That is what I wanted, a solid red LED 3rd. I am not a big clear fan either haha. But the 3rd will be going away in the near future, along with the antenna, gas door and fender emblems. I plan on just painting the handles though. Thanks for the compliments. I am still editing the thread.

I try to just set lil goals for trying to get some mods done. For you set a realistic goal, say by March 15th, 2011 deadline to get your roll pan molded and painted on there. It helps keeping me motivated to complete this stuff.

Not my style, but you have done an incredible job, looks very well put together and everything fits, good flow. Two thumbs up! Color match the trim on the tails to the body and go with a red third brake light will tie it all in.

Thanks for the compliments, nice color match idea. I have not thought about that.
