Dick, are you suggesting I don't know how to use my own website?!?

Oooh! Ooooooooh! You know how disappointed Matthew will be if Faulkner's not skirted at Carlisle, Dick. Can you part with them? If so, PM me what you want for them, I'll send a check back with your taillight housing.

Brackets arrived today, Dick! Thanks so much. You are a real Mensch - did I mention that?

There's a wide end, and a somewhat narrower end - it's hard for me to tell how you oriented, from this pic. Maybe, the rod on the skirt engages the bracket on the wide end?

I never noticed that, l would say the final position of the rod would be the small end if it fits. It should have a rubber dampner on it.

Oh no! The passenger side hinge a spring took a hit. I'll have to touch that up. Mostly, this is just shop dust that has to be cleaned up


I really love how it came out - although, there are a couple spots that need some 2000 grit blocking and polishing. I talked to the owner, he's going to fix it when I drive it back after all the lights are hung.

All I need now is a minor miracle, to put this all back together before Carlisle. But it's still in the low 40's and raining like a sumnabitch here. This is like no spring I have ever seen... (*tap*, *tap*...) Hello Matthew, is this mike on?!? 8)

Oh Noes! I'm going through my Gary Goers stash - and my taillight bulb sockets are too big! They're 1", and they should be 3/4"...

Anyone know a good source for these? I need four single terminal, and two double terminal.
