    Hey Guys, I have been trying to figure out which way to mount the set of 49 Buick tail lights on my 50 Chevy, I love the look of the lights and think they stay with the rounded body of my car. But I have found a couple of pics of 2 different mounts and figured I would ask you guys what you think??? Thanks again!!! Personally I like them upsied down like the black car, but then again...

    The black car has them in their normal position. I do like the looks of them standing vertical. Is your Chev a fastback? If so you may want to keep them horizontal.

    Tough one for me, as I like them either way. But my first reaction was better on the black car, so I pick that one.

    Prevous message noted they are mounted in standard fashion, like on a Buick, on the black coupe. Although I have a 49 Buick fastback, I do like the verticle mounting on the purple/cherry car. As long as you are going to do some body modifications, I would go with verticle.

    Have a buddy photoshop it for you or if you are good enough you can use the paint program that is with every computer almost.
