With the lights that I am using in the one piece panel for the GT, I have no back up lights.
Over the years there have been a few times that I wished I had backup lights.
I know that I have seen reverse lights moved down to where the reflectors were in the bumper.
Can anybody help me out and tell me what light fits?

Pilot Navigator back up lights will fit exactly in the spaces where your rear reflectors are. Remove the reflectors, the light brackets and fit them right in. They look great and work better than the OEM units. You can find them on Amazon, Ebay or at Pep boys.

No problem. I'm here to help. Working on the Corvette C4 panel for my 87 GT as well and its quite a fun but involved process. Going LED on this end. Don't be swayed by those telling you that you will need those reflectors. Reflectors haven't been used on cars and trucks for many years. The taillight lenses themselves (when turned off ) reflect enough. You might try to locate my build thread for some ideas. The hardest part is precisely locating metal brackets that will hold this panel in place
