There were these guys once....in the 80's.....who successfully got rid of Gremlins from memory  Roll Eyes, but I was young at the time and can't remember the name of the place?  Huh

I modified the tail lights to accept the VT sockets, simply filed the metal away so it would accept the tabs from VT sockets.




Really faded orange lens  but will get a clear ones later as running orange bulbs


And working!!!! Grin Grin Grin (so good I framed it)

See how yours has Holden written on the lense, mine look the same with stripes right through but no part number or the writing on the lens. Should I assume that they are aftermarket?

NES I would really recommend toying around a bit with the front bumper. Some dude recently suggested I google search to get me some more ideas, but I can't remember what it was. Do you have the link handy? Huh Huh Huh
