The making of the headlamps follows my normal practice, but the fitting of them is new, in that they each sit into a shallow bowl formed in sheet copper between matched dies.  This is then soft soldered in place after the area in the fender apron has been opened up with rotary files.  The stem of the lamps fit into hollow posts attached to the front of the chassis frame
