In checking Vintaggeairstream.com it appears that there was a difference between the Land Yacht and Land Yacht International. It appears that the International had the cast aluminum trim and the Land Yacht had what appear to be Bargman 99 lights(?).

Good luck with your project!

Kevin

Those are the Bargman 99, but they're out of stock, and have been for at least 6 weeks. If you get the lens, you can dummy up a base out of a coffee can, and add LED lamps.

Now would be the time to update to LEDs. I found a stack of them in the back room at Inland, if you want a pair, give 'em a call on Monday.

Tail lights

If you look at the picture posted by TomW you will see that the style lights that Mark is offering are outside the (center) flat panel. The International trim package taillights are mounted on the curved rear panels. Your standard taillights were mounted in the flat panel under the rear window. The ones offered to you won't cover the original mounting holes in that flat panel...fyi. Ed

Terry, Would the ones you found at Inland work in the International trimmed light package? I guess I have to check with the Guru (Andy) and see if an upgrade is in my future! Thanks for the tip... Ed

That's true. You also need to be willing to cut two holes in the outer skin because the cast aluminum housings need to be recessed into the skin. This is not a reversible change, and it wouldn't cover the existing holes. The rear picture shows how large the recess needs to be.

Anyway, I'll get a shipping weight on the aluminum ones tomorrow so you can estimate the shipping cost. But I want to be sure you will use them before I ship them to you.
