Old tail lights.

Many owners chose to replace the old tail lights, with new style, but same size, LED lights, that offer much more visibilty at night.

I went with LED tail light in my 67. They are very visible and you can get them everywhere. Google 7" LED bus light or try e-bay and Andy sells them too. Prices and LED count will vary.

This is another site that has lots of LED solutions. My plan is to switch all of my lighting over to LED, inside and out. This is in an effort to extend the time between charging when off shore power and to reduce the heat left over from incandescent bulbs.

in preparation to lift the shell, I thought it would be a good idea to remove the A/C from the roof. I think it should have been a 2 person job but I managed to get it off by myself. My other motivation was that I had decided to not keep the A/C. I will use a window unit in the front window if needed and I purchased a Fantastic Fan (FF) about a year or so ago and I would like to get it installed. The pictures below of the FF are just dry fit (after some trimming of the skin). I want to polish the skin before I fasten the FF permanently.

Most of the original segments are still available.

sorry Andy, what segments are you referring?


Well, I said I didn't want to run the screws into the skin for the FF, but It had to be. In true fashion, we have a tropical disturbance heading our way and are under a Tropical Wind watch...the joys of living in the Tropics. So to minimize the water intrusion and the chance of the FF flying off with the 60MPH winds, I ran the screws! I will just have to seal it up later.
