By Bill Tumas: You may have thought we were finished with the lighting upgrades on the front of our Weekend Wrench project car. Honestly, we thought we were done too. We started off with a set of these LED parking lights, then added the GT-5 light conversion, and finally finished it off with a set of Scott Drake's Tri-bar headlights. You're probably wondering, what's left to light up?

Believe it or not, back in the '60s, there was a rare dealer-installed option for a light up corral behind the horse. Scott Drake's decided to modernize this rare accessory by making an LED version, which is available for all '65 through '67 Mustangs. Today, we're going to install one on our Weekend Wrench project car.

For this installation, you'll need a Phillips head screwdriver, 1/4 inch ratchet, 3/8 deep socket, 1/2 inch socket, 8 mm socket, wire strippers, wire cutters, and, if you have fog lights, an 8 mm wrench.

The first step in the installation is to remove the factory horse and corral. Obviously, if yours is in bad shape, it's a good time to replace it. If you have fog lights like our car does, you may find it easier to pull off the whole fog lights bar as well, but if you're careful, you can remove just the horse and the corral.

Start with the two screws at the top that hold the corral to the bracket. Now, to loosen up the bottom bolt. Just have to get this loose, you don't have to remove it. Now I'll remove the 8 mm bolts that are back here that actually hold the horse and corral to the bars for our fog lights. And we have our horse and corral.

The Scott Drake kit includes these four LED panels that adhere to the back of the horse, this reflective panel that goes to the back of the corral, all of the necessary wiring, as well as brackets. Next step: remove the horse from the corral.

I should mention, the horse isn't necessary to remove, but it's easier to clean it, and it's going to be easier for you to see if we take it out. Since the LED panel is going to hold on the back of the horse with double stick tape, you have to make sure the surface is as clean as possible. So, just use some rubbing alcohol and give it a good cleaning. Once it's clean, we're ready to install our LEDs.

The LEDs are going to adhere to the back of the horse. If your horse is excessively pitted, they're not going to stick on properly, they may fall off, making it a good time to replace it. The two larger panels are going to mount the body. The two smaller ones are for the head and the tail. We're going to get everything kind of situated where it's going to fit before you stick it on. It'd pretty much fit like that, so now we can remove the double stick tape and we can install our LED panels. Make sure you don't press down too hard, just make sure they're stuck in place. Now, we're ready to re-install.

Once you have everything is adhered, it's going to look kind of like this. I want to make sure the wire runs down the horses leg towards this bracket, making it easier to hide. Now you can put the horse back in the corral.

Now we're ready to install our brackets. The recessed part here is where the factory screw's going to go. Top is threaded for the supplied hardware, to hold the reflective panel in place. You can see here where the lower bracket's going to mount to hold the reflective panel in place. In our case, there actually is no hole there, ours is further down. You have two options here: one is actually tap a hole and thread it in. In our case, we find putting a bracket underneath the horse and corral also works. We just test fitted and found the very bottom edge of this actually goes in the screw hole opening, where it holds the horse to the corral, so we're going to carefully trim the bottom. The brackets are plastic; they're very easy to cut. It doesn't interfere so we can put the factory screw back in place.

Again, we're going to fish our wires over this side here. Try to keep them running down the leg to keep them hidden. I'll install our reflective panel; start by putting the top screw in. Since we relocated the lower bracket below the horse mounting point, the screw hole's not going to line up. Since is a small plastic bracket, a small self-tapping screw would go right in. Now we're ready to put the horse and the corral back in our car.

There are several different ways you can wire up your light up horse and corral. In our case, we're going to wire them into the fog lights, so when the fog lights are on, the corral lights up as well. You can also wire it in your switch, in your headlights, or to the parking lights, whichever way you want to do it. In our case, we think it'll look good with the fog lights, so we're going to go in that direction there.

You're going to need plenty of wire. I'm going to hold the horse right there to get an idea of how much wire we need, and we're going to tape off our wire that we're fishing through our grill. I'm going to fish the wires through the grill. Slide it in and we'll re-install our hardware. Now we're going to re-install the top screws. I'm not going to make them tight yet, but rather just get everything in place. I'll re-install the screws that hold the bars to the horse and corral. I'll tighten the lower mount. Now we'll tighten up our top screws.

Next, we move on to the wiring. I'm going to fish the wires through the factory grommet we installed when we put our fog lights in place. Since we'll be tapping wires, we'll disconnect our battery. I'll be getting power off this gray feed and the ground's going to go to the factory grounding kit next to the battery. I just want to get an idea how much harness we need and I'm going to cut off the excess. I'll strip the ends, then install the supplied terminals. I'll carefully strip the gray wire. I just stripped the wire to install the connectors supplied by Drake. Connect the positive feed. Now, we're going to install to the factory grounding kit next to the battery. Now we can re-connect our battery and test our corral. Now we hit our fog lights switch and try out our corral, and the installation's finished.

The Scott Drake LED corral is a nice custom touch to your '65 through '67 Mustang that'll really make it stand out your net Friday night cruise in. You want to check with your local government to make sure having it lit on all the time is legal in your area. Installation should take you about an hour. You'll be back on the road in no time.
