A fifth grader once asked me how to spell fitna, as in "I'm fitna go shoppin'." Well, at long last I'm fitna put the correct tail light and bracket on my runabout. I wonder if somebody who has one can tell me how far from the corner the bracket is mounted.

Horizontally it is centered on the rear body sill.
Vertically: 1

The '15 body I reconstructed still had what appeared to be an original steel bracket inside that corner. It extended just far enough to catch the tail-lamp bracket's one hole closest to the corner. I drilled the hole for that bolt from the hole in the bracket. The second hole in the tail-lamp bracket when bolted to the first hole provided the placement for the second hole in the body.

Maybe yours has such a bracket inside?

There's nothing inside mine but wood, so 2" it will be. Thanx.

Umm, that's 2-9/16" to the edge of the forging if you look at Ron's tape measure Steve. :-)
Just givin' ya a hard time. :-)
Fast journey forward 2 years into July of 1917 with me: A no-name bodied, Milwaukee assembled Runabout shows 2-3/8".
Similar to Ron's photo.
I sure ain't got no "fitnas" but I understand fixin' to go to the grocery or some-such... :-)

Duey -- I guess those Kansas folks can't pronounce "fixin'" properly.

That's no surprise, they can't even pronounce "Arkansas." :-)
