It was pretty easy, the hard part was tearing into the $35 Thinline fixtures Then it was just a matter of taking the interior parts of them and sticking them in the fixtures. No pictures at the moment, I broke my digital camera a couple of weeks ago and haven't decided on the replacement.

I took the whole assembly off the trailer to work on them. Drilled/ground the rivets off of the old sockets and pop riveted the bits and pieces of the fluorescents on to the old plate.

After looking at the link I gave...I probably should have purchased some of these and saved a few bucks, you will still have to take them apart to get the ballasts to sit off to the side so they fit properly.
