Lots of photos please.

Re: Custom rear bumper in progress!

Back up lights in California have to be pointed downwards so's they don't blind other drivers. Pretty hefty fine too.

I've never heard of this requirement before. Must just apply to add-on lights, as OEM lights are definitely not angled downward.

FWIW, every violation in California is expensive.

True. But in BC you can't use a wired hands free with two earbuds.
