Good stuff kraz, very good. One word of caution, when you dremel that plastic, let it cool a bit or wear gloves before touching it. That stuff is **** hot and sticky right after cutting it, haha. I found out last Saturday the hard/hot way.

If you mean keeping the factory running/brake light and turn signals, most don't like the lollipops, the new Custom LED taillight eliminates the need for the turn signals, since they are integrated. kraaazymike's method seems to be the best....

Most have just cut most of the plastic below the light.....and keep the turn signals......

I'll likely bite the bullet and get the new Custom LED light....

Only because we find the OEM turn signal housings aesthetically unpleasing. Shaving them and using integrated lights gives a more clean look.
