again Tim

Yes, inside the bucket...they're supposed to disperse the light outward...have to have the prisms crests inside to do that.
