Hello wonder if someone can help.

Need to switch my H4 headlights on my 1980 sc from RHD setup to LHD.  Can I get away with replacement lenses or will I need the whole shebang incl reflectors and assembly?  The whole lot looks darned expensive 😞

IIRC the difference is only the placement of the sidelights, so you can 'get away' with using the original reflectors.

Alternatively, providing this is a permanent change, look to swap your lights with someone who is going LHD to RHD.

The reflectors are the same lhd/rhd but they are oriented differently in the housing.

Just swapping the lenses isn’t enough.

From personal experience I did a RHD to LHD swap with just lenses. We have pretty stringent TüV based testing here and they passed with flying colours. 
It may well be that the car had passed  20 years of UK MOTs with LHD reflectors behind RHD lenses though. 😂

LHD units can be adjusted all the way so they point straight ahead, with the RHD lens on and the standard shyte 55watt bulb in them most places would pass an MOT
