Tail lights turned out well dude. They remind me of the Morettes, just in a single lens.

All wired up and working but only temporarily installed. The screws holding them in place are only temporary until I affix the studs on the inside so the housings will bolt into the stock locations

Are you going to mold those fenders in, or keep the jeep'esque bolted on look?
