I guess I'm lucky that the designers made the rear lights the way they did. Absolutely ideal for a Kammy The center brake will probably be covered up with extra bands. I did think about cutting out a hole and putting in a plexi window so the center brake would be visible.
Re: your roof rail inserts. You could get some stainless countersunk allen bolts to hold the inserts in. They'd be flush and look better too.
The wheel skirts look awesome. The boattailing on them is fantastic and should join seamlessly with the belly pan. Have you tried removing the rear wheel with them on?
I've make new roof rail covers from aluminum scraps. Looks slightly better. I think I will go with the countersunk screws. The gap between tire and reinforcement bar inside the skirt is about the width of a finger, so no way to get the wheel off without pulling the skirt. Fortunately, it comes off in about a minute, so no problem. Putting it back on is trickier and can take up to 5 minutes.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
