  • Texcwa,
    I have the turn signals that mount on my fenders and are not LED so the 3 prong flasher I have works with my led tail lights. If I were to replace them to be LED I will have a problem as you suggest.

    My cowl lights i plan plan on using as running lights at this point. I did not think of using them as turn signals as you did. If I had know this I would have welded up the holes before I had my fenders powder coated.

    thanks for the help with the low oil pressure. As discussed that piston and spring seem to be in good shape.

    I will drain the oil and see if there is an issue with it. I have too much according to my dip stick and that may show a larger issue.


    • Merry Christmas and I hope everyone has a wonderful new year. May all your projects go smoothly this coming year.

              • Well it has been a very long time since my last post.

                I finally got the headliner in. Took two of us 4 hours. Definitely a two person job unless there are tricks I was not aware of.

                In the process I discovered the upper windshield trim piece still needs to be painted.

                • Merry Christmas to everyone.

                  May you and your families be healthy in the coming year and for those recovering from something already may it be quick.

                  I would also like to wish that everyone’s project moves forward without any unforeseen hiccups.


                  • Thank you for the Christmas wishes, and here’s to a good and productive New Year.
                    Also, thank you for all the time you took to take photos and post them for posterity- will help others with similar ideas.
