                              Absolutely worth the effort! The car and the "little girl" that asked to be driven out in same. Why finishing the restoration became so important in the end. Started with "therapy" after losing her Sister Jennifer and kicked into high gear when the youngest wanted to be driven out to the alter in the Bee.

                                I found myself in the same situation today with repop front turn signals and repop front bumper. I had to bend the mounting hole ears as you did to get the screws to line up with the bumper holes. I also applied dielectric grease to the connectors.

                                Thanks for your help, Wayne.

                                  Sorry.. had to go to camp and didn't get to this. You'd be best to ask elsewhere.. I have 6-32's x 1/4 in the Bee and self tapping #6 screws in the Bird. Don't know which is correct.

                                  I bought the 6-32 x 3/8 and they work. They don't carry 6-32 x 1/4 at my local hardware store. 10-32 x 1/4, yes. Go figure. Looking at your photos I see I am missing the plastic cover you tape on the column. Any chance they repop those?
