“DOUBLE DOZEN” headlights

Posted on Friday, January 20th, 2012 at 19:30

Just completed and hopefully they will be on display on a bare aluminum Roadster at the GNRS this January 27th. These lights were a long time in the making. They consist of a hand made steel shell with a “lost wax” cast brass bezel both plated in chrome, a projector beam with a silver reflector inside, a white neon tube hidden behind the bezel for a park light, and a curved fluted glass lense to match the slight curve in the grille. When the neon is lit up it casts a glow to the whole inside of the light and the light accentuates the fluted reveals in the lens itself. Check them out if you are at the GNRS the weekend of January 27-29.
