Question H4s headlight install (pic)

I've searched through the forum, but found nothing that helped me on installing H4s (I'm sure I missed something). I just picked up these H4s and I have no clue how to install them. I have a pic of the H4 and the SC headlight assembly, but I'm kindof at a loss. Can someone please point me in the direction of either some instructions or something that can help me?

Also, there are "clips" that came with this and I'm at a loss there also, HELP!

Matt, the entire assembly is held onto the fender with just one screw.

Matt,

Something about that pic isn't right ... I get the feeling you have parts from two different assemblies there! Looks like the reflector, alone, from an H4 assembly ... and the rear sealed-beam mont from a USA assembly! See diagram below ... #16 above, and inner part of the unlabeled reflector below!

Either that or perhaps a non-OEM H4 conversion. I have a set from Hella that came with a pair of reflectors (and bulbs) that fit in a USA sealed beam bucket on my BMW 2002.

Thanks Pat, I got em in last night. The part on the right was the "old" SC housing which I thought I was still supposed to use (obviously not). They are in now, but I'm not sure where to get a can of touch-up spray paint for the rings.

Anybody know?

Aurora is a in reality suburb of Denver on the east side. Officially it's a seperate city but you never leave one to get to the other. I'm on the est edge of Aurora and it's about 20-30 minutes from downtown and just south of the airport.

If you come out let me know. Perhaps we can get a few of the Pelicans together. Matt and I actually live about 2 minutes from each other and met up through the board when one of us needed help.

Matt, I ordered some paint from www.towerpaint.com (they mix cans to match) and you've seen the results. You could probably got to a dealership and get a small touch up spray can.

I checked a dealership and they said they cant get spray touchup paint

I've seen this website for touchup paint also:
http://levineautoparts.com/spraycanofto.html

Cliff, Pat and I have done a few engine drops together on each of our cars. We're getting pretty good at it now. If you come out, we can hang out and talk P-cars!
