Brandy, I have a tail lens cover that matches yours that you can have. I just replaced all the lights on my 1977 scamp with new led lights. I checked your photo and it matches the ones from mine. I'm pretty new to this site, so not really sure about how messaging works. If you can message me with contact info, we can get this in the mail to you this week. John Hunt.

Donna, have you already taken your wedding cake lights off? If so how much bigger is the hole behind them that the new LED's do not cover.

I am thinking of changing mine as well but worry that the hole behind may be a lot bigger than what the newer ones will cover and I am not sure I am any good at filling. :-)

Brandy's square tail lights would be original...........my family had a '77 Scamp back in 1980 and it had the square tail lights and I believe rectangle side marker lights. Good luck on your search.
See how I learn stuff?

Carol, they're still on the trailer. Even if the holes do match up, I plan on filling with Magnum Marine/Plastic Fiberglass Repair. It's a two-part putty, you cut off a chunk with a knife and knead the pieces together until all one color (kinda off white), roll into a sausage and jam it in the hole. It's waterproof, sandable and paintable. Very easy to use. I used it in the holes in the front when I took the Stinky Slinky tube off the front of the Scamp. I want the new LEDs to have something solid to grip into. This stuff is available at Lowes and Ace Hardware (at least), I've bought it at both places. About $4 a tube.

Thanks Donna for the info will have a look and see if I can find it up in my end of the world. Funny the reason I haven't taken my broken Stinky Slinky holder off is I was worried about what to do with the holes!!! Did you need to paint the holes left over from the Stinky? If so what did you use to match?

Thanks for the info - need all the good advise I can get on the home handy man department.

No Carol, I didn't paint the plugs. Although I could... they're pretty small. Actually now look more like smushed bugs from towing! I don't find the look to be distracting. Although I have thought about covering the patch with some decals. How about some bullet holes?

Thanks Donna, now all I have to do is wait for it to get warm enough to actually do some work outside. Snow again this morning and the white stuff from the big Christmas storm is still with us.
I could *really* use a nice hot beach someplace about now!

Or you could add a shelf using the same holes like I did in my Fiber Stream.

What a creative idea Frederick. Love it but the Scamp has bunks running across the front so a shelf would stop the top bunk from being put down.

You got me thinking though. Perhaps I could use the holes to hang a net for storage there. That could be emptied when we want to put the bunk down. Will have to take a closer look. hummm.

That's a great idea!

With the bunk down, on mine there is about 2" at the top for the wood support and 4" at the bottom for the banana cushion. That would be a great spot for a net or bag to hang the bunk supports and a few other things like the umbrella or rain coats.

Now I've got some to do some conceptualizing.

Edit to add => Thanks Carol, I now know what I am going to do on the rear window as well. Make a pocket that hangs from the wood ledge for the table to hold things like books and eye glasses while in bed.

John, I'm new to the site. Just purchased a '78 scamp and I'm in need of a Aluminum 2-element base plate for the rear taillight. I have the square taillight and was wondering since you replaced yours, if you still have and would like to sell the aluminum base plate? Thank you. Jackie

Which LED's did you use?

You're entry is just below. I have the square ones that the original post had or has. I'm thinking of switching on our '76 trailer. Which LED tailights did you decide to use on your trailer?
Thank you.

Mike
