Got rid of the anchor and installed this. Ordered a few bits from tst Industries.
I see their site doesn't have a section for the 2018 model. Can you link which parts you ordered?
Now that's ten times better than the OE part.---
My thoughts are intended to provide a sounding board for your own.
Some of what I say may go against your own thoughts and may seem harsh, targeted and malicious.
This is not my intention – I am simply using my experience, including other peoples, as a way of debating and giving advice - of which there is no guarantee that it's correct
Ordered LED low profile light.
Due to the CB's under tail being round I had to grind the bits down. I used a bench grinder, cause it has a round wheel. I sanded the bits at an angle and made small grove as well.
I also added some rubber backing to the ends, where the bits meet the under tail. I glued them to the metal then trimmed them with a knife.
Next, installed the led light. I bought a 5/16 grommet from home depot.
I have three small holes in the under tail that can easily be plugged up with any OEM plugs from Honda if need be.
I found this to be very clean, minimal design...no clutter. If something really nice ever comes out, i could always remove it and replace it. Based on most designs out there the holes would probably be covered.

Sweet install! Nice work.
"I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal. People know me. I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany."
Thank you. For some reason the bike feels a lot more nibble. 😁
Any reinforcing on the other side of the plastic (inside the tail)?
