Ford Model A Pickup Restoration September 2014

I must shift (once again) :-( my planned driving on the road which I wanted to do this year. The whole September I was working on several small parts, I've spent more time than planned.

They are white LED turn signals and the orange color can only be seen when the light is blinking. It is a 6V flasher which are normally mounted on small motorbikes.
