Ran the VIN on the S-10.
It's a 99. 4.3 LS trim level.
On to the tail lights. PS first.
Once I fill in all the sheet metal these will get round rod on the edge.

Thanks all.
I'm happy with the way the first one turned out.
These buckets and tail lights are a heirloom gift that I have been planning on using for this build.
There are many custom Mercurys out there but you don't seem to see many customs with the 49-50 Tail lights on them. So this makes it a little bit different as well.
I've done this type of tail lights before but always made my own buckets.(Used Bush's Baked bean cans once.) These buckets are no longer being made as far as I can tell.
I like the fact that you will be able to see the bling as this build really won't have a lot of chrome on it.
I'm waiting for the first person to ask me why I put different front sheet metal on a Mercury.
Keep on keeping on....
Torchie

Those tail lights are going to look great.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Agreed, the tail lights are looking good. That must have been a ton of work, but well worth it in the end.

I'll bite, why did you put different front sheet metal on a Mercury?
