I put '56 Corvette lights in this '52 Merc when I owned it. They go well with the ends of the bumper. The orginal lights were in bad shape.
has anyone done anything cool with 55 chevy tailight?
Here's my 41 Plymouth coupe running 39 Ford tail lights.
when i first finished them i think they look good.
keep em comin! gettin some good ideas...
51 Pathfinder Accessory lights in the rear of my 33 Coupe set in some sand cast ally bezels
Does anyone know of some 2 1/8" round tail light lenses? I'd like to use the cowl lights of my '28 Chevy as tail lights:
I am not much into the caddy tail light either, So I covered them up. The housings are semi truck cab lights.
lee len,s from 1958 not repop
Mac - You could spray the current lenses with Testor's Ruby Red translucent paint. I've done this and you'd never know the difference. The paint also holds up well over time.
49' Hudson flipped.
Thought about that, but these are "milk" glass, so I'm afriad they'll windup a little too "pink" when the lights come on!
'56 Corvette in '49 Chevy
66 Chevelle taillights in a 51 Chevy:
One taillight I think could be used more. The 1937 Chrysler airflows or 1937 Desoto. For scratched and hazed leses I know that modelers dip there plastic windows and lenses in future floor finish and they seem to come out crystal clear. Someone should try it on a newer set and see what happens. After they dip them for a minute you need a stand so they stay upright and they rub the edges off a little against a paper towel and then let it dry.

the little rear rockets, I want to have 3 light so it looks more like the S-22.
Is this a stock 52 bumper? if not whats it off of?
these are mine that a made from scratch.
something i thought would give good ideas
Not on a car, but these are '39 Chevy headlight buckets that I put old school bus lenses in, added stainles steel trim rings, and put on my semi that I pull my fifth wheel with.
Yep, stock 52 Mercury bumper.
made these awhile back for a merc..
on my '33 ford, need help identifying. Dad does not remember what they came off of. Probably mounted around 1960:
Looks like 48 chevy
thanks! that might be it...
Definately unusual! Not so sure I like the paint on those, but at least its different than most!
You have any pics of the taillights on and the shop lights off? Lets see what theyll look like in action!
Man, some really clever s**t on this thread.
Same old played out 59 Caddy lenses in a 56 DeSoto. I still like em.
