Testing Intrest in Metal Taillight Housings

I am working on a set of metal tail light housing for 73-91 chevys. Was wondering if any one would be interested?

there would be two types

1. would be solid allowing you to put in any light you want or leave it solid to cover the big gaping holes in the back of your rig

2. would have a set with frenched LED's in them

Any one think they would like a set?

not done yet but when i finish I'll post some pix
here is what they will probably look like
screen.width-500) {this.width=screen.width-500;this.alt='Click here to see a large version';**" border=0>

I'm working on a similar setup for my trailers, and "closely" modeled it after the rear of my 'burb for that very same reason welchct.

interested in seeing pictures of what you're coming up with...

I'd love to see pictures too, jsut out of curiosity. My trail truck doesnt have a bed on it otherwise I might be interested in a set. For now I'm running a set of trailer tail lights with little metal cages around them.

I'm interested. Need them soon, as I dented my rear quarter panel in that exact spot and ripped the tail light out.

I'll take a set. But put a reflector in the side of it so it will be legal.
