    It's a unique and really amazing ride. Congrats on the rode trip too.

    what's the clips holding on the header wrap? Don't think I've seen those before?

    The clips came with this header wrap.

    Yeah, sure it was. You ever price parts for a beemer?

    That's only part of the reason that car was in the bone yard!

    I have never been completely happy with the headlights on the truck and decided to try out a different set. They are Model A reproductions and will be mounted near the wheels and will turn with the steering. They will also be positioned near the trucks original location when pointed straight ahead. Made the mounting brackets today.

    Started with a paper template.

    [IMG]20161122_111058 by Ben Modified, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Then cut the brackets out of a piece of scrap

    Painted the brackets and will install with the headlights tomorrow.

    I mounted the headlights today but am not happy with the way they look. Too far apart and too conservative.

    [IMG]20161123_084012 by Ben Modified, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Decided to play around with the original headlights again

    Also experimented with some motorcycle lights

    Possibly recessed into the nose at an angle following the body line

    [IMG]20161123_164503 by Ben Modified, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Any suggestions?
