2. Kit came w/2 flat fiber glass piece that suppose to attatch around old tail light opening?

Thanks! Chris

Chris, you shouldn't have to grind anything!

The two fiberglass pieces go on the openings in the metal frame. Use the rubber gaskets off of the stock tail lights and put them between the metal opening and the fiberglass pieces. Each side goes on only one way to be correct.

I have some pics from my install. Let me find them and I'll post them here.

Still having problems, Chris?

The pics must be on my other laptop.

Let me blow the dust off of it and find the pics and post them here tomorrow.

When I wash the car and spray directly on the back, a little water gets in the trunk. I just haven't taken the time to put a little weather stripping inside.

I'm almost there but having trouble with the reverse lamp wiring. There is a pigtail with connector on the Daihatsu sourced reverse lamp. What does this lamp plug into? The hardware bag has a wire tap in it but I don't know which wire to tap into. Then do I run a single wire through the hole to the lamp? What about ground? Confused :( My shop manual is 400 miles away doing me no good right now.

On a related note, it would be handy if the hardware bag included washers for the mounting bolts. And if you're in the USA you have to drill two holes for the upper license plate mounts because the spacing is different than Japanese license plates.
