Signal relocation - my way

Here's what I did today.Made a mounting bar for my rear signals. It mounts right under my license plate light. Then I moved my helmet locks to where the signals are normally mounted....to cover the hole. What do you think?
Sorry about the pics, I took them with my phone. My girl friend comes home with the digital camera tomorrow evening. You get the idea.

Looks good. Yes, give us bigger pictures tomorrow.

Nice job! Just a suggestion but maybe if you cut the shafts shorter to get them tucked in a bit more for a leaner/narrower look. Wish I had thought of this mod before I drilled holes in the sides of my brake light housing! lol Nothing that a couple stickers couldn't fix tho. hehe

I thought of that, but I prefer to keep all the parts original. That way if I wanted to return them to their original set up, I could do so easily.

Garage
What is the wedge at the 90 degree angle of the bracket made of? Do they bounce around any?

Metal, same as the rest of the bracket. It's spot welded into the corner from the underneath. No bounce at all. What I really like is the way the helmet lock fits right over the old signal location.

Nice job! What did you use for material and where did you get it so others can try this?
