Hello,

will going to start some repairs/restorations on my Star Chief.
At first I will go change the reverse lights, because a previous owner has replaced the clear lenses
with Cadillac tail lights. Have removed the reverse lights from my parts car and the seals are looking
very bad. Has anyone an idea where to get the seals?

Hello!

I have made seals like this by 2 mm rubber gasket material. Your old ones will do as templates, just draw the contours with a ball pen, and cut with a sharp knife. Then make the bolt holes with a hole punch. You can probably buy new ones for a Chevrolet or a Cadillac, but real men who likes challanges choses Pontiac!

Hello together,

the next thing I should know, how the tail lights are working correct.
At the moment the outer and inner bulbs are glowing when the light is activated (see pic).
If I use the brake, all three bulbs are glowing.
The turn signal was installed where the reverse light should be for common.
How is the turn signal working right? One, two, or all three bulbs, all together or in row?
