Tonka Summit Tail lights.

The Tonka Summit Arizona Needs more!!!

So..... I can't stand the area where the tail lights are supposed to be on the Tonka body, Paint = FAIL , Reflector Tape = FAIL.

Lets make real ones...

cheapo reflectors with sticky back tape from ACE Hardware,
a Dremel, a caliper(for measuring shape and dimensions) , and a Benzomatic gas soldering iron without the tip to heat up the reflector to bend into shape.

After Fitting , holes will need to be drilled for LED's behind the tail light lens.

NOTE: I have noticed that the putting light through the back of the reflector is not optimum.
So i will grind down the triangular shaped reflections to let more light through instead of bouncing on to much of an angle.
