Truck-Lite LED tail lights

Has anyone tried using the Truck-Lite 4051 led lights? They retail for $12.99 so I'm wondering if I combine them with the plinth from Rovers North for $6.99 I'll have a great deal on high quality lights. Or would I need parts that I haven't thought of?

Truck lite site says they are 4 inches or 100mm.
NAS lights are 95mm
A fraction too big I fear.

no screw holes either. how are you planning to accomplish the fit? I haven't seen anyone use them. Post pics of the specific product(s) you're planning on using. Buy ONE and try it. No harm in spending $20 and it not working. Looking forward to your photos.

If you wanted to stick them on.. I have recently been using something in the automotive industry called panelbond.. Comes in a 2 part tube with a special one time use mixing tube.. They use it in late model cars to adhere the fenders etc in place.... That shit is good...but make sure you wanna leave it on there.. Not sure how you would get it off.. Or RTV or "the right stuff" is another good way to adhere them to the body..

If you want to be ghetto and genius all at once you could probably slather that stuff on some magnets on either side of the rear panels to keep them in place. No idea if you'll be able to make it look any good though.

X2 on the 3M panel bonding adhesive. It's amazing!
