Yes, I can see a degree of needed improvement but perhaps I am not as skilled at major reconstruction of the body as a lot of folks. If you get brave you may want to try your dishwasher and a good detergent as these washed lights really look great. I am really pleased as to me it looks almost new. Now, I do agree the cheesy reflector system(between the two tail lights) may be hopeless. I can't belive Ford used this on the Lincoln. One might consider a good reflector and LEDs in the area The clear at the bottom is neither reflector nor active light. I may want to start in this area as others have done. By the way, I put a standard LED replacement light that I had on hand in the area of where the top 3157 goes and was pleasantly surprised. Maybe a good strong 20 LED replacement is all that is needed and not the heroric effort of redoinng lenses that I contemplated. Then I can just concentrate on the area now occupied by the reflectors and in particular that fake clear stuff at the bottom that would easily be able to accomadate a couple of red light strips. I could wire them up to supplement the red stop and turn.

Does any one know who made the front headlights?


I think the front lights were a Chevy part. Think of the 89 thru early 90's c3500 series trucks. They had a headlight assembly that looked just like the ones on the MH's. There were many Manufacturers that made the early integrated lights. It may just be a matter of pulling one and seeing if it has a manufacturer stamped on it to verify.
