Very impressive restoration. Did you paint the fresh air controls ?

Is there such a thing as wire envy?

I see 9 prong box in the works. Is it one from WW? Are you planning on emergency flashers too? Do share you plans about the emergency switch.

Thank you guys.

@CiderGuy No I did not paint them I just took em out of the box.

@Nicolas Yes this is the WW 9 prong box. Here in Germany every car need to have emergency flashers to get it on the road even if the car had none from the factory.

The reason why I used the 9 prong box is because I "forgot" to drill an additional hole into the dash for the switch Rolling Eyes ... but somehow I dont want to drill one because for me there is no perfect place for an additional switch.

So now my plan is to mount the smallest possible switch under the dash - means the 66/67 one but they are quite expensive if you even get one. I had no one for testing so I used a later one (111 953 235 A) and just bought the knob from Chad:

I am finished with the wiring now and just need to rebuild the headlights.

The trim for license plate housing is a stainless steel. I think I bought it from ISP West some years ago. Needed some time to get it into position but I think all together its a good reproduction.

Short addition...

These are the knobs I have. Second from left is the one from Chad. The right one is the one which came with the switch.

I just had to make a new rosette in M12 because I could only find M10 and M14 in the internet.

Made some progress with the headlights in the last days.

The lowlight rings fit quite good except of one section on the driver side. I think I have not many options because in this section there has been some welding and soldering so the shape is not as excact as original. But all together I think the result is "okay":
