sponsors too

He got sponsor money from monster energy drink and a company made a model from his sketches and he gets royalties from that. Every once in a while some of his buddies would stop by the shop and bend some metal and try something on it, if Mo liked it , start welding. there are picts on line of more progress I googled Mo hernandez truck.

Groan... The "pun of the week" award goes to John Long for "thinking outside the Box" in discussing the rear treatment of a pickup!

That '58 Merc tail light thingy would be GREAT as the end for the bed rolls! Complete with the chrome fins and the "traffic cop flashlight" lens!

And if you just use the little long and round piece with the chrome fins around it from the '58 Park Lane, and cut off the ends of the bed rolls and put this in that place.....

Futuristic, jet age, and fins! Harley would be very happy!

There's no place to stop it unless you want to use the whole thing, too much for my taste. And besides.....it's a Ford!

LOL, I am one of the few people who ever owned a '59 Parklane conv. Few made and less survived. You would have to stretch your truck in all direction to put a set of those on it. They belong on a 20 foot long 5600 lb tank.

I am pretty sure I remember Flash Gordon using one of these as a shoulder weapon against Ming the Merciless!

Just stumbled accross a picture of a 38 Oldsmobile. Very interesting tail light could be perfect for Your truck Brian. My photobucket is locked up but do a search and see what you think.

Yep, that is what I believe I will end up with. But with your guys input I believe I will be mounting them up high on the bed.
We will see!

I could see multiple bullet tail lights in a vertical row starting below the top fold of the bed and descending . Maybe three on each sides.
