Hey Bas, what about # 1 with the number plate down between the reversing lights. I did that on a 4x4 when i did a custom tray, looked ok.

Not simple, is it?
I rather like Busy's idea, but do you want 'nice' or 'mean'?
Who does the van need to appeal to? and does the rear styling fit the philosophy of the rest of the van?

Wife wants "nice" me and my son whant "mean" but for No 1 the window I have is in a alloy frame, and openings, so this would be a big + I guess for access to the back. The rest of the van can be built around the rear.......

I went #4 on my first van but used truck lights brake-indicator-brake on each side, mounted proud, and then hit the lot with Shadow Tint (might be called Night Shades now??) so they all looked black until you hit the pedal or indicator. Looked pretty good (old LTD style?)

You could onle see a row of rectangular black lights with the number plate in the middle until they lit up. If it was the brakes there were four of the buggers to let people know that the brakes had indeed been applied!!

Then had a small low-mount spottie on the tow bar as a reverse light.
It's not how hard you hit it - it's how you hit it hard

yeah, chop it and add a pop top ;) :p
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"
