Fools Gold! 1972 4dr 510

Recommended Posts

What's up guys!!! Got some awesome goodies delivered today.

 

After a countless period of searching for a garnish for my mexican tail lights, I finally found one. It's been such a struggle trying to find this piece but I've finally won the battle! The tail lights look great with it!

Also got a front valance in from futofab. Slowly putting in work... Can't wait for Rat's with Dat's. It's gonna be a great year!

Finally got to installing my tail lights on Saturday!! Had to get my girlfriend looking good for the meet. ;)

 

Previously I had spent some time looking at the510keepers builds and took some notes to use on my dime!

 

I left some flaps for extra strength and made some Mickey Mouse ears to help the metal bend while using the hammer and dolly. Also had to have the panel re drilled for the lights and the garnish.

I also made a small incision right where tail light panel creases to help the metal bend easier.

All hammered up!

Aaaand the final product! Tail lights look a bit crooked because the trunk shuts more to one side.

You gotta rewire that tail light harness to get full running lights, they look way better.

 

 

And my lights look crooked too, you can only use the outer most mounting holes and for some reason they sit just a touch low on the outside edge, for me one light is worse than the other.

Seems like you could just elongate the holes no?

Thanks Craig, It was nice meeting you on Saturday!

 

Lol when I put the lights on they lit up correctly but my brake lights didn't work. I used the harness off the other lights to get my brake lights working.

 

Why elongate the holes mattyhacks?

So you can tilt them a bit to make them look less slanted :P
