BACK-UP LIGHT ON LOCAL YARD

I THINK U CAN GET THIS LIGHT AT A LOCAL JUNK YARD FROM A FORD COURIER. I GOT MY FENDER AND BUMPER LIGHTS FROM A COURIER AND IT WAS A PERFECT FIT FOR AROUND $8.00 IF U STILL NEED THEM LET ME KNOW AND I'LL TRY TO GET THEM FOR U.

I got one of my side marker lights from a B1600. I got my other reverse light from a parts REPU. Sorry, I only have one extra tail light that's cracked. It's missing a chunk of plastic.

silly rotorheads! trix are for mazdas!

These backup lights of which you speak are indeed identical to what came on the same year courier. Time to search the junkyards!

I used a pair of inexpensive small rectangular fog lights to replace mine. They work and look great.

Besides the Ford Courier, the backup lights on the Mazda B1600 72-76 are the same.

Its just a better mousetrap

I agree with Buito. A good set of fog lights back there do wonders while backing up in the dark. Especially if you have tinted windows.
In my first REPU I had a set of 100w PIAA's mounted back there.
But if you do desire the original lenses they are scattered around on Couriers.

Here is a little twist to keeping the original lenses. how about putting some small fog lights back there, and then modify the original housing of the reverse lights so that you can fit the lenses over the fog lights. this will retain the original look but offer better visibility.

If you check the local auto parts stores, you may find that the halogen backup lights they sell to clamp to a hitch are very similar to the original in size and style. Only much brighter!

I had halogen bulbs in mine and a dash switch to light them up for the yahoos that followed on high beam. Of course, the police took a dim view of that!

Sounds like you've done what some of us only've dreamed about... sounds more effective than getting behind 'em for a taste of their own medicine... don't tell me you did it to a cop!?! Now THAT smarts!

I use the cheapie Halogen driving lights from K-mart or Wally World. Way better and brighter than the stockers! they fit right in the original opening and mounted with no mods.
