Both front and back lights were removed, on both buses.What strikes me as odd is that the lights were not reinstalled after the freebus experiment.so the body and paint team painstakingly rebuilt the shells of both buses, and put caps over the holes where the clearance lights used to be, as a tribute to their sacrifice lol(LB) (mt);
