You had better get some turn signals in the front of your car after you do the front nose conversion.  I was a bit lucky when I did this because I had two extra turn signals off my parts car to work with.  My original ones on my car are now being used to support the front metal covers in front of each headlight.  If you cant get a hold of any extra ones, just support your cover in front of your head lights with something else.  Remove the turn signals by unscrewing the two mounting screws and pull  them off  your car. 

 

I relocated my two turn signals on the bottom of the front bumper, underneath the license plate holder.  In this location they are in line with the contour lines of the hood, head light covers, and driving lights, forming a "V" in front of the car.  It looks pretty good.  See the picture below (although you cant see the hood lines):

(Just a note about the picture: I did repaint the front to cover all the factory red paint showing in this picture.)

I was able to mount the signals there by cutting off the front edge or lip, of each turn signal with the Dremel.  This makes the front of them flat so they can be mounted flush to the mating surface.  See the graphic below to see what I'm talking about.

Now that the signals are ready to be mounted, you need a place to put them.  I cut holes below the license plate on either side, about half the length of the orange visible part of the turn signal.  The area where I mounted them is the perfect height for the turn signals.  You can cut these out very easily with a sharp utility knife.  Be sure to always cut away from any part of your body incase the knife slips.  Place the signals in their new home and simply secure the signals with two sheet metal screws from the bottom.   Be sure to drill pilot holes for the screws or the plastic of the signal will crack.....  actually a better word would be "shatter" as old as these parts are. 

All you got left is to extend the wires of your light bulb sockets to the signals by splicing in some new wire.  There are only three wires for each socket so this is pretty easy.  When you run the new wires down to the new location, keep the wires away from the head light motors and parts that move in that location.  Be sure to solder  each wire tape it or use heat shrink tubing so you wont have any problems later on.

Now your legal, and wont cause accidents.
