    Been running Ford truck tail lights until I find some thing better.

    There were 70s side marker lights cut in the old short tail pan that had to go :rolleyes:

    Didn't want to cut holes in my "turtle deck", so just mounted some "A" tail lights I had kicking around, underneath... 20200620_161241.jpg

    I could always go with Model A’s as well. The plan on my ‘48 F1 is going with a custom grille , running boards so I would like the taillights to show a custom touch as well.

    1949-50 Lincoln tails look good on a number of cars, and are not too common.

    I made these brackets that mount 50 Pontiac tail lights with a couple center caps from some old 5 spoke wheels.
