Thanks for the input! This is what I went with along with a single motorcycle light on each spindle (not in photos). I installed an amber led in the lower sockets of the vw buckets also. These lights along with the lights in the bull horns will serve as running lights as well as blinkers. As an added benefit, the headlights actually meet the minimum height requirement in my state.

I hafta agree with all their comments, I just can't come up with anything except what I said near the beginning of this build, it's tough for me to watch any of those build videos without a little bit of drool coming out of both sides of my mouth
That's how you can tell I'm a level headed worthless nut, the nut part is an Ohio joke

Been finishing up the hood for the Single Cab. I have added two heat vents to help push the heat from the engine compartment. With the different mods, in 90 degree heat, it was running between 180 and 185 with a 180 thermostat. Still have a lot of sanding to do, but its getting there. I spayed a light coat of primer to keep it from rusting instantly

Loving the new transmission and high stall convertor. I was going thru a curve at about 30, stood on the gas and the convertor allowed the engine to get right into the power band. Broke those big rear tires loose and got some much needed side ways action!
