51 Mercury Custom Light Lenses

Perry SR from Sieberts Custom Paint and Body was working on a Mercury and wanted the grille to be just right. He decided on a grille bar made from oval stainless tubing in a V shape with lights on the ends. He found some lights that he liked from another old car, but the lenses were red and not available in clear. He talked to me and I said sure we could probably make some, but it will take some time to find the right material from what was available, design and machine the lenses. He said lets get started.
