First of, thanks guys for trying to help!! Sorry for not being clear its a mix of English being my second language and my lack of mechanical stills!!

I did found a few ideas online to fix my light issue which I will attempt this evening...

Lets start over:

1 - This is the red wire that was chewed and the inner wire exposed:

I "fixed it" with electrical tape.

2 - Headlight bucket that was damaged by the rust. The retainer is gone and its wobbly from being held by one retainer. I had a rough time getting that retainer screw out, there was lost of rust around that part. There is no more metal to hold the light firmly in place.

3 - This is the heat shield #15 / part C33567. It goes under the hood where the vents are. It's weird because it sits directly over the exhaust and blocks the exhaust fumes from going through the hood vents. You can't really access the headlight when its on.

4 - This is the electrical thing i just got to check if there is current as in power or voltage? ;)

I read about the grounding issue so if there is power going to the headlight, I will clean up around the headlight retainer clips. I got some wiring and will try some thing like this:

It's usually called a multimeter because you can measure voltage (volts), current (amperes/amps), and resistance (ohms). Set the middle dial to point to upper left 20 volts, that is selecting the range of measurement. The red and black wires like in the picture below. Then you touch the black pointy lead to the negative of the battery, or a good clean metal point on the chassis, and the red pointy lead to where you think should be 12 volts. May as well first test it on the battery "plus" and "minus".

Eugen how did you know I had no clue how to use it lol!!!

Today was productive, I was able to check the wiring and that was not the issue. I cleaned up around the lights / retainers and installed a ground wire and they worked!!

I also cleaned up my heat shield and gave it a coat of paint. The bottom part is pretty thin but it will do for now.

I did find a "full kit" online that included the shield, the bottom bracket and a pair of the what I was calling "hood wings" but they're actually called extenders. Its the # 16 and 17 on the parts picture i posted.
