2nd Gen TL Tail light retrofit

All right so I've be lurking and researching on here for quite a while. Putting leds in tail lights has been something I've always wanted to do. I became very frustrated with the lack of examples of people who have actually done a retrofit of the car so the time came where I got tired of fantasizing. Here is my progress so far on one tail light.


To do list:

Sand and Trim Acrylic Sheet that I have
Mock up how heatsinks will sit in the housing
Spacing of the acylic and mock up of how it fits
Connect Leds to their respective "bulb" connector for a plug-and-play fit
Mock up the red lense to get an idea of a final fit
Figure out the best way to attach the two pieces together

Goal:

To have a matte look for running lights and to have the Brake function more exposed.
