Yeah, it's you. And those 59 Cad taillights, I'm sorry, they are most used taillights in history (I think even more the 39 Ford) and I never get tired of seeing them. Just the thought that American car builders were bolt enough at one time to put something like that on a production car keeps me entertained. But on this build, holy cow they are PERFECT.

I would make them shorter Only because I think they would get broken real easy!

tail end

I can't belive how the whole back came together. I as most would have made the rear more flat. That inset put the car on a whole different level, I tried to out think you on the tailights but you nailed it again! Randy you have inspired me again I like that style man keep on postin' man. Buy the way we are going to have our 4th annual benifit car show at Bachman think you can have it ready by april 30th!!! LOL

My honest opinion on the tail lights, is that they are too long. That was my instant thought when I saw them for the first time. And I would have to agree with a previous poster that they would probably be prone to being broken easily in their current length.

In the end though, it is your hot rod and it need only please you. I'm still absolutely amazed with your skills.

If you want a shorter look with the tail lights....don't shorten the lights.....french them in some.

Yes the taillights are "too long", and that is the very reason I would leave them! Lenses don't cost that much, if one gets broken every now and again replace it. But honestly I don't think so, you won't break it because you will no better and no one else will break it because they aren't walking that close to the car, you stand back and look at a ride like that.

I say the back end is perfect.

Thanks guy's.. They where going to be french in up to the lip of the chrome bezel... But the pipe was the same size... I needed about 1/6 bigger... So I was going to weld a flat plate to the end of the pipe, then bolt them to it... BUT I might just split the pipe in make them that 1/6 bigger, Then the lights would be up to the lip.. That would bring them in about 1'' or so... I really hate when they french these lights all the way in.. That hides the chrome bezel... To me, That's what makes these lights pop..
