    Martian Lights.

    This is what the bulb holder looks like, the larger 4" lens just screws into the threaded metal ring which gets fixed to the vehicle. This is a stop/tail light unit, has a two pin bulb holder. The indicator will have a different bulb holder inside, single pin. The front lamps could be a similar type, ie an indicator unit, single pin bulb holder, but with a 5w bulb and clear lens. Or the early trumpet type.

    Etching Paint

    Tecnically you'll only need etching primer for non ferrous surfaces. You can spot prime areas without removing large amounts of paint, then when topcoating do the primed area then a slight blow over the surrounding paint to match. For steel a good zinc rich primer is usually used.
