The location for the Mk 4 license plate light/holder does not provide enough room for a standard plate ... resulting in the plate covering the handle.

Jeff Kleiner came up with a great modification to change the internals and the clear plastic cover to give enough room (about 3/8") of clearance to the handle. I also modified the light to use 2 LED lights instead of the 1157 incandescent bulbs. Basically I gutted the bulb holders and their support sheet metal; fabricated a new bracket and the drilled new holes for the LEDs. Here are all the parts before reassembly.



The LEDs were angled to maximize the 120 deg light fan on the plate.



Here are the results and the parts list.









Again, thanks to Jeff and the others that paved the way for this modification.

Great post. I did the "Kleiner mod" on my last build and was planning to do so again, but also thinking about using LED's instead of the incandescents. You've paved the way. Thanks for sharing.
