Headlight hinge brackets

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Is it possible to super glue the hinges for a temporary fix

depends where snapped off, if just the round knobbly sticky out bit then clean it up and add a round section of bolt?
