    Looking for ideas/pics of tail lights on hot rods running a 32 chassis. I did a search but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for so maybe some one out there remembers if there is one, or if not then maybe I will just edit the title and turn this into one.. Thanks Ryan

    I know 3rd brake lights are not traditional fare...
    but IMO, I like the fact that a car 2 back of you might see it in time...
    not a tail light but I intend to use one of these Cadillac dome, trunk or plate lights as a 3rd brake light on my '30 Sportster's trunk ...
    paid $10.00 the pair...
    going to use red dye-chem to convert the clear lens to red... also will grab a couple red LED T10, 194 bulbs... 3rd barakie.jpg

    My taillights are actually big truck cowl lights. I replaced the clear leans with BlueDot Pontiacs and rewired for dual element bulb. The diaperpin clip is temporary, I'll have to make a proper pin for it. The forward facing red lense can't be see from the front and theres just a dull red glow in that area (the lamp faces rearward and not much light bleeds thru) 031.JPG 007.JPG 008.JPG , the tire hides the source.

    paint the inside of the bucket gloss white , it will reflect the element's light everywhere...
    brightens the light a lot...
