Very clean! Great example of intuitive style. Can you post a pic of the L-Bracket showing where it mounts it to the frame? I am having a similar dilemma with my tail but was not creative enough to think of using the existing plastic. A simple pattern or rough outline of the tongue would be nice too (showing roughly where to mount the turn signals). Then I can get back to work on my tail end. Those buns-of-steel videos I left playing in the garage all night havent been working; mabye my duc's got a secret stash of twinkies...
Its hard to get a good shot of the L bracket since I painted them black... Its really easy though. Just use the 2 bolts that the inner fender bolts too. I used longer bolts of course and remember that these bolts are NOT symetrical. The left bracket will have to be bent slightly to fit. My suggestion is to get everything bolted up losely then bend the bracket to fit. The brackets I used are from Home Depot... 1.5 in L's. Cutting the plastic piece is quite challenging but I can go through it with you on a PM if youd like. Basically you just have to be pretty good with the dremel to get everything symetrical and just how much you cut will depend on your tail chop.. some people leave more frame showing. I think my frame is cut to the maximun without messing with the seat lock.
That looks very clean. How does it look on the side with the seat lock?
Have you modified the tail light to shine white light rather than red on the license plate? I purchased a small piece of clear plexiglass, cut it to shape and cut an opening in the red plastic underneath, then glued the clear piece in place. That eliminates the possibility of being hassled for an improper license plate light.
