More light

I got the wiring and the accessories to hook up the road lights. The bezel is a reproduction piece and the toggle switch is from the local electronics shop. I hope te masters of originality will forgive me...

Headliner the fourth

Kind of hard to get good lighting in the car but here's the headliner finished with the sunvisors installed. As said eralier, I am hopeful that the remainig wrinkles will go away with a little heat. It was kind of tricky to find the holes for the sunvisor base plates under the vinyl but I managed. Mirror base and stem was media blasted and turned out very well.
What's left of the headliner.

Inside job

Trying out the door panel on the passenger side door. Looks like it will fit well, I will have to wait untill the window is adjusted. Gatorgrain vinyl top can also be seen in this pic.

Headliner the third

The headliner looks much better now. There are stoll some wrinkles and creases but I'm hoping they will go away over time.

I had the stem and the base of the mirror mediablasted, mounted back in place.

Headliner the second

Since I wasn't completely satisfied with the wrinkles in the headlliner I yanked it out again and ...ironed it. Best way to get wrinkles out of fabric.

Let there be light

I had to search quite a while to find new headlights, finally got a pair from Bosch.

Wiring question?

Trying to figure out where all the wires go...

Two of these go to the ignition coil but what about the rest?

Making head

I tackled another job I've been reluctant to begin with - installing the headliner. It had been folded up way too long so there are still a lot of creases in it. I'm trying to tighten it but it's quite chilly in the garage so I'll probably have to apply a little heat by putting an oven in the car...
The edges have not yet been trimmed.
