Taillights are always something of a conundrum on a custom
car. Since the rear is a part of the car many are going to be looking at
as it leaves them behind, people always want to do something cool, or at
least different. Finding that right combination of "cool" and
"different" can be a challenge and usually involves a whole series
of mock-up in carboard before a decision is made.
Round or rectangle? And of we go round, how many holes?
Perhaps a variation on the stock lights, a skinny rectangle
with angled ends...
It was finally decided to go with tailight panel from a 69
Camaro, available from Dynacorn International, with Alternative Custom "Rally
Sport" tail light inserts.
While we are back here, we might as well do something cool
with the exhaust, too. The exhaut pipe port was custom made by one of our
