tail light help!

Hey guys... I'm working on making some custom tail lights...I've got the lense cut , I have the steel housing made... but now need to figure out a good way to fit the bulbs/lights to the housing..
These will be dual bulb lightbulbs for sequencing... What is a good water tight light fixture, and how to install it? Maybe rob sometime from the bone yard ..like those twist to fits? Ideas?

Thanks,
Barry

How about an LED conversion? You can mount the circuit board inside the housing and you only need to bring two wires out through a grommet. Alternatively if you're married to an 1157 bulb, get an aftermarket snap-in socket with a rubber seal. This should be water tight.
