[/IMG]I installed bullet type tail light lenses, modified the wiring so all four lights lite during braking, and both tail lights flash when the turn signal is activated. I then installed low wattage fog lamps under the bumpers as my backup lights. Looks good and works great. I may eventually move them to the tag area.

It's a 72 - my profile was wrong! Sorry about that.
It's OK...we typically allow the new guys some slack. :D

I like your light locations. I was trying to decide where to place mine, and found pre-threaded mounting hole under the bumpers, so, that's where they went. But I've been thinking lately that inside the tag shroud would be a lot less noticeable.

Ive also been thinking about doing this modification since my back-up lights aren't hooked up to my Hurst shifter anyway.I saw the 75 in your profile and the chrome bumpers in the picture and thought Hmmmm.Somethings not right here.
