pics of step by step custom flushmount tails

this is kinda streetrod stuff, but can be applied to anything with a rollpan. i used a light kit that comes with a certain metal piece with a cutout, lense, and a back bucket thing. you take the metal and shape it to the piece that you want lights in, then weld bolts to the back for the bucket, then weld it in. had the camera so i thought i would post, maybe it will help someone out.

this is on the driver side rear fender of the 51 ute that i am working on. i used a ir cutoff wheel with 3m green corps cutoff discs, ir 301 air grinder with 3 inch 36 grit roloc disc, millermatic 175 with regular wire, 75/25 mix, various body hammers and dolly's, and a stud gun to help move the metal that i couldnt reach from behind. smoothed out with 80 grit on a da and ready for some icing. it took me about 3 hours from start to finish.
