As regards to the lower headlight removal, from memory 2nd edition ADR's had heights (min & max) for headlamps.
It probably would have been the DMT in 1982.

May be the driver of it at the time will let us all know the rego, he is on the foram and travells down to Junee at times, I will leave it there.
