[DML] Re: Tail Lights

If you want to keep the origional boards there are a couple of things
you can do. Scotch-Brite can be used to clean up the copper traces and
rivets. You can use very small screws and nuts inside the rivets to
tighten them up. You can solder the rivets to the traces. Reshape the
bulb sockets so the bulbs fit better. Clean the springs that touch the
center, bottom of the bulbs. Clean the bases of the bulbs with
scothc-brite. This can do a lot. The ultimate is to replace the
boards. The vendors have a much better made replacement, the ONLY
downside is the expense. 
 As I understand it the only part on the car made from ERM is the rear
license plate frame..
