Im half way through a 49 Hudson custom project.
Coming up to the electrics. Have an American Autowire Highway 22 kit for the bulk of the wiring.
Looking at upgrading the headlights from the old sealed beam 7" jobbies to say LED if possible. Keeping the original buckets and outer chrome trim ring but replacing everything else (lens/reflector/bulb/housing). Getting lens and reflector suited to LEDs.
The brief overview is that lights require standards markings, and you can not run a HID or LED bulb in headlamp designed for a halogen bulb. The other thing to take into consideration is that lights designed for LHD vehicles dip to the right (Away from the oncoming traffic), here in NZ you'll need lights that dip to the left to be away from the traffic.

kevinclancy: I have just joined the forum - I am converting my 1986 Honda City convertible to an EV (electric vehicle) I would love to correspond with anyone who has done an EV conversion here in NZ - I know there out there but right now I feel like I am all on my own
