I'm not a very good welder so welding little patches together might not turn out very well.

Anyway, here is a little concept drawing to give you an idea of what i want to do. I bought different tail lights that are going to fit right on there, so yes I'm cutting the metal where the original tail light is.

Call me stupid, but I think I'm going to go for the fiberglass / metal frankenstien. Im going to do alot of research and experimenting though before i take the plunge.

When we are taking about expansion and contraction of the metal, can you give me some idea of how much it expands and contracts relative to the glass? Are we talking like a 1/4 inch here or thousandths of an inch?
