    Not trying to bore anyone and I'm surely wasting my money buying things when I should be getting the bodywork done on my Roadster (it looks like total sh!t), I usually put stuff on my instagram, maybe it'll pump someone up to get sh!t done in the garage, anyways, I had these Lyon wheel covers repaired and painted, came out pretty good, also mounted my SCTA badge on my dash and I'm going to mount some Hudson taillights soon.

    Looks fantastic. Love the Hudson tails lights. I think casny has them on his roadster? Hot rod or custom they look killer

    His look like they're frenched in, wow. Never noticed that till now. My fabrication/welding skills are very very low, I may just mount them on the lower panel.


    My buddy is going to help me with a decklid soon, when he has some free time, it kills me seeing it missing.

    Thanks for the inspiration photos, now I'm pumped.

    Heck yeah, I love the way T's look on top of 32 frames. Make sure to post pictures of your progress on the HAMB.



    Thank you, little by little I'm making it better.

    Yeah man you got this it’s just a hot rod ;)

    good excuse to see friends and make a mess. How much curve is there on the back of the light compared to the lower panel you want to bolt them to?

    maybe it’s possible to build a shim of sorts

    Yes, they are frenched in, only because the back of those taillights have a weird shape, almost twisted. Frenching them in, closed up all the gaps that would otherwise occur.
