New 1960 Chrysler New Yorker tail lights for a Custom Car

 

The Problem

Our friend Al Worley brought us an interesting problem to solve, a set of badly worn tail lights from his very custom Chrysler new yorker.

Notice the Crazing

The Solution

After receiving the lenses we were able to determine that most of the crazing was internal on the lenses. We were able to create a clear putty using

melted acrylic to fill in a crack in one lens, once that cured we cleaned and polished the lenses. Once the lenses were ready we created temporary molds and cast them out of a clear red tinted urethane.

 

The Result

Two exact replicas of the original taillights and a very happy customer.
