In Turning Wheels June 1987 they show them between the fender seam and the trunk lid centered up. On my 51 they were about 2 1/2 inches from the bottom to the bumper pan. Now thats a 52. My 48 had one on the back. 1/2 price deal:)

This worked for me based on a photo in the 1950 ACC booklet.

Dave Mottle, 532 East Ella, Corrales, NM 87048 is the SDC club keeper of the accessory instructions and templates. Send him a couple bucks to cover copying and mailing and he'll send complete instructions and templates to properly position and install your lights.

If any of you out there have original accessory instructions and templates, please send them to Dave so he can make them available to us all, and thank him for his service.
