i dedidet i needed to be kinda diferent from all the s-10's around my town so i decided to hinge out my taillight and relocate the gass filler nosile under thare, and then ware my gas filler used to be i have two standard 110v outlets, i thnk it will be funny at a show to see a tv plugged into a trucks gas filler. SO now my taillight is hinged thare (the picture is of a practice taillight , my stock ones), i think it is kinda kewl, and will make something different, i also have a neon light back thare to light it up at night when i need to fill up, or just show it off.

let me know what you think, oh yea, no i didnt shave the gas filler door, i am too poor, prob will next winter tho.

That is pretty cool. Just like the 55' Chevrolet Bel Air. (I think that's the one anyway)

well i have been thinkin about it for a while now, and auctual time to do it was like only 1 or 2 hours, i just made my own hinge from dissasembled gas filler doors from different vheicles, i mixed the hinge setups from a 88 dodge shadow and a 87 grand am (both winter beater vehicles) and just came up with something that would work, it really isnt that hard, just have to position everything right, so that the edge of the light will clear the side of the truck, but still sit in the housing right. i will get more pics and a step by step process soon as i get my new taillights so i can make it final. Oh yea you have do do a little modification on the taillight to make it work, cut a few nothces off and a few plastic tabs. I will deffintntaly up date this probably saturday because that is the next day i can work on it

later

yea, my origional plan was to hinge out my Caddys, but then there was an overabundence of people who did that mod around my place (the caddy light mod) so i just decided to stick with the stock talilight and just hinge it out kinda.

****Newest mod to the hinged taillight situation, i ran a 3/8inch manual Air bag valve up to my cab and then the other end to a location behind the taillight and i am going to hit the switch causing the taillight to filp open when i want it to. All i need is to stop at the fitting store after work today so i can get a 1/2-1/2-3/8 compression fitting and i am gonna see how it works. Should be bad ass. If it all works and all, i am gonna take a video of it, so you guys can see it in action and the neon light behind the taillight.
