Im just thinking outloud and looking for ideas.

I like the stock brake light housing as it extends the fender a bit. I was thinking of painting it the same color as the fender, metallic silver. The issues is that I have removed the stock turn signals and now have a hole that needs to be filled. How do you all suggest on how to fill the hole? I saw the "hood insulation clips" thread and they look alright but would really like it to be smooth. Maybe secure the clips in place with epoxy then use some body filler to smooth it out? Or just fill the hole with expoxy then smooth it out during the paint prep?

Lets hear the ideas

I just looked him up on photobucket. The housing turned out just like I want mine. Howerver I cant tell if he filled the holes from the stock turn signals or just added the aftermarket ones.

Clueless can you chime in. Maybe some closeups of the brake light/turn signals?

I put a big chrome washer behind the Kury Bullets. Filling the hole should be no problem, but you would end up with the indent still

I hope Painter or 460 chime in then.

SD76- the thread you are refering to is the one where they use the plastic clips for hood insulation. I have some of those and it does work, but I want it to be smooth like the hole was never there.

I dont think body filler will work on its own, to big of a hole. Maybe some metal wire kind of like rebar for concrete in the middle.

There was a recent post on this but you are looking for body panel buttons and you can buy them at any auto parts store or even home depot. They push in to hold in door panels and other body parts. They make them in various sizes and I forget who but someone posted a photo recently on one that fits very nicely into this spot.

OK...I know about the body buttons/clips. They do give a nice fit, but not what I'm looking for.

I want a smooth finish like the holes were not even there. How does one fill a hole in plastic? I got flush mount turn signals but they do not cover the entire hole.
