Hello all! I just purchased a 73 Torino Wagon with a 351 Cleveland and I just love it. It needs a lot of attention and will restore it as I drive it. 





First question is how do I get to the bulbs of the side markers to replace them?

Let me know all! Thanks!

The front ones you get to them via under the hood. The rear passenger side you get to via the spare tire cubby and the drivers side you need to remove the rear tail light. Hope this helps.
