Sounds like I am legal to fly at night except 91.205 says:

(6) One spare set of fuses, or three spare fuses of each kind required, that are accessible to the pilot in flight. My fuses are only accessible with nobody in the right seat as they are under the seat, LOL

Keep your spare fuses in an accessible place. I do - then you're legal. It says nothing about whether a blown fuse is accessible, or whether or not you can replace them in flight, or the intelligence of doing so when the airplane has already attempted to set you on fire once. Just make sure you can wave a spare fuse at the guy ramp checking you if that every happens and he asks about your fuses.

The real issue I have for flying at night is, even though my airpark runway has lighting, there are trees 60’ off my wing tips on short final.  I wonder if my new LED lights will let me see where the trees are.  I guess there is only one way to find out 😊

If you're 60' off the runway centerline, I'd have to ask you why you're still trying to put the plane on the ground, and not going around. From short final, 60' off the centerline, you're not getting on the ground on that approach...
