Close out panels / covers for trunk wiring
« on: September 05, 2021, 10:36:39 PM »
Hi - does anyone make covers to go over the tail lamp and marker lamp wiring?  If not has anyone custom built panels to go over them?

Not really but the wiring harness can be managed better. The wiring is provided with conduits that clip on under the housing.
I don't think I've ever seen custom covers either.

I see a lot of cars at shows with trunk close outs that look really nice. I suppose you would have to make them yourself. Havent seen anything commercially available but havent looked either.

I did manage to find this option which has panels for all 4 sides.  I'm going to see if the vendor sells just the tail lamp panel, as it definitely takes up some trunk space.

Just FYI the above mentioned company has no phone number and they don’t respond to emails or the contact form on their site.  Not sure if they’re in business any more.
