    Might have to go up from underneath to get them. Haven't had to deal with an early cuda in a long time.

      Gees, we get that it has to be done twice because it has a left and right side.
      You didn't have to post it twice. :D

        ok so maybe I was just happy it was the one thing I did right all day! Impressed by these lights -heavy glass, metal housing, gasket - they built the crap out of those suckers - maybe we are just so used to plastic everything today. I see they should be amber bulbs for Plymouths in '68 so glad I pulled both to clean up and replace bulbs .....

          yep - just to clarify - unplug them first, then take off two nuts (3/8" IIRC) from bolts holding them on to grill, then remove whole fixture to bench where it is much easier to remove lens and get at the bulbs.
