autoloc makes a nice set and wysco makes a set. both can be purchased with tri bars. we sell these at our shop (***********.net) in ma, but i'm sure you can get them locally alot cheaper as both companies are located in ca.

Speedway has them including this kit to add them on to existing headlight buckets.

Speedway also has Guide style lights which are very popular. Here is my own personal opinion...I don't like turn signals any where near the head lights as you can't see them at night on coming. It has always been big problem with me. I understand why they do it new cars because it's easier for them to put it all in one place. As soon as I can make new side hood panels for my hot rod the turn signals will be mounted there in the old light fixtures that were on the top of the '46 headlight buckets (these were running lights I think). Should be able to see them well from the front and from the side. I have the same problem with little tiny hidden tail lights. I want the guy behind me to KNOW I'm stopping!
Any way good luck with your build!

What gave me the idea was the May / June Summit racing catalog cover , there is a 32 Highboy and a model A coupe both have turn signals in the headlights and are up high in the headlight not in the center near the headlight bulb.

I simply used the old buckets and changed the running light(located high up in the bucket) socket to a double filiment 1157.

I have a set of these headlights on my T-Bucket. I found, as mentioned above, that others could not see the turn signal at night with the headlights on (as I approached an intersection with the turn signal lights on, I found cars waiting on me to clear the intersection even though they could have safely gone on through ahead of me).

So I went for a simple solution and bought a set of separate turn signal lamps and housings and mounted those. Others can now see the turn signal when the headlights are on. I converted the internal headlight bucket lamps to parking lamps. These actually look nice when turned on - a soft yellow light inside the headlight bucket during twilight runs or when parked. I've got it wired so that these internal parking lamps are off when the headlights are on - you don't need them and they are hard to see with the headlight on. I've received compliments on the setup and appearance.

Recently saw a streetrod sitting at a light at night with those integral headlamp/turn signal lights. I could not see the turn signals until he had turned enough so the headlamps were not aiming at me. They may look neat during the day, but you cannot see them at night when your lights are on.
