Well, I`m about done with one of the light pockets in my spoiler.
The space to the outside will get Black mesh.
I wanted to make the pockets the same size as the turn signal hole.
I think being a bit larger gives it sort of a modern day look.
Most of the newer cars are using larger pockets down below.



Actually, I may just have mesh and put the driving lights up in the opening of the nose because I just realized how low they would be.

Looking good Mike. What did you use to mold the buckets?

I have a small vacuum forming rig and I used 1/16" Styrene for the pockets. I glued them in with Evercoat semi-rigid epoxy adhesive and I`m moulding them in with Evercoat Poly-flex flexible glazing putty.

Thanks, out of all the different things that people have tried to use on the Aero nose I still think yours is the best.
