I would not do the LED's. I put on some pretty bright ones off Ebay designed for a motorcycle after JCR flatfendered me and almost no one saw them when I had them on. Most are directional like a spot light. In the middle of the day, almost impossible to see. That and trying to make them work and be marker lights at the same time is difficult to pull off.

I switched to TSC incandescent round lights (F&R amber) put tight in the corner of the fender right next to the headlight and am happy how they turned out. I did keep the LED side marker lights.

Nice fender job BTW.

MI law states if your car came with them from the factory, then you need to have them on your vehical...

I still think it should have been an inch or so wider in the front, Just to protect the hood latches...if any thing dose by chance get past the 1tons and 39.5 and touches the bars on the fenders, the latch will be lost...but it's a slim to nill chance.... Looks swet Dave and JCR

If you want turn signals check out aftermarket motorcycle lights. I had two small adhesive type blinkers on the back of my old Kawasaki. You could slap a set on your winch plate and be covered from the front and side.

LOL

I am not worried about turn signals.

This thing is driven around Clarkston on a nice day, and in rocks.

JCR did an amazing job with this. I am already geeked about what they are gonna do next.
