Thanks man, I'll try to keep it entertaining! Doing some more thread catch up:

Made a Napa run, replaced all the bulbs in the dash, and cleaned all the ground connections. Nice results, will have to pick up some orange needle paint to refresh the gauges.

This is damn sexy.

I'm not really surprised that all 4, yes 4, headlights were blown. Checked connections, wiring, voltage, and grounds. All 4..

Replaced the bulbs, ditched the eyebrows, and noticed I had parking lights until I turned the headlights on then the front parking lights went out.

Did some googling, and found it's a 64-67 "feature". 68 lights stay on. Moved the front parking lights wire to an unused slot mimicking 68 wiring on the headlight harness following internet and now they stay on.

The reverse light switch is not working, wired in a cheap light up duck bill switch under the dash. It'll stay till the drivetrain is swapped as it's not worth investing. It's ready to come off jack stands and go down the road.
