small update, fair amount of pissing around to get this far though. small details are always over looked ay!

so another mod for the mot to meet uk regulations, side lights a correct dipping headlights, so 4 new headlights 2 with sidelights. and always the way, lets try to fit something somewhere that doesnt normaly fit, the answer GRINDER TIME!

normal headlight holder, black marker is where the side light in teh headlight hits on the holer. so i cut it out, fabriacted a rolled bottmo and rear section then welded it up.

sorry for confusion pics are a combo of the left and right sides

still need to grind the inner side out, will have to get some bits for my dremel for this. will do for mot until i hook them back out and blast them and get them coated so can do the lot at once

new headlights, with side light, i had to cut a bit out of the headlight cup to get the light to fit in
'59 chevy apache all draggin no baggin - Page 2 DSC_0268
'59 chevy apache all draggin no baggin - Page 2 DSC_0270

cup in the holder, finaly can see how it all lines up and fits

boom boom pow headlight in with side lights
'59 chevy apache all draggin no baggin - Page 2 DSC_0272

mot date is in mind and not far away. just need to put the lights in, the wiring is all in place and it all works, just need to have a play with the indicators then all done

not done much recently, got a spare few hours today so me and day got to work in the bed, cut all the bolts out holding the slats in, got teh braces off the wings to cross members and took those out. looks much better already. cant go crazy as registration isnt complete yet. until then ile keep cracking with teh small jobs, next up is the wheel tubs out and mock up the rear end notches and collect the bits to get the rear end on the floor.
