Right now i finished shavin off the taillights of my 93' c1500 and im frenchin in 4, 59' caddy lights (incase your unsure of what those look like.. http://www.go-kat-go.com/taillights.html ), but i have 2 ideas of what to do with them and im very unsure of what one to go with. The first idea would be to just french them down into the roll pan, 2 on each side of the lisence plate box. The second idea is french in the buckets were the old tailights were puttin two and two on each side, then welding the liscense plate box on the left side of the rollpan. Any opinions on what to go with, or any better ideas. thanx

P.S. Also if i was goin to to french them in were the old tailights were i was considerein frenching in a pair of 67' corvette reverse lights down on the rollpan, but thats just an idea.

I don't know how good it works, but I'd french in a clear LED above the pan. That's what I've been thinking about on mine.

i really enjoy the look of those 59' caddy's, i have seen the led's and the newer style caddy devilles (sp?) done often so i wanted something that would slighty set my truck apart.

or do u mean use clear led's used for reverse lights.

I don't know what these look like on a vehicle or lit but I wouldn't do them on the roll pan to have them confused for those corvette style rollpans I don't like.

french em into the buckets... i think i saw it done once on a dakota. It looked pretty good. Put a big ass Clear LED between the tailgate and the pan, so it looks clear during the day. I think that would look pretty sic.
