    I've been looking at and considering them for my '77 LT. When I read the install document, it sounded like the main issue would be the wiring interface to the factory harness. Having to do the individual wires of the cluster to the body harness. I wondered why they didn't have an adapter plug to do that? How'd it all work out for you?

    Thanks,
    FS87LT

    Your right it did take a bit to sort out the wiring to the harness. I did pull individual pins from the adapter plug just so that i did not ruin it in case i want to go back. I have run the gauges for about 4 years now and they work perfectly. Could not be happier....

    I’m really sucking at updating the page, The trunk jam, quarters, roof, pillars and driver door jamb have been stripped epoxied and Primered. I still need to do some work on the driver quarter panel behind the wheel.

    I’ve been fixing some rust on the bottom of my driver side door and fixing dents and dings. Right now I’ve been wiping filler and glaze and blocking it down. Next comes the passenger door.

    I had some gift cards to Amazon that I earned using my works health insurance app so I treated myself to more cool parts to put in the pile of parts for after body work. Just another reason for me to stay motivated. These will look awesome.

    Don’t really feel like this is enough progress that’s worthy of posting but I guess I should keep up with this post more often. I’ll do my best to stay on top of it. Thanks for checking back with me.

    Looking good! Getting closer with every step. I was starting to wonder where you were on this.

    I dont think you can post too much, I look at posting as a order f which I did things. If I need to go back, I can search my thread and find something. Also a nice backup of pictures. I backup on cloud, on pc, and on here. :)

    Yeah I kept saying I needed to update and then I’d forget or something. I don’t really have a good working computer anymore so it’s all done on the phone and that’s alittle but harder at times to make a big post. It’s slow going but I’ve taken care of several things I didn’t see in the past.

    That’s a good point. I have done that in the past. I guess the repetition of what I’m doing of having to start over seems boring and just a drag lol

    I really like the light, most of the aftermarket things don't really go with the car.

    Yeah man I don’t like a lot of the modern lights for older cars. These head lights keep a classic look with a crazy upgrade in the light output. I’m excited to use them.
