    I got a 50 Ford and the tail lights were working fine. Then they just stopped. When I flip the light switch they don't go on. When I hit the brakes they barely glow and when I hit the blinkers they are a little dim. Head lights work fine though. Any advice?

    +1 on a bad ground. Run a temporary one if need be and check again. If they come back to life with a temp ground, you have found your problem.
