Rear bullet-style turn signal
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: Here's how I installed my rear bullet-style turn signals. The metal "extender", which attaches to the dual seat support bolt, is actually a galvanized angle bracket, normally used for exterior wood structures like decks. I flattened it out, re-bent as needed and drilled a couple holes. Here it's shown on a dry-run for size, before painting.

The pictures don't show it, but I also used a grinder to round off the corners.

Definitely use primer when painting this kind of metal! I tried spray-painting without priming first, but the paint wouldn't stick at all -- it bubbled like a horrible sunburn.

Dang, I wish I would have though of that when I mounted my lights.  I purchased some Aluminum stock at the Home Improvement store, cut and painted it.  This would have save me the entire cutting and finishing (except paint) process.  I had to add a bracket even though I used a solo seat because I added the Sedona brackets and panniers that also use the same mount.
