Tail light not working

So I picked up a Boxer Metal rear fender eliminator. I sent out and powder coated and now it won't work. I'm thinking it has to do with grounding it but I'm not sure what to do. Do I have to expose some metal to get the tail light to work?

The brown wire from the tail light harness need to be hooked up to one of the threaded studs on the back of the tail light and all will be well.
