I also have a 58 model and it's parking lights go out when the headlights
are on. Hey, it's good to see someone else with a late 50's model! I
don't see very many of them here around town. My 58 is a work in progress
(actually it's at a standstill right now until I get the funds together to
either rebuild the 223 that's in it or swap in a 300. Any suggestions on
which engine to use?

A while back there was a discussion about how to successfully build or buy a
voltage dropper. I need to try to run my 6 volt gauges on a 12 volt system on
my '52. Could someone point me in the right direction to do this? I am also
doing the wiring for the body and need to know if I need to use relays on my
headlights. I'm not much of an electrician so any help is apprectiated.
Actually they would be from the late 60's.
1965 and up to be precise. '64 had the 'inner' bumps.
Anyone have a pair of 16" inner bump rims?
I need two more to fill my set.

The rim is probably a Ford. I have a couple like that on my truck. They
are probably early 60's. I got a Ford hubcap to fit at Hub Cap City in San
Jose 408 280 6833. As I recall they had quite a few.
As I begin the treacherous wiring job, I need help. Where is a good place
locally to find terminal blocks? Instead of trying to get all the wires
arranged, I plan to clip them and run only the wires needed for my 57. IF
there is nowhere to get them locally, where is a good place to order some?
Radio Shack has screw terminal strips or in their catalog. Most Chevy
a 3 or a 4-wire strip they use on inner fenders for AD series (early 50's)
Try Ron Carter or American Classic for those.
