Ok here we go, was hesitant to do this but here goes nothing. I bought the truck from my cousin in 2003 it was bagged but not very nice so I drove it for a bit then started my own project. First I put a belt drive on (York 210) cuz the 12 gallon with 1 450 wasn't cutting it then i put smc valves in place of the junk that was there. Then I bodydropped it shortly after that I had a local shop put a 4 link bob with tubular bridge on it. Drove it awhile then s*** hit the fan. I lost a lowest of the low contest to a car by 3/4" so I came home and cut the rockers off re did the bd to the door put a v8 in with tuned port fuel injection. Then decided I didn't have enought head room so in 2007 me and a local shop owner built a stock floor frame for it and I got a new cab. Truck has sit since 2008 in my dads yard got a wild hair after wrecking another project I finished so here we are. Pics to come now

What is your plan to get to the inner mounting screws for the tail lights?

I was going to do a removable panel...

More than likely he will have to do it the same way I did magnetic screwdriver and reach up in there to put the screws in place in place.

never even though of that. Even if he can get to just the lower one, that beats a big removable panel like I was thinking
