Default Tail light mod...

Using the license plate post bracket and back plate to mount the after market universal light.

I also used the old OEM tail light reflector bracket to mount the mini turn sig lights.
The aluminum pack-plate still needs to be trimmed-off around the maltese light.
Not sure if I like this set-up yet. Just found out that this light only have two wires for the running and brake but will not work because it needs a ground wire added to it.




When it's all done, it should look like the tail light is floating behind the fender...

Hmmmm....................
