Interesting mod - did you shrink the front lights too?

The hinge (is that the right word ? ) replacing the original has to be handcrafted.
It would be also possible to rework the original part, but I want to keep all the original thing as they are , to be always able to go back.

For the rear/stop/turning lights there are a lot of manufactures from cheep chinese , to expensive, check ebay ...

Another good starting point for a search, may be the rizoma web page:
https://www.rizoma.com/universal/indicator-lights

My plate lighting comes also from Rizoma.

I like it. The tail looks much cleaner with the small units.

Good job thumbs

I'm afraid not 100% street legal in germany, because only one turning light in front is allowed , afair ...
But they are so close , may considered as one ;-)

I know same in germany .... but you as morgan Enthusiast know that the round thing under the registration plate is the fog light.
Everyone else thinks it's a reflector ;-) Nevertheless I will add 1 or 2 small round reflectors (think I need 2) .
