I want bright lights that I don't have to mess with. Nothing sours a vacation more, than a visit from this guy.
The other thing is I need them to look good as well as being functional. Since the goal is to pull this with a 1957 Ford, I think it only right to use 57 Ford tail lights.
The original lights were plain and basically ugly, in my opinion.
|Devo still sucks after 25 years.|
|These mount in a rubber donut, so they will be insulated from vibration.|
The aftermath........another nicely crafted hole and stained skin. This will require some thought. I need to make sure the new lens is lined up and matches everything aesthetically, but I have to pick up that crazily located factory hole.
The first thing I needed was my new lens. I wanted to see how close this new LED tail light would fit under the 57 Ford light.
|I bought 7 of these for 5 bucks a piece from a guy.|
I had to mock up the lens and mark it with a Sharpie just to verify the location. Measure 57 times, cut once.
|My redneck tools.|
Tomorrow, I will mark the other side and push it outside with the lenses taped in place to verify their proper location.
