Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, LED lighting on the rear

I painted the inside of the clear acrylic part with a smoke plus green/black acrylic - inline with my blacked out look for all the glass on this Scorcher

and painted the white nylon part with a primer, then metallic, the varnish

The fit of the license plated light holder was good ( on the third attempt ! ), here's the results of much tweaking of a curved part on a curved surface:

and from underneath:

It attached using the stock hole, I've used an M2 5mm button cap

I couldn't wait to test the rear light cluster with some LEDs - the holes needed slight cleaning up with a sharp 3mm drill bit until the fit was snug

I was concerned my blackout on the glass was a little too much, but the effect was cool:
