  Step 1: Go to oreilly auto parts ( other parts store may work as well)

  Step 2: part number #4412a 

                          Headlights will fit 521's, 620's, 510's, almost any datsun. They are yellow Wagner brand offroad lights.... 

Step 3: remove grill and original high beams

  Step 4: cut off the connectors for each high beam

  Step 5: install round connector to each wire... 1 positive and 1 negative for each headlight.... 

                          connector looks like this.....
                                      
                                            
                           you need the biggest hole one of these you can find at auto parts store...

   Step 5: screw both wires onto each headlight...  positive and negative wont matter....

   Step 6: insert headlights, screw down headlight bezels, and re install grill 


         now you have sweet headlights in your datsun!!! Like me :)

I am tempted but why do you have to cut wires?  Are these yellow bulbs not seal beam with standard fittings on the back?

you have to cut the wires because the headlights are universal and fit anything with that size bulb... they are offroad lights made by wagner... but even after you install connectors they fit back on the stock headlights.... 

  Headlights are $11 a piece...

Yellow fog lights off a  mercedes benz fit the grill of my datsun 620

If you live near a junkyard, head over there and you should find a few. I am not sure the model or year. I found like 3 pairs at the junkyard and paid $3 each. Good luck!!!! If you live near San Pedro, Ca. I am willing to sell or even trade a pair.
