    Here's some late 40's Chrysler Town and Country lights that I've added to the rear of my 49 Ford F1. I added blue dots to them as well.

    Right Jeffrey, i hope i will be of some help, if i knew how to post big pics i'd do it, but all i can do is post this bastard thumbs.Anyway, i went through my folders and came up w/ a few nice 53/54s. Now, i know some are almost stock just frenched items,and that some of these cars are pretty well known, but i thought that if i cant be of any help for yur project would still be kool for this thread.well, 'nuff said....except: KEEP THIS THREAD GOIN!!!!!!!!

    The last few.Now, this is just my mere opinion, but the Starlite built 53 chevy other than being one of the classiest customs to come out lately also has a very nice tailites treatment, a lot like the Drag-n-Shop shoeboxes, and i would find that very inspiring if i had a early 50s GM body, but yet again, just IMHO.bonez.
