Excuse my ignorance but why would blue dots be illegal?
When they were first used taillights were much smaller and the light was strongest from the center because of the bulb. Putting a blue glass dot in the center cause the tail light to appear violet or purple from a distance, confusing Grandma and Uncle Jake on the way home from the bar. Since the only people doing blue dots were crazy teenage hot rodders, drag racers and commie sympathizers, they were made illegal in most states way back in the '50s or '60s. Once it's on the books it stays on the books, as it's just another tool for police to stop and search.

I love the blue dots. Not legal here in Nebraska or I may have gone the Buick way rather than the '59 Caddy.

What is the Buick look for the SSR? :unsure:

I know the '59 Caddy. The only Buick look I know is the '56 tail light lens in the '55 Chevy housing. A great upgrade for the '55.

One of my favorite tailgate treatments is @WyoSilver's look from the Tri-Fives Nomads with the vertical chrome stripes. Gives an elegant look to the tailgate. Maybe it works so well is because the SSR is silver too. But I think it would work on most Rs, like an Aqua Blur.

Here is my rear end with the chrome spear I made a few years back. View attachment 602754
I saw it at the Cinci International Rally. Of all the "rear spears" I like yours the best because of the way fits around the tail lights. It doesn't just lay flat against the body and tail light, but is extended out creating a 3D look. :)

CharleSSR great to see even your SSR is wearing it's mask, sorry I just had to jib jab you about the blue mask on the rear license plate. On the serious note, I like your rear spoiler.
