Default Making New Tail light

Had some extra time at the shop so we decided to design a new light assembly. Hope u guys enjoy the process. We sketched out an idea added dimensions that would jive with the internals. Designed around it. Failed miserably and tried again till we got it right. I am currently putting it together and testing it. Feel free to comment. Thanks
