Re: The Moldy Twinkie - 1987 Ford

I'm not sure what I think of a Ford without a column shifter...

Re: The Moldy Twinkie - 1987 Ford

you can use a product called peel n seal
it is used around patios and carports to stop leaks, around windows also, it isnt thick enough to hurt your floor layout.
roofing supplies or patio supply houses have it, it isnt expensive either.
once it is down it doesnt come up.

From what I've seen many people cut a piece of sheet metal in an oval or rectangular shape and rivet it on over the holes.

I plan to leave the lights, remove the flasher box, and use them as outdoor lighting. If I can find clear lenses that would be ideal, but otherwise I will put the 4 reds in the back and the 4 ambers in the front.

I have seen some use 7" clear lenses from the reverse lights, but they diffuse the light too much unless you just want to light up the entire campground!

Re: The Moldy Twinkie

Check with your state. Wisconsin requires they be removed Totally. Cannot leave the lens sitting there even if painted or covered.
