thats a nicely done cafe right thurr

question though... the X'd out headlight looks cool and all... but why? why is it X'd out? ive seen this a lot, and i guess it's probably because they did it back in the day... but why? does it serve any purpose?

Find a wiring diagram and I can help you go through it.

Or look into something aftermarket. There's gotta be something out there.
