This mod is super handy if you have an ORH top!
it gets the brake light post out of the way so you can reach the velcro easier plus it looks a lot better without the stalk sticking up in the middle of nowhere
I used a spare tire mount that PhilD was kind enough to sport me for another project (the angled tire carrier is still in the works!)
anyway, start by cutting the stalk off of the mount flush with the mount and touch it up with some flat black rattle can.
Remember, the mount is made of magnesium, you do NOT want to get this ignited by some freaky accident and don't try to weld it!
Anyway it was a really simple project, just cut down and ground stock parts, made 2x 3/4" wide brackets from 1" angle iron and drilled a couple of holes in them.
the pics are pretty self explanatory.
And here's finished result
