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
