    Not bad. What do you know about them? And they'd be 05-09.

    Looks like a clever cover. Stock tails behind a chrome/matte blackout panel

    My bad.l changed the title. I made them myself about three years ago. Thought about putting them into production but I would have lost money. Not enough sales to pay for molds and assembly. At least for a single person like myself. I wish I could get them mass produced. Would love to share them with the Mustang family. I really wanted to make a tail light that looked more like a 69 or 70 model Mustang.

    No. They are individual bezels and reflectors mouted on a steel panel.

    Do you have pics of them not mounted, during production perhaps?

    Great re-creation of that old-school look.

    Have you tried to source a stock or repop bulb housing that is approximately the right size? That would get rid of your most expensive tooling cost.

    Those look great! What about 3D printing them out of plastic?

    The silver trim rings or bezels and the rear reflector/bulb housing are 3D printed. I'll post some more pics when I get them loaded on my phone.

    If I didn't have Raxiom S550 style lights I'd give those serious consideration if made available.

    I'd definitely be very interested in purchasing these, if available?

    Great looking tail-lights, our problem in Australia the outer lens needs to be amber. '06 Louver rear.JPG

    In the EU, the outer lens also has to be amber but my car was passed by the SVA anyway when I imported it from the UAE two years ago. I've put sequential harnesses in my taillights since then and they work flawlessly.
    I do like the cool retro look of the taillights the OP has posted, and they go really well with the 05-09 retro body style. I think there's definitely a market for them and if he makes a few with amber outer lenses, he can capture some of the export market as well.

    Is that third break light a Saleen thing or is that the way they ( Ford ) do it down under?
