I think they’re pretty cool. Do you get enough light thru the double lens for daytime use, or did you cut the center out of the original?

I cut the center out of the stock light leaving about 3/8" around the perimeter. and cut the center out of the bulb housing on the 50 so I could use the "ring" to mount the chrome bezel. I used a 1/2" thick rubber "donut" gasket between the glass of the 50 and that 3/8" I left when I cut the recessed face of the stock light. I will take a pic of the inside when I get home tonight.

Took me ages to get a decent set (with lenses) and have them re-plated....... and they still haven't made it onto the car!

Is California one of those states that gets all stupid about having a blue light showing to the rear? I've heard of places where the blue jewel had to be blacked out on the bulb side to avoid being cited. So the "blue dot" just became an external décor item - ruins the effect.
I talked to a fellow one night, who was thinking about building an LED lighted "blue dot" - with separate wiring - so it only illuminated when it was selected to be on. Such a gadget would be useful in states where they have a poor sense of humor.

GREENBIRD56,
That is is question I will find an answer to when I put it on the road. But in the mean time, I dig it!

I like both they are really cool.  I found this on the crown I have.  They took a red plex. cut out donut to fit tail light, then put 54 Oldsmobile tail light lens screwed in .http://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/74c29c89-89ff-4e02-8484-b4c0.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/1e05147f-97e9-4e8e-a978-cfd2.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/a6a589d9-9fdd-4df0-999a-38ba.jpg
