willys aero sedan?
This is what I'd like to replicate on the '31:
Repro units are available but hellishly expensive, so I'll see about fabbing some out of the ball knuckles used on industrial steel balustrading. The wall thickness is more than I'd like but it might just work.
OK, I learned a new word today, now I can have a nap. Then I will try to use it in a sentence. WX1
This sort of thing:
The ball in the foreground is just the right size for my taillights.
Yes, I had never heard the term before and had to look it up. Thanks!
I know this is a tail light thread but what is this grill off of?
'50 Buick in a '50 Buick ! just frenched 4"
With a little help from a concave reflector behind the bulb and light diffusing lenses, they ought to function quite well.
I thought ya'll might be interested in this page.....it lists just about every taillight ever made......and the codes used to identify them......a very neet reference..... http://sites.google.com/site/guidetotaillightcodes/Home
That site is awesome! thanks!
29 Sedan with 80's Caddy lites
lookin through this thread reminds me that there are a lot of people with great vision and the ability to build what they see,then there are thoes who dont have a clue !!!
HMMM, did the same on my 50 Merc Custom about 20 years ago, frenched and reversed them from side to side and put them in upside down (makes it a Y) to represent the 225 horse 312 56 T Bird Y block that was installed in 56.
Bastardised mongrels cobbled together from 59 caddy crowns,Impala lenses and coloured dots.
Lincoln Tail lights on my 51.
A friend of mine put six cad lenses in his '60 Impala. He machined an aluminum adapter that screws to the stock bezel, and then sticks out so the cady lens and trim piece slide over it and screws on. I can post up some pics later.
I just replaced my generic plastic tail lights with these today. I found a couple of '62 Imperial housings & used some plastic beehive lenses, since the original lenses we long gone. Actually, they weren't my idea. Turn back to Page 17 in your textbooks & check out the post from "12BAGT." If you don't like them, it's all his fault.
I personally, like them! They look pretty cool, and less likely to get busted off. Thanks for the credit, or blame.... whatever...
'48 Chevy on my '32 Ford.
Lotsa great ideas!
my '60 Starliner...
50 Merc. on a 51 F-1

WOW nice work want too make me a set?
'50 Mercury in my '50 Ford. Cut them up a little.
OK, I'll say it, WTF, more 59 Caddy taillites. I just wanted mine to get in on the fun.
