Re: Taillights 1933

The tail lights are the same on all 1933-34 Ford passenger cars. It is the tail light brackets, not the tail lights that you are inquiring about.

Re: Where do I drill the holes to mount cowl light on a 32?

Look on the underside of the cowl. There may be a re-inforcing plate there.
