  2. 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. :D

  9. 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.

    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.

  15. Thought about that, but these are "milk" glass, so I'm afriad they'll windup a little too "pink" when the lights come on!

    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.

    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!
