Here's one for all the non luggage rack, fender delete folks that want to stay "legal". Cheap and reversible, just need a hammer, maybe some paint, and a couple $2 license plate reflectors. I also covered the shock reservoir with vinyl because...well...because I had some vinyl...#allblackeverything

Nicely played! Now why didn't I think of that! I wonder if they make little amber ones for the front?!
Ebay has red blue green and yellow. Just type in license plate reflector bolts.

Maybe a dumb question but did they come with that plastic (?) tab and is that how they are anchored in? The ones I see all have wing nuts.

Back when I was using the tiny red side markers I used a short piece of black rubber hose that fit nice and snug inside that extra hole in the frame. It was probably a piece of scrap fuel line. Then I simply threaded the reflector stud into the tubing and it expanded like a wall anchor. You could not pull it out. You had to unscrew the stud to pull the tubing out. Worked great!

The "little plastic tabs" are a part from a plate mounting set. Lots of plate sets and car dealerships have them around for mounting a front plate in the punch holes on a bumper cover. The plug goes in, but I had to use a hammer, I also used a pry bar to pull one out just to make sure it would be reversible. The plastic is very soft so when you turn the little side marker it actually cuts groves in the plastic and pushes the tabs out against the groves inside the mounting point. This, by the way, is the most interest I've had from any mod I've done so far hahaha

Dunno, haven't had those reflectors on since literally day one. I guess that is right.
