Series headlamp surrounds on Defender

Elips

Accelerating Away
Do series III headlamp surrounds fit on Defender? Those original plastic ones use only two (of four) fixing points around the headlamp. Could I fit series headlamp surrounds by simply inserting two extra plastic rectangular thingys into two unused slots and then fitting the surround with four self-tappers?
 
Yes, unless you have military lamp retainers, but why would you want to fit them? The standard black plastic Defender surrounds don't get stone chipped like the paint on Series wings.
 
I like the retro-look of the old headlamp surrounds.

Does anyone knows the part no. of those plastic thingys?
 
like this? fitted behind perspex covers and then wire mesh light guards. i put blanking plugs in the redundant holes (the sort used to cover screw heads on flat pack furniture.)
