tail light rebuild

Hello,

This pic is from an old blog post I found online but it represents my trailer pretty well although I do have the cans. I think I have a plan for lenses and LED but am stuck on a very basic question. What does each light supposed to do? What was the original design location for turn, break, reverse, park, etc? What function was the rectangular light (marker or turn signal) or is is just supposed to be a reflector. Thanks in advance for any help.

Far outside is probably a reflective lens
Center appears to have a backup light lens and running light
Left and right of center backup is probably brake and turn signal but maybe only the right side lens is turn signal with both having running lights

I have a complete set of lenses for the style of rear light, if you need them, just pay the postage

Hello all,

So i got the tail lights figured out. Thanks @rbs, those lens did not fit but ill pass them along to someone else. Went with integrated led lights but the rectangular marker (on the left in the original pic) is my current issue. I thought it was a standard marker light but the its smaller. All the markers i bought for the top are 4inches. Any ideas where to find this part?

You might find that that outside light space will use a marker light.
Look at at Bargman Trailer Lights 34-17-808 or Optronics Trailer Lights MC48RB
