Hello. We've had the car since April and have been working on some odds and ends. The story is the car was restored 10 years ago. They did a great job but like every car there are a few gremlins. we had some electrical work to do, general used car maintenance baseline, and to make the car our own.

Have done quite a few little projects. One I have been real happy with is the Led Instrument lights.I could not see the dash at night except for the aftermarket 3 gauge cluster. the original bulb holders had rusted and the incandescent bulbs we're old. I decided to do green leds and new cluster bulb holders. it took me a while to find 5/8 bulb holders that would work in the dash but after 3 different sets I got ones that worked. happy with the results.
