1955 Packard taillight

Recommended Posts

If you have the plastic or resin body with those taillights, get some RTV rubber putty and make impressions of the taillights. Then get some clear urethane or epoxy material and make castings.  You can either tint the resin using red dye, or use clear resin and then paint the taillights with some transparent red paint (Tamiya or other brand).

Or take some clear red material (like a toothbrush handle)  and shape it to the desired shape using files and sandpaper., Then polish it is smooth.

Yesterday, on some online channel, I think it was 'Hemmings', they had a '54 Packard, beautiful grey, 4-dr., looked restored, for $6,000.  What a cool car!
