Martin LePage's unique re-use of stock turn signals

signal_stalk_mod_-_rear_view.jpg

 

Instead of shortening the rear signal stalks I removed tehm altogether.
 
I cut two signal shaped holes into the back of the fender.
 
I then trimmed the tops of the signals a little, removed the stalks altogether and mounted them through the fender using the existing hardware.

I trimmed the "surf board" fender and used that to fabricate a cover for the whole thing, including the existing turn signal holes. There is lots of clearance, and Ive never "bottomed out" against it.

I used crazy glue and drywall anchors to fasten the cover together.

Finally, I trimmed the license plate bracket in half and used the two pieces to attach the license plate.
 
(note install may be different for model year 2000 and older models)
