Next thing I had to do was signal lights for the buckets.

12-06-2012 03:57 AM MORE HEADLIGHTS
I got the headlight plates welded up and rough ground. I couldn't reach inside the passenger's side to planish so I cut out the bucket holes for access.

Then I thought , what the heck, lets have a little sneak preview of how she'll look with the lights in place. I turned down some stainless nuts on the lathe for easy welding into the headlight plate rim.

I popped in the headlights and they seem to fit the fenders quite nicely.

I went to work on the passenger side headlight plate next.
Everything fit good.

11-30-2012 04:07 AM HEAD LIGHT PLATES
I made up another headlight plate for the drivers side with a wider flange so I could have the weld further back from the first plate that I had to cut off.

Then I made up a jig to keep both lights vertical and true to each other.

I started by getting the drivers side tacked in first.

A few more pics of the opening rim.

The last pic shows how I'd like to finish the top of the rim.
