In other Wagon action..... closed up all the rear holes on the trunk from the 74..... intending to have just a pair of bolt lights illuminating the license plate, and just the model emblem on the right.
Looking good Andy !
I was worrying about those holes , I wasn't sure if you were going to fix them on not.
I hope you'll do the same to the side marker lights too and install sexy round little turn signals instead.

Door card holding brackets were in horrible shape.

I couldn't find replacement ones anywhere.
One day day I was in Home Depot and accidentally I found these things.
They are aluminum tile ends and they look almost identical to the original ones.

Image

I cut them to size and riveted them to the doors.

Image

This is the original

Image

And this one is not

As you can see - no difference .
