      I would look into led strip lights for such a conversion. Eliminates the need for an interior bulb housing and can be patched into existing park or blinker wiring.

        aeon280's idea is a good one. I also think the '70 lights would fit & work, fyi

        You can purchase long strips like 24" and they have indents where they can be cut every 6 inches. I also have some that may work for you. let me know the measurement of the lenses and Ill see if they will fit under them. If they will fit Ill just send you a couple.

        You just solder a + and - Wire to the contacts where it is cut.
