    Yep but only if you are good at fiberglass and body work. That outfit is real hit or miss on what you get from them. There are several outfits that sell the flip fronts for '55s, if you're not a body...

    If you know a positive TDC then you should be able to verify the light. On the other side I agree with some others here - just don't use the dial back portion of the light, set it on zero and set...
