One of the fun parts was making the wing nut for the bezel closer. 0-080 Thread size.

Looks terrific. One of the most fun things is to try to figure out how to make something like that and then make it happen.

The Sunbeam 1018 headlight is complete. Painted it today and added the Sunbeam tags. Thank You Jack Bodenman for making the tags and for all your inspiration with all the little details you make. Thank you everyone else for your kind comments.
