Tail lights on Ad

Re: Tail lights on Ad

I used those on my 53. Sorry, I don't have any good pictures of the inside of the cutout in the stake pocket where the lights are mounted. We did two nuts for the mounting screws welded to the backside/inside of holes in the curved cutout "plate." There is also a hole for the wiring to pass through, of course.

Hey, thanks guys! I can personally take credit for the build ideas only. I was fortunate to have access to a group of incredibly talented guys in Minnesota who helped turn those ideas into reality. They deserve all the credit for their amazing craftsmanship, and I'm thankful for each one of those guys every time I hop into the truck!

Haha, yeah, kind of a woopsie there. That was where I originally wanted the gas filler, but once it was cut in and on the truck with all the other sheet metal, I looked at it for a good 20 minutes and decided it needed to be further up on the fender. I hated to make the change because it required more work, but ultimately I felt it needed to be "just right" and might as well go ahead and do it before the paint went on. I might have had a couple of those kind of woopsies as the truck went together...
