Question Shorten rear signals? any one done that and have pics?

I shortened the front on mine already. https://www.wristtwisters.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=13086

What I'm really wondering is if any has shortened the rear signals AND are they holding up to the heat being closer????

I'm planning on doing it this weekend on the 100 deg day but, didnt want to miss out on advice if there is any heat issue with the exhaust?

I wanted to retain some of the stock the visability but, they look a bit odd hanging off the back with the fender trimmed up to them. Thats why I'm thinking shortening them.

Any suggestions on rear signal options? I'll try my own shortening this weekend.

I suppose you can remove the rubber spacer like some guys have on the front signals, just bolt the plastic body directly to the rear fender mount.

My rears are moved in because of the Jardine fender eliminator, they do look better not sticking way out. Going to do my fronts this weekend, since you guys helped me finally figure out how to get the spacer off.

Yeah Ive already shortened the front so it should be no biggie. Just worried about heat being closer and curious about the look.

Hey, that looks much better, moves them in under the exhausts instead of sticking out to the sides. Might do that to G's 599.

I bought a tail light integrator harness from the auto parts store for 12 buks and now my taillight functions as blinkers as well. then i just took off the whole rear fender unit, signals included.
