Both the long, straight tails of the '89-'93 Cadillac Deville and the rounder, newer '94-'99 tails have been the donor taillights of choice for numerous mini-truck owners for some time now. The saying goes, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks," but CanDo Specialties is here to put a new spin on the old Caddy taillights that have made their mark on the mini-truckin' crowd.
CanDo developed a new Mini Caddy Taillight Kit that measures only 12 inches tall, 2.5 inches wide, and 1 inch deep. The company built the kit with the '94 Deville light in mind, but matched the outer curve to the curve of a '94-and-newer S-10 bed side. The kit comes complete with steel mounting buckets, aluminum light buckets with LED strips, laser-cut stainless bezels, red or clear lenses, three-wire taillight modules, wire taps, and stainless-steel hex screws. With all the necessary hardware, it really makes the kit easy on a do-it-yourself installer.
All you'll need is your trusty air saw, grinder, and welder, and in no time you'll be braking in style. Because this Mini Caddy Taillight Kit is extremely user-friendly, we decided to take it upon ourselves to install the new kit on our poor neglected Nissan Hardbody project that went to the Mini Truckin' project graveyard after the El Switcheroo dash swap and 'bag stories (July '03, Aug. '03, Sept '03, Nov. '03, and Dec. '03). We played the usual pranks and put stickers in hard-to-find places, wrote rude comments in the layers of dust (such as "Finish Me, Please"), and then finally got to work. Follow along as we give C.P.R. (Caddy Project Renovation) to a long-forgotten MT project. For more information, contact the companies listed in the source box.
