          The funniest thing is that I had a necklace just like that. I wore it when I rode my chopper stingray bike., circa 1968, I was 13... lol..

            Started working on getting the headlights going. Had to refurb some of the stuff. Wiring harness was in great shape for 50+ years. Anyone know where I can get the screws that hold the plastic bezels on? (3rd pic)

                Nevermind guys.. Lookie what I found. DUH! I do not remember having these. I had bead blasted them also. What an idiot! I've had a real problem finding parts for my car, not on the net, in my garage and house. I hide stuff from myself... I got the harness in and got the side lights going. Waiting on springs for the buckets now., and bulbs for the front turn lights.

                  Got the headlights done. Had trouble finding amber bulbs for the front turn signal/parking lights, so I made my own., but something is wrong with the wiring I guess because they aren't working. Figures, the last electrical thing I had to do would have problems.

                                Thanks, Me to.. Already worried about what to do with my spare time now. I have a few more plans for the car, like the hood and some other little things. May start working on the 512 motor, I can tell already that the stock 440 in it now isn't gonna be enough for me. But it's a good way for me to ease back into getting use to a fast car., raced other vehicles but no cars in about 40 years.
