    Update to Merc taillight installation shown in post #76. Fenders were pie-cut to flush their surfaces with taillight housings. RussB photo:

    Anyone knows what this one fits? It's not MG and I don't think it's 41 Studebaker. It does say that it's a LH. Neat looking but I can't ID it.

    I'd trim the lenses so they don't stick out from the bezels quite as far.

    Look's like a front marker light from a 54 Pontiac
     
  25. I'm falling in and out of love with these. Been meaning to take a poll. I'm on the damn fence.

    Love the lights but the bumper looks massive and heavy.

  30. Wolfex1, they look good and it is good to see somebody try to use something besides the typical Packard tail light. Any pictures of the whole car to know how they look with the rest of the car?

    What are your plans for the DeSoto bumper? I think it would look good if you frenched it in. Just my two cents.
