Has anyone put in a blue dot in there tail light. It needs hole drilled 15/16"' Just wondering if this will weaken the lens or how tough it is to do.

Us old hotrodders from the 50's had them on our cars back then. I had a 40 Ford Coupe that had them in it and a 51 Ford 2 door. I saw them in the latest Shade Tree catalog. 5 years ago I bought about 10, of them, from Dennis Kirk, thinking they might not keep making them. They are a piece of blue glass about 1" in dia and held captive with a crome piece on the outside. You drill a 15/16 hole in the center of the tail light, insert and the crome piece has 3 or 4 tabs that bend over and hold it in place. I saw a 66 Ford F150, CA Truck, with them in the tail lights the other night. I was told a couple of years ago that they are not legal in cars anymore, but I not sure if that's correct or not. The blue dot shows up nice at night, especially when braking. Just another thing that us old guys want to remember from our youth. They bring back fond memories.
