    Not yet I’m thinking for safety reasons it will.

  3. ...................It's a tough decision for sure. So cool that it has survived all of these years without being altered, but I certainly get the safety aspect of your decision.

    My second tailight wasn’t added either. For safety sake I added two small motorcycle lights (kind of stole the idea from Lee Pratt’s ‘40) which give me three brake lights, plus turn signals. I don’t think they’re too obtrusive.

    I ran my coupe for years with only the one tail light. A guy followed me into work one day & was concerned that I had a tail light out. When we went to the rear of the '40 I acted surprised & said it looked like the whole light assembly had fallen off somewhere down the road & he suggested that we ought to go back & try to find it. I chuckled & told him a standard only came with one tail light. He gave me a strange look & shrugged his shoulders. I don't think he got it.

    I added two 12" LED strip lights under the car that are brake and turn signal. I was concerned about the taillights not being bright enough even with LED replacement lights. When I hit the brakes now you can see the car following me back off fairly quickly. If someone runs over the back of me now they aren't looking ahead. That might be an option for someone else that doesn't want to add the 2nd taillight.

    IMG_2642.JPG Finally got the brakes done on the coupe & we're back on the road again. Just in time for the Moonshine Festival in Dawsonville, Ga. There's a group of 6-8 old cars (mainly '40s) going up "dark early" Saturday morning. Hopefully the weather will be better than it was last year. IMG_2642.JPG

    Doug White's '41 Ford Pickup project, my '40 1/2 ton stake truck, and my '40 Ford coupe (with upside down bumper guards. Yeah...I'm too lazy to correct them)

    The hood / grille fit is perfect on the maroon truck !! I saw a previous pic using a floor jack etc to get the fit spot on. Later Bill

    I must have got there later than you fordnut40. The row of mostly 40s in front of the church had filled in more. Great turnout despite the weather.
