When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Oh DUH!!
Actually, yes - after I have the outside metal work done, I'll cut an big access hole in the base plate to attach mounting for the lens and a backing piece with light socket and to access wiring the whole assembly. Lotta work just to bring it all together but once they're all smoothed off (bondo) and painted, it should look kinda factory (pass it off as a factory option to the uneducated )

I had the same thought. Looks like at least three of us did. Its a bunch of work to be cool. One of those modern twist in sockets would work. Amber bulb?

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

When you're done it will be similar to the style of my 46 lights, where you could cut out everything but the necessary outside lip and whatever needed to mount it to the fender and leave the rest open.

On the park lights on my 46, the socket sits upright underneath the lens (but they do have a top 3 sides to the lens). I don't recommend upright sockets due to issues with water.

Yep, that's the plan, hog out as much as possible for access, my fat fingers don't fit in tiny places... good tip on the sockets, water and 12volt don't mix too well
