All right.

This project won't be easy as my Caddy is not only my first Caddy. It's my first US car, so this definitely will be a challenge. Any help will be more than welcome.

Bought it here, in Uk but it wasn't cherished. Not at all. It drives well and brakes well. Engine is sweet as nut but I have some oil leaks.

Currently trying to tydying up electric part as plenty thing are not working or are just messed up.

Started from replacing battery, remanufacturing…

63 Caddy inner hi beams don't turn on. The car has the photo eye, outer lights turn on when I hit the floor switch the hi beams go on for the outer lo beams headlights but the inner headlamps stay off. Any ideas? I just picked up this car and except for this and an exhaust leak she's a beauty!
