    Sure Hawkco...I'd spend 20 hours working on YOUR car for $100. You just bring it here and go back to GA. I'll call you when I've spent 20 hours on it to come back and get it. Of course, body work is so tedius, you might not be able to tell much has been done. :whistle:

    Tail Lights Swap

    Lots of good info. Thanks to all.
    I like Razorsharp's tail the best. Keep it clean guys.
    But that more than I can do. I am more of a parts changer.

    I will look for a deal on t-bird or cougar lights. No hurry, I am just collecting parts at this point.

    Thanks to Razorsharp for his photo gallery. Ratio411 for the photos of different lights swapables and Ford84stepside for the website info on the really cool $$$$ lights.

    I will see some of the Maverick Nuts in Waco, TX Sat 9/23/06. Ya'll Come!!

    I've used just the lights(68 Shelby) but it doesn't look anywhere nera as nice as Rays. Someday I'd like to do the whole tail-panel.

    what about 69 Charger tails? I think I would like to do that some day, but can't find a decent set at the swap meets to get an idea of how big they are

    rwbrooks50, you could cheat like I did and see if you could find some 64 tbird lights. (you can still find them on ebay) Then all you have to do is buy new lens and bezles and you got shelby lights. it does take a little work but I know Ray and I love ours, right Ray!

    Good luck on which ever way you go.

    As always just my .02
