    Then the question is....what are those clips for?   Unless the clips seen in the kit are what looks to be the same clips on the metal bezel as shown in you picture?   Yes, maybe the red lens is sandwiched between the bezel and sheet metal. 

     

    Got it!

    i inverted the worn rubber gasket until I order new ones in the future

  2. This is what a Southern Florida State police radio call will sound like:
    “Attention all units, any units in the area, BOLO for a gold in color vintage sedan signal 12 traveling at high speed almost causing multiple signal 4‘s. High roller last seen traveling northbound on SR 871 extension approaching SR 836. Time delay about 2 mikes. Reporter no longer on line, station clear at 10:03.

    (Unit) MIA 672......(Dispatch) 672 MIA, in the area 10-54, 10-25, show me 10-98.

    “ Never going to catch that”

    Yes, it looks like those clips mount on the protrusions and secure the lense to the metal surround. 

    Nope! Not long enough. The only thing I can think is that the rubber gasket is already flat and worn not given that snug fit allowing the clips to secure to the housing. Might have to order new gaskets or bring out the exacto knife and make my own


  4. Ed, wished I had more room but that’s all I got! The enclosed trailer is presently parked in a friends side yard which is even tighter and when parking it, requires two person to back it in for look out due to house roof eve corners. I seldom use except Long distance car shows. I will use extra eyes once I park over here in the future leaving some space behind so I can at least open the rear ramp door. The RV is 23’ and I would be able to even open the only slide out with extra space. When the time comes I will post the parking arrangements. Hey, I can always park my Buicks there without a hassle.

  5. Definitely I’m missing something. I think 50, 51 52 are all alike, maybe someone with those model years can check for me. In the meantime, I Installed both rear fender welts and secure the fenders to the body. Rear scripts  and spear moldings were installed as well along with tail lamps housing. Since I removed the “roller” wheels and tires to secure the fenders, I decided to install the new rear tires. Coming along.
