I did it on our '82 urq a week after I bought it over 2 years ago.  I just
last month finally got around to upgrading the wiring and installing a
battery jump post from a 5ktq up near the shroud for the radiator.

When I purchased my single lense headlights, they were $500 total from
Shokan.  They are alot more now.  These are the slanted units that replace
the headlights and do not provide a big ugly yellow turn marker like a 4k.

I also had to replace my grill with a used unit out of a '85 -'87
4k/4kq/coupe, as well as the plastic spacers/trim pieces that are above and
below the headlights.  With the exception of the headlights themselves,
everything can come from the cars mentioned above.

I definitely updates the look of the car!

If you have specific questions, shot them my way and I will try to answer
