New lights for the exterior

I'm replacing the running lights, scare light and stop/turn/tail lights. I'm trying to get this thing road ready for work. No time to wait or money to spend on OEM lights. So I'm using the grote bullseye lights that match OEM. For running lights. I'm replacing the scare light with a sealed clear incandescent back up from a truck supply store. The kind that mount In a rubber grommet. The tail lights are the monarch 4-1/4" the square ones. Well I'm fabbing up a mounting plate of aluminum to mount the replacement lights in. Again the sealed incandescent in rubber mounting grommets. Ill take pics of the before and after.
Any thoughts on this? Let me know

The rubber mounting grommets use a 4.5" hole that's all you need. I just made a mounting plate to attach over existing housing
