Nice. Makes sense now. We still need to finish the hood latch / catch/ headlamp / mount / horn bracket thing. Laughing

Bracketry progress. Looks like a pair of left and right miniature oval taillights.

looks like you are having way too much fun.

Question: will these things use stock vw peanut front turn signal gaskets? If so, that was pretty sneaky of you to not mention it yet. I originally thought you were going to just weld the housing to the body, but now I am not sure if that is the plan seeing all the work going into the braketry.

Either way, looks like fun.

/\Thanks nshaddox.
They are going to be welded in. It uses a Nissan Juke side marker, which mounts from the outside, but now has to be removable from the inside.

Now their ready to weld in. Light guts remove from backside via nut. Bulb holder clears with ease when hood shuts. All good.
