This tail light swap is not a direct bolt it.
a set of flat stock straps will need to be made to mount the older tail lights into the newer holes.
The chrome Bezels on the older style tail lights will hide the seam on the out side of the newer tail light hole

hey Im about to do this conversion on my '94 g20 ! accidentally jumped the gun and cut off one of those big studs on the back of the housing!! oops looks like its time to break out my 110 MIG lol. this is very helpful. i dont have the chrome trim tho, prob gonna feather out the rim of the quarter panel housing with some bondo and just caulk the edges real nice or something, pics to come, thanks for the info!

what do i do here? the gap between the quarter panel and the tail light housing? bondo or rv caulk? did the mount just like wookee did but drilled and filed out the socket hole so i could use the '94 sockets
