Hey Carlos,
Sorry took so long to respond. Just returned from a trip to Cali.
Do a search on this site for LED lights. Myself and others posted. I love the Vintagecarleds they are simple plug and play. i posted pic's too.

Great job, Kris. I, for one, would love to know the details of your mods.

You can also use Stained glass paint on the inside of the lens - decide you don't like it a little lacquer thinner will remove it.
Oh sh*t -- It was rocket science!
That's how my brain works. It's not a perfect organ.

First make bucket even with headlight using the old pivot points and adjusters. about 3/8 s all around.
Than get a flexible measuring tape.Start center of the running light at the bottom and wrap all the way around on top of headlight should end up with 12 3/8 s
.Mark 6 1/8 and 18 1/4
3/8 down these are the pivot points.
Put locking nut and bolt in holes.
Pull out old pivot points
Put fake screw/ bolt in top adjustment
The bottom one I put the top spring and the bottom spring together wound them inside each other. Made the adjustment feel more solid.

Did do the garage test and the lights are still centered
Easy job
