We're still having winter here and some parts I ordered are on back order so I've had some time to fiddle with making a tail light bracket out of 3/16" ABS plastic. I guess it's done. It bolts up and the light works. Now if it lasts a few years I'll be happy
I'm going to make another from the same pattern for the '08. Not sure yet if it will be plastic or aluminum. Here's a few pics of what I ended up with.
