Yes NameChanger is "MR. Cheap". I 'wacked' on my OEM rear turn signals to give them a slightly better look... here's how it was done.

Looks good!!!...How sturdy is the mount though???
They are not rock hard, but the OEM wasn't either. They don't jiggle or flop. They are tight and won't turn because they are inserted into a hole that is the same shape as the turn signal bracket. Then again, the more stout the spring, the sturdier the signals. :wink:

Looks good Namechanger, and I like that license plate too!

I did a slightly different version.

1) Unplug wires to lights (under rear seat), and fish wires through fender.

2) Unbolt lights and remove.

3) Pull off spacer, relocate to inside of fender, and rebolt lights.

4) Plug the lights back in.

With my version, the lights stick out a little farther than yours, but it was cheaper! :wink: Didn't have to buy a spring, solder, or shrink wrap! :wink:

I thought all this information was still in the archives.

Easy, Blitz, did we loose any information with the site change?

Damn, NameChanger... I was just looking at the 12 tonight( post shovelectemy) I decided that the whole set up would much better with the turn signals shortened. I took one apart, and was going to let that image sit in my brain for a day or two until I came up with the best course of action. Looks like you are 2 days ahead of me ! They look great, thanks for sharing your mod 8) .

I'm not sure Vinnie, this is the second article I've been asked about today.

If you are sure that it was in the archives, then there may be a problem.

Easy, thoughts???

When it gets cold in Jersey, BigStaint puts up his 12 and goes and talks 'waste management' with Tony Soprano. :shock:
