Way to go Bob!!

To answer your question, the usual answer you would give is "if it was good
enough for GM engineers ... " But, I think if you are going to give it a lot of
road time the sealed beams would be a great advantage. I never thought I would
hear you say should I "stay stock?"

All The Best!
