How to mount the rear bumper from a 1985 corvette?

BetsyCheryl AA Crafty Mix - Michelle


I have the rear bumper from a 1985 corvette that I would like to mount on my wooden fence in the backyard. Does anyone have any idea on how I could put lights inside the taillights so it would light up at night? I tried to attach a picture; however it won't download. Picture the back end of an 85 Corvette, with the taillights, license plate, etc. That's what it looks like, but I would like to be able to add lights to it so it would light up at night. Didn't know if someone might have tried to do this and could give me some pointers. Thanks!

    Use exterior pvc pipe and fittings to attach the two tail lights. With a plug on one end. Need to run underground wiring with an above ground exterior plug to your location. Sounds really awesome.

    That sounds like such a fun idea. Perhaps you can run a long string of solar fairy lights into the tail lights and mount the solar panel on the fence.

    you would have to have an ac adapter or 12 volt battery to use as a source for the lights be sure to send us a photo of your finished project

    Hi Chris: I'm thinking that you need to secure this puppy down or it will find itself walking off down the street:) Such a cool idea. I'd try solar lights for ease, or battery operated lights, if you don't mind walking out and turning them on. I'd love to see a picture of this. I, myself, am a fan of the 1963 split window coupe:) Had one years ago, wish I still had it:( Good luck
