Let is be clear, At AMPro, we love the Midnight Pumpkin. The tail lamps on the stock truck are the only things that deter from the original stunning reproduction of the '53 Ford body that Tamiya so painstakingly created. Now, finally, after all these year that Tamiya has been making the Midnight Pumpkin (and now the Low-ride version), we can now chop off those disgraceful tail lights and add the correct ones. AMPro gleefully introduces the correct Midnight Pumpkin tail lights. You will get both sides with one order. These will replace the stock units once carefully removed from the tail gate. The inner face of the tail gate where the tail lights were will need to be ground flush and then these may be glued in place on the back of the tailgate. They will then poke through the original slots in the body without modifying the body at all. Why are they clear? They light up! You will need to paint the non-illuminated ares with silver so that the light does not pass through and then install a super-bright LED internally so that the LED will have enough intensity to make the lamp glow. Obviously, they do not need to be illuminated but the other Shapeways materials are not capable of creating the finer details needed for the "FORD" script. IMPORTANT NOTEl The inside of the tailgate also must be shot silver if the body is a light color to prevent light penetration. This is on the white styrene version of the shell. Transparent detail is what is pictured in most of the photographs and has a nice clear look with a very slight gradient on rounded faces. The Frosted Ultra Detail has a very light fog to it but a highly polished and finished look that almost looks injection molded.. If the option to "Print it anyway" is asked, please check the box to confirm that you would like to do so.
Part number 070003-02 has the ability to accept a turn signal 3mm LED!
