When I disassembled my front clip and all the RS parts, I noticed the car had two different size (depth) Headlamp retainer rings.   These appear to be identical except for the depth, and both/either work fine.    One is approx. 13/16" deep, and the other is 1" deep.   Which of these are correct?   or did GM use both sizes interchangeably?   One corner of my car was hit before I bought it in the mid 70's, so I'm not sure if both these parts are original from the factory, OR not.  Your help greatly appreciated so I know which of these to replace.. Smiley   Photos are attached...
