Okay, I figured out the headlight thingy. First, take 2 tired, beat up 36' Plymouth buckets.

Remove the original mount on the bottom. That took hours to do just one!

Order some EMPI baja headlight assemblies

Realize that they are too big to fit in the 36' opening

Cut them down

Slip them inside

Mock up the headlight ring

And realize it looks pretty dang close to my AutoCAD layout.

Not bad for 6 hours. Now I have to start on the other one and fab up inner mounts for the buckets and assorted other things. I have 2 tiny LED bulbs for turn signals being mounted on the bottom of the trim rings too.
