I added four courtesy door lights recently. My OCC had them blocked off but I discovered the wiring plug when I did my front speakers.

Nice touch Dick!

What's that an old "bug" in the garage?

Looks good and bright Dick,plan on adding them to my back doors soon but my front doors came
with them from the factory.Must be a option package or something.

I have an extra pair of rear ones if you need them. You can have them for free if you pay shipping. PM me a zip code and address if you want them.

Looks good! I could not find blue to match my car so I went with satin black....figured the black matched the black upper door trim behind the pull-straps and around the interior door handles. Wink

Mine also had them on the front but not the rear doors. I guess being an Oldsmobile these cars were somewhere between a Chevy and a Buick, so since Chevy had none and Buick had four they gave Olds two. Laughing



They do look SO much better with the lights added!



Painted the existing housings satin black on the front doors to match the rears. Gotta make it look "factory" Rolling Eyes



It's the little things that make you happy! Very Happy

Mike,
Your pictures are why I have them on mine now. My front ones were blue but had an opaque white and red lens. Fred told me they were off an Impala. Then when I got the rears in Tan I like the lenses a lot more. I painted the rear tan bezel blue but not happy with the match. Have SEM can on the way.

Then I found a set with the fluted clear and red lens in Tan. Swapped the lenses and bingo. No wonder my wife thinks I waste money on the Olds.

Hahahaha, sounds like one of my projects! I put three different rear-view mirrors on my '89 OCC before I was happy with the final look (1990 Deville compass mirror..haha).

I'll nab you a set next time I get a yarding hall pass from Misty. Very easy job, and there are usually a few Roady sedans and Fleetwoods at the local yards.

Thanks Mike.
My navy SEM paint came a while ago. Perfect match, I pulled the light part way out. Took out the lens and bulb. Masked the wires and painted. Popped it back together and now they match.
At least as far as I can tell in a dark garage. The power went out here for some reason. Computer and MiFi on Battery. I will shoot some photos in natural light when it quits raining.

The four horns a a must. I'll bet they sound good.
My next project is figuring out how to wire up the corner lights. Mine did not have the option but I have them in now but not wired in.

If FLasharoo passes on the rear lights, I'll take 'em. Same as the others 2 in front, none in the back. Funny part is the other two OCC I had, had 4.
