Great progress.  You are about a year ahead of me in my restoration so your well documented progress is very helpful.

Thanks Frank I got it covered. I run additional ground wire for all lamps unless impeccable continuity to ground.    :)

Russ, Glad you see some value in my compulsive rambling.

Hi Frank

I assume you mean the vacuum valve. Had to do something.  I need to pass a one time inspection and the windshield wiper has to be functional. The only other solution would be electrical and that just wouldn’t be right.  Actually the exterior on/off valve would possibly be OK for inspection but still not correct for the car.  The aquarium air valve fits the 3 ‘F’ test. Form - close, Fit - acceptable, Function - right on. Can’t beat the price.
Cheers, Chet

Ted, I’m not sure about the home stretch but certainly rounding the last lap.

Almost finished with all the Mechanical Work.

Making good progress  :)
Many Thanks go out to Rich, < 29plycoup > for a headlamp plug to finish off my lights. 
Quite a job getting the lights setup properly.  Especially with 91 year-old parts.
