    This has been done before. This is my version of the mod.

    Here is a quick and easy mod for a remote headlight adjuster.
    Parts needed:
    JB Weld or similar epoxy
    Black can of Plastic Dip
    10mm socket
    12"or longer flex extension 1/4 0r 3/8 will do. Shown here are two 8" extensions JB'd together
    Thumb ratchet again 1/4 or 3/8
    Small hose clamp

    Steps:
    Attach thumb ratchet to extension. Dip this end into Plastic Dip and then let dry. I find multi coats works the best. This will do a few things. 1. It will secure the connection between the two 2. Stop the thumb ratchet from ratcheting 3. Makes it look good.
    Clean the 10mm socket and headlight adjustment bolt. Brake clean or acetone works well.
    JB Weld the socket to the bolt. Let the epoxy set up over night.
    Feed the flex extension thru the steering ring and lower loop on the column.
    Pop the extension into the socket.
    Mock up hose clamp to the lower loop and extension. Make notice where the clamp makes contact with the liner of the flex extension. Remove the extension and cut the liner so it can rotate freely when clamped.
    Reinsert the extension and connect to the socket. Install the clamp. Tight enough to hold the extension in place but loose enough to allow it to rotate.

    How much did that cost you over all?

    It cost about $40 for the:
    Plastic Dip
    Set of three thumb ratchets (1/4, 3/8.and 1/2 in a package)
    Two packs of flex extensions each with one 1/4 and 3/8 extension
    Two single 10mm sockets

    This makes two adjusters. One 1/4 and one 3/8 drive.
