Notice: This page name is now known as Vintage Rustiques.
This blog started out as documenting my Itty Bitty Shasta's shot at a new life by recycling her nearly 40 year old shell into a little tiny cabin that I can take with me. Now that the Shasta project is complete I wanted to continue the blog to include other things that I have recycled. Follow along as I take someones tossed aside junk and create treasures from it. Everybody has their something, mine just happens to be junk!
These are the original tail light covers. One is in perfect shape but one suffard a collision...not sure with what but it had a little hole in it. Nothing a little dab on silicone and a piece of another broken tail light couldn't fix! You can still buy these lenses fron Vintage Trailer Supply but they will set you back a meer $25 bucks each.
The original lights were too rusty to use so I started my search for replacements. No luck. Then I found out the Bargeman company no longer makes these, or anybody for that matter, makes these #99 lights. So what to do, what to do...put my punkin head to work! I read that these lights are very simillar to gallon paint can lids...what to do, what to do...go top Lowes and but paint cans! GREAT GRAVEY it worked! Me and Daddy constructed the same light, that was no longer made, out of paint can lids. Kinda professional lookin huh?
