    I'm still wanting to get 67 to 72 chevy tail lights in the rear of the wagon, just cuase they will fit and the style is awesome. and One more piece of chevy never hurt no body,LOL.

    The only down side I see if after all the work, I back into something and have them dented up and cracked.
    I just can't make up my mind. my other idea is to run jeep lights where the old ones are ( just crudely bolted to the tail gate. or I can mount lights in the bumper, kinda a PITA to get the holes right and sealed.


    imput?


    OR ( see I change my mind too much...)

    I could ditch the tail gate and rear hatch and run a brace in each corner, like when you guys ditch your gates. and fill it in with a piece of diamond plate and mount some lights there.??? [\_____/] <- - - with a light in each diagnal area

    I wouldnt do it. I dont know much about body work but putting in lights from another vehicle sounds expensive. It would be different though.

    Leave it alone Jeremy. Both of my rear lights are dented, bent, and cracked. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
