68 gto tailight

Has anyone tried to replace corroded/cracked factory taillight sockets with the
larger 1157 style sockets by cutting a larger hole in the housing?

Mainly because because 68 housing are way overpriced.

Thank you,

I saw on line that someone makes the socket inserts (phenolic disc, contact,wire,spring, you may have to solder on the gnd that breaks off
