Lights, camera…

Having a few boxes of spare roadster bits comes in handy. These taillights are made up of the best parts from about 20 spares. Lots of chrome polish made them look even better.

There is something vaguely 50’s American about the tail end of a roadster – on a much smaller scale. The lights bring to mind rocket nozzles or jet afterburners. The 50’s look really comes out when one of the squarish aftermarket hardtops is on the car.

The slightly mangled rear bumper will go back in place after a clean-up.
