I have had as many magnet lights disinigrate as I have busted fixed lights.  I mostly just pull durring day light hours due to this.  I have a heck of a time keeping the lisence from getting beat up and lost also.  It is nice to know that the mill could posibly be considerred differrent then a trailer.

You do have a mill to be proud of leggman.

I'd add lights now while everything is nice and clean. Legal or not, it would probably take the same amount of time to do it now as it could discussing it along side the road with law enforcement. ;D Nothing against the police, they're just trying to keep folks safe. Please believe this, you will get stuck out somewhere after dark and wish you had them.
What I do is make "light cans" out of a piece of pipe that your light fits into and weld a piece of flat steel on the end. They are bulletproof.

I actually agree with Justallen.  I do personaly have every light on every trailer broke or shook apart but I also have had to leave things sit all night due to this fact.  The only thing that saves me is I never go anywhere.  If I was going to use it often I would want it right.  I still like ox's ideal of not needing a lisence.  If you own lots of stuff, you can spend lots of time at the lisence office.

I decided to once again change my mind and make the tail lights removable. I will only use them when I need them.
I didn't get them mounted because I ran out of daylight. I did get the handle for the peavey yesterday. 9.99 at lowes

Got them done and mounted. A couple of turns with a wrench and the whole assembly comes off to be put away until needed again. I don't know if the pics will show it but the lights do work.

Tack a couple of small handwheels on those bolts and you don't even need a wrench!
