It's my understanding that the flag is always to be pictured with the stars on the upper left side of the image as you did on your passenger side rear door.

Your drivers side rear door would be wrong.

I could mistaken on this. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Cool Re: SOONERCRUISER's Panel Van Conversion

Jerry it's my understanding that the flag should be displayed as if it were heading into battle or leading the way. Think of it hanging from a flag pole and how it would flow in the wind.

Thanks guys.

I stand corrected. You're never to old to learn something new. Although I am to old for almost everything else.

Now that I've learned my new thing for today, can I go back to bed now?

But now that you learned something new, what did you have to forget to make room for the new knowledge



Hopefully not toilet aiming skills

Your wife might have something to say about that

Some bad news from UPS in Spain today.
I researched the Tracking number, as it was shipped last week.
Customs has sent the Morette headlight bezels shipment "Back to Sender"!
Apparently some information required for Customs was NOT PROVIDED BY THE SHIPPER!

MORETTE PT HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY:




OK! So, as the Morette headlight assembly is finally on it's way again, I am beginning to conjure up plans and goals.

1. I do not know the exact dimensions of the headlight and turn signal holes.
So, ordering them will wait until the assemblies arrive.
But, I have already saved MANY links to headlights and turn signal lights.
My goals are twofold:
a. To use the OEM headlight connectors as is; even if and adapter is required. ("Simplicity)
(Just in case going backwards is required in the future.)

b. To have a sealed beam Halo headlights for Low Beam; and Halogen Projectors for High Beam.
2. DOT required side markers and reflector:
If I can, I would like to incorporate the side marker/turn signal into the side of the Morette assembly.
I am having a little trouble finding something that is both small enough, and aesthetically compatible for the profile of the Morette assembly.
There are lots of 3/4 inch and 2 inch round lights. And there some nice larger 3 inch+ smoked side markers that I could mount behind the front wheel.
But, here is my favorite so far - 2 inches wide, and could be incorporated into the side of the assembly.



I am also researching an amber front side reflector. This will likely be a curved one, mounted at the trailing edge of the front wheels on the fender, like all the new MOPARs have. I would grind the reflector/light flat enough to simply mount with 3M mounting tape. As, I do not want to cut extra holes in my body!

Already discovered my first mistake...ordering the lights shape I liked!
I should have looked closer at the description!
They look arrow shaped. But, that's just the side view of a "beehive" light!
