Every year car is slightly different so guessing you didn't tie down a dash ground. That might correct some of your problems. On the headlight problem: Did you connect up the high/low bean switch on the floor. Think I'd check around in that area. Easiest way, but not the safest, is to tie the 2 purple wires together that went to the NSS. Problem is your car will start in any gear. I'm assuming you are putting in a manual trans and not just a floor shifter.

Dumb me. If I would have looked at your name I would have figured out you have a 72. Chase one thing at a time. On your headlights, open the hood and pull the left headlight socket off. Pull the headlight switch on. Measure the green wire to ground. Measure the brown wire to ground. Hit the high/low switch on the floor. You should have power on one of the wires in one position and power on the other wire in the other position. See how that part goes.
