Converting my 69 GTO to hideaways, am I missing anything?

I always loved the looks of the hideaway headlights and wanted to add them to my GTO since it wasn't 100% original anyways. I have tried to order everything needed. I tried to find a site that would list everything needed but came up short. The below list is everything I have ordered, if you notice anything missing please let me know. All parts have been purchased through OPGI.

I just picked up a 68 with the hideaways. Love the look, but they don't work on the car I have. I don't have the patience to mess with the vacuum, so I'm picking up an electric kit once I can justify it. It could be an easy fix, so maybe I'll give it a quick look before condemning the system.

Please keep this tread going with your progress. I might learn something in the process to figure out how to fix mine.

Thanks but the list I have above is everything I've already ordered, I'm just looking for any parts that I might have missed. If I find that I am missing a part, I will check with you and see if you have the part before I order a new part.

By the way I'm in Issaquah, I'm still getting my footing up here in this state, haha

Yes sir I got the headlight mount brackets.

But the buckets are something I have yet to find or understand. I wasn't sure if I could just use the ones that are used on the car now (non-hideaways) or If I need to find new buckets, which buckets I could use or needed to find.
