    need lights and turn signals to get out and about.theres a stretch in the evenings now still bright at 6pm.ive allways been looking for bed roll indicators to fit the bed.rolls are 1 1/8 internal came across these repeater lights,theres a few leds in there.dont know if they will be bright enough.if not ill just use the amber lens and fit a 23 w bulb in there.time will tell.https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/30mm-side-repeaters .

    at the front going to try amber 23w bulbs in the headlight units.if these don't workout ill have to fit conventional indicators all round as well https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/satin-black-bullet-stalk-indicators-69mm

    Hey Chris- Mar-K sells a bed roll light. I don't know how much they are or how good, but I know they have them.

    eric they have them all right ,im not sure if they have them to suit the 38 bed roll size.i have purchased these.they will need to be sleeved to suit the bedroll.the lens is approx. the correct overall diameter.if its not bright enough I will have to put a 21 w led bulb behind the lens.

    back working on the truck today.ciarain called to help.first job was to remove the green stripe hose to investigate the leak.problem was the reinforcing wire was sticking out through the hose..luckily I had a new one ,boiled it up and replaced it.need to get some more anti freeze tomorrow and top it up.next started on the fender welts.loosly bolted up the rear driver side fender.half way through it pissed dowm cold rain,some things never change.no pictures today we were rained off .it was great to see a fender on..till the next day.

    I think a J.J. Correy Gael would be a better choice.
    looks good Chris!

    headlights working,fitted the 38 truck repro taillights, homemade minimal st brackets fitted led bulbs nice bright lights all round turn signals are next.back in 38 it doesn't seem there was a requirement for stop lights or turn signals.this truck is getting both.plus hazards and fenders with some marker lights near the front corners. at the front.the headlight are too far from the edges. for safety on narrow roads in the dark.be safe be seen.
