Ok so let's talk about the tail on this thing. Like I've mentioned before, I bought it from steezin, sheesh, I guess over 3 years ago at this point. Whoever started it had good intentions, but it was never quite how I thought it should be. It looks like they had the intention of using small round lights, which wouldn't look bad, but I've decided to take it in a different direction with the cat eye brake light.
First thing was to make some plugs to fill in the holes.
Next is making a home for the light to set into. I had some Baltic Birch plywood lying around collecting dust so that's what I used.
And there you have it, all done! Just kidding, just an idea of what it will look like....kinda.
Ok so I made a little piece that drops down to attach a new license plate/blinker plate. It's a bit wonky looking at this point but it gets better.
Here is the license plate/blinker plate I made. Just bought some sheet metal at the hardware store and made it just big enough for the plate. I made some ears for the blinkers and bent them over.
Well this is pretty much it, pretty simple, just a bit of time and patience. Now onto everyone's favorite...fiberglass
Let it begin. I'm further along with this, but don't have the pics to prove it, so we will end here for now.
