I've been searching through old posts trying to find out who knows where to get those reproduction bullet shaped tail lights from a 59 Caddy. I recall somebody mentioning that they are being made brighter with LED's in them. That is what I need to find. The LED ones. . .
I am working now on making a plug of the tailfins that will go on my galley hatch. This plug will then be taken to a local fibreglass shop where it will be turned into a mold. From this mold I will have two gelcoated tailfins made. I want to have the bullet lights mounted on the rear edge of the tailfin.
If anybody knows where to find those LED lights, you can save me a lot of computer time by steering me in the right direction.
Oh, by the way, these tailfins will have a flange on them so that I can put a sealer under the flange and then screw down through the flange and the galley hatch into the hatch bows themselves. This will be good and strong and will help hold the hatch curve. The flange will be just like mounting a roof vent. But I wonder, would it be wiser to have the aluminum skin of the trailer overlap this flange so that water rolls by the fin. (the same way sheet metal is laced into tar paper on a house roof) I would be grateful for opinions on this matter. But don't forget. . .this is a post about LED bullet lights.
