Freetime + boredom = change

Did a little rear end tidying up....pics could be much better, but I think they're visible. Add a couple light-up bolts and it should look pretty clean.

Before-



After-

Yep. Need a "in the daylight" pic.

Good rid of the license place light, and raised the plate up just under the taillight leaving about an half inch of fender visible below the plate now. I like it better than having all that stuff hanging off the edge of the fender.

If I had a spare fender and any kind of skill at body work, I'd try sinking that big ass taillight into the fender a bit as well.

Here's a better "after" shot. The license plate is no longer a mud flap.

(mine is pierced BTW, about a 1" gash from something flung up from the tire)


Anyway-after some "fiddling"...

Garage
Setting the tail light into the fender is called "Frenching" in autobody terms. It actually quite an easy task first get a tail light...such as this one trace out the outline of the lens onto the fender...cut out the outline from fender...mount the lite then you are done...well almost..there is a little bit of trimming and some filler needed, but that is the real basic gist of the job
