Biggest problem was that I ran into the reinforced section of the C-channel from the hinge that was welded inside the tube on the passenger side when I was cutting that hole. I had to use my plasma cutter to finish making a hole for it.

You can also see the license plate light (normal incandescent bulb ~ $8 from auto parts store) and my LED side marker lights ($7 from Tractor Supply) in the second picture.

Tail lights are Grote 53312 Super Nova's (24 LED's Hermetically sealed, $35 each) from here:

Do those small led backups put out a decent amount of light?? Enough to see behind you while wheelin??

3/4 reds- still need to add the inline rectifier and resistor so it runs at half intensity... plus i am adding 3/4 white back ups- once they come in ill wrap it all up... the fronts are amber and are wired like stock... i used the psc ep-26 5 pin flasher and the 2 wire led write up.

You build those front tube fenders yourself? Or are early 'Cloaks different from the main line?

the gap has since been filled: i ordered the mc ball weld on washers that fit the fender to help get them lined up- then bolted the flares on and welded the flares on... they are never coming off! also had a friend tig the inside against the psc defender armor.
