yeah, about an inch lower.  I had to squash the K & N one by about an inch.  I used a heat gun and pushed it down.  It barely fit

Oh you know. . .  Not giving me any problems so it's out of mind.  That and it's costing me over 400 for that when it's done

Quote from: POLARACO
This is the second gift i got for Polaraco

And I finished the tail lights
 

I'm not too familiar with the rear of a 72 Polara - does the insert
between the tail lights (where D-O-D-G-E is spelled out) normally light
up when the headlights are on or did you add those?  I ask because I've
always thought it'd be neat to do something like that to Wanda.  You
know, if I could get the entire row - including the fuel cover cap - to
light up:







I just think that'd be the bee's knees to see a solid swath of tail
light illuminate at night like a wall of red with no way to see the
bulbs (unlike now).

Hey Dom, long time no hear... maybe you could scavenge light housigs
from another R body and mount them behind the red plastic panel on
either side of the filler... for the gas door, that'd be more difficult
- maybe LED's could be used behind it to keep it thin and not interfere
with the filler neck. Are the panels transparent so light would shine
thru?

Hi Dom
 
They were added and I sell just what you need.  You'll need two strips.  They are pretty inexpensive

One step ahead of you Roger.  ;)  I already have a complete, spare tail
light assy (including the fuel cap lens) on which to do my experiments. 
 The fuel cap lens appears to be translucent so it should work.  And,
yeah, you're right - only LEDs or some other low voltage light will work
 because of the tight space.  But if I'm going to use LEDs for the
center, then I'll have to use them for the L&R tail lights, too, so
everything will "match."  That's where it's going to get tricky.



That's also why this is a "low" priority project.



But I think if I CAN ever make that mod it'll look SUPER sweet.  Seeing Polaraco like that gives me hope it can be done.

Hmmm.....I'm going to want to know what the warranty period on your work is first.       Sorry....seriously, though, are the LED light strips something you fabricated, or are they a manufactured product?  You have a pic of them?

I am a dealer for them.  I am doing the HID headlights too.  I plan on specializing on these old dual headlight systems.[/QUOTE]
Looks like we're going to have to add you to the list of trusted vendors, then.

Something has to pay for running this site.  It's getting expensive.  They just raised my subscription
