Suggestions for Custom Tails on a Chevy Pickup?

I've been lookin around for ideas and it popped into my head I've never seen taillights mounted on the fenders like the classic cars of old. I've got a 41 Chevy and wondering what others would suggest mounting on the rear of the fender for a taillight assembly. Unfort. that's just not my generation or speciality to know what is out there that looks good on a curved fender.

The first thing that popped into my head was 59 caddy lights. Perfect for an old custom .
