    Alright, here's something for anyone to seriously check out: Google micro LED turn signals for motorcycles - saw these on goblin works garage tv show, insanely bright and look really cool with their bullet shaped housings (and lots of other styles too) some of these look no larger than a nut/bolt combo. Even found some micro finned lens bullet style lights from Krator on Amazon that have a really neat look to them and would match the grill bars. Think of mounting some of these in the screw holes behind your grill, hell, you could modify these to mount them in the headlight stanchons - but they'd look awesome even bolted on the stanchons themselves. Now I gotta consider this for myself. This looks awesome.

  5. I don’t care for them either but they don’t seem to teach young drivers what hand signals are any more.

    You'd be surprised how much light can be bounced off the road from under the car with some big bright LEDs hidden up in the fender wells.

    Do they still make Visibolts? If they do, that would work. Just replace a couple of bumper bolts with visibolts and you're good to go.

    Now a days these tiny LED lights are bright as hell and really small. I'd put them on the back of your mirrors when you get some. They're so small you'd hardly see then when they were off. Would be easy to hide the wire too. I do like the inside the headlight option also. Really digging your car as well. Good luck.

    That's a good idea. I just don't think if I owned it I would put a bumper on it. But that's just me.;)

    Not a fan of the motorcycle style lights. Always looks like an after thought. There's got to be something that looks more period correct. The fog light idea sound good. The Guide light is cool also but your lights look great so why change them. If you do use them I agree wit @pprather paint them black.
