As far as the Freightliner hitch plate that also looks fantastic! I like how cleanly the lights are integrated, though I'm curious what the additional holes are for. I presume the mid-size holes just inboard of the brake lights will be for trailer wiring connections?
The holes below the brake lights are for the backup lights. They're the same basic housing so it made laying out the plate easier, but the parts house didn't have the backup lights in stock last Friday. I've got them in my hand so I'll get them installed this weekend.
Yes, the smaller holes toward the middle of the plate are for the wiring plugs. The left side will have a 7 way flat blade ("RV" style) and the right side will have a second 7 way round pin.
I wanted an old school look on the Freightliner, the only LED's in it are the headlights, so I went with old skool flange mount brake lights and backup lights and then went overboard and tapped the mounting holes rather than thru drilling them. It takes a LONG time to GENTLY hand tap 17 10-32 holes!
The grill is looking ok, but there is a long way to go. I think I've trimmed the grill as much as I want to. I could probably trim it a little more if I have really had to, so now I'm going to work on massaging the intercooler mounts some.
