Looks really good!
I think it will look sharp leaving the "flaps" balck, can't wait to see. Won't they hassle you during your vehicle inspection for the shaved sidemarkers or maybe if they aren't there they won't know they are missing?

Looks Good!

It can be zip-tied and tucked away.

I don't think it is a requirement. Looking out in the parking lot at my place and the only car I see with side markers is a Mustang.

How do you get rid of a side marker light? Like this:

For the side markers just pull the bulbs out and zip tie the wire/socket out of the way. The bulbs don't affect the turn signals in that they won't make them blink fast.

Before you paint that panel make sure you bake them so they can heat cycle and re-sand so they don't pattern after you paint them.

Thanks for posting these pictures. I can't decide if I like these or the 505s better.
