back up light ideas with shelby taillights
Hi bros

I installed a sequential shelby taillight from a 67 mustang in my 73 mach1

Now i want to install the back up lights and im searching for a good looking place.

I will add a picture later tonight for everyone and hoping for some good creative ideas.
I would carry on with the theme and put them in the rear valance. Not sure if you have dual exhaust with the cutouts though? Real estate may be tight in the valance, but you could move them around to work. It may be worthwhile to consider a non-cutout valance and still have duals that dump out like a stock single exhaust. Just my opinion for consideration.

72 Mach 1 H-Code (Concourse driven restoration)
67 S-Code Factory GT with 4-Spd

68 Mercury Cyclone (Pro-Street project)
I would suggest the same as what BK said. In fact, the only thing I wish Ford would've done different with our cars is continue the 3 verticle strips with detached [in tha valance] reverse lights. The trapezoids we have could've been done better, IMHO.

I also kinda wish I would've done the Shelby tail light treatment to mine as well... but I'm still on the fence as to how they look on a fastback. They look absolutely awesome on coupes and 'verts, though. thumb

I want to do the same modification, but I was thinking with all the great LED's out now I could mount some in the license plate area of the bumper that would be relatively innocuous.

I just need the lights and some more time.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
Its still not finished and also my spoiler is missing

Looking forward for some ideas

Oh my. That's nice. thumb

Definitely some of those small round early-model reverse lights - with some LED inserts from Mustang Project. Big Grin

What about 1/2 round LED strips at the exhaust cutouts? If they were recessed, you would not normally see them until they lit up.
How I did it...

It's a perfect opportunity for a gung-ho customizer - one that's really good with his or her welding - to flush-mount a pair of rectangular reverse light bezels into the bumper itself.
