Been fixing the rear tail lights, wire brushed, sprayed with bright galvanizing paint and then fronts clearcoated. Playing with some closed cell weatherstripping for a gasket, will see how well it works and keeps out the water. Replaced all the rusting screws with stainless pan heads. Put the fiber optic lines back into the back of each tail light. Also rewired one of the overhead fixtures over to LED strip lights off a roll for about 5 bucks a light:

Repaired tail light assembly:

Upgraded fixture to LED (LED closest to camera, original near front):

First time hooked up to the truck, going out next weekend. First and only time before deconstruction starts:
