Outboard for sure. Looks like a couple of lumps stuck there in the valleys. Sorry.

I think that option two of having the lights inboard helps accentuate the unique shapes of the rear end. Just my opinion.

Both highlight different areas and think either would work well depending on what look you are after. I personally might do the outboard ones purely from the standpoint of practicality of keeping the water out of the light and safety point of view. We have laws here that also govern how far in from the sides they are allowed to be for safety sake.

Outboard. Have you considered making something like the 55 - 60 Corvette tail lights? They would not interrupt your body lines.
