Bonjour!!!

I was wondering if I was the one of the only few french dude on the forum!! Mine is a '78 that comes from California too, I bought it there when living in CA and could not resist to bring it back to France with me!! I hope we could help each other, finding parts is harder here than in the US....
Where are you located in France?

Hello,

I'm from Nantes, in the west of France. I just have finished the restoration of the engine and haven't keeping back the car from the bodybuilder yet. I didn't understand the problem with the pictures because I have followed the instruction ......

+1. Leave them on. They are far more visible and add to your safety margin compared to the small European markers. While at it, they can be wired up to flash along with the bumper markers as turn signal indicators.
