I wanted to add turn signals to my 1953 CJ-3B, and use the original parking light fixtures. I found replacement double contact sockets made for GM at my local auto parts store. They were less than $5.00. Part number 85807, CONDUCT-TITE sold by Dorman products. By cutting off the back part of the original turn signal fixture, I was able to install the new socket. I then MIG welded the socket to the fixture in a few spots to help hold it together and provide a good ground connection.
Thanks to Don for a neat upgrade idea. -- Derek Redmond
