    Take the one off that you have and rotate it 180 degrees. The headlights only use half the gear.

    where can I get the metal gears
    Wouldn't just imagine if you just went to goggle and put in "trans am headlight metal gears" a wealth of knowledge would appear...? I bet so...maybe "Brent Franker" too ;-)
