Default Taillight Lenses

How easy are these things to remove? My psngr side one has a crack I want to tape up from the inside, and I eventually want to find "newer" ones from a wrecker. It'll help the appearance of the back end of my car (even though the clearcoat and most of the paint from the trunk deck lid is gone, but that'* a different story...)

Awesome - thanks Jim. Did u have a hard time finding the assembly (in good condition)?

Also, where are some good places to look for this kind of thing in our area? Also, what'* the process - show up and rip whatever off the car, or call before going... Never done this before.

Thanks!

They had some at Cooksville Auto Recyclers on Mavis north of Dundas. You can call them or just show up. The parts like lights etc are all inside the building. Cost me 50 bux. Was in great shape to. For other car parts they had 3 87-91 Bonnes there

Best Buy on Dundas at Winston Churchill. Cost about 500 and change for installation. Remote starter, keyless entry and running light flash.

I suggest you let them install it

Ours came from J. C. Whitney about five years ago. $39.95 + *&h. Mounted the receiver next to the HVAC programmer since all of the needed wiring was there. Just does doors and trunk but was all I wanted.

Took power from PDL circuit so three wires to PDL and one to trunk release. Aboutan hour to install mostly to figure out the instructions. (These wires if PDL is ground circuit and these if...)

Opps, my bad, i forgot to tell you I also purchased a CD deck, 2 front speaker and installation. So that would elevate the price a bit.

The remote starter is the best idea since sliced bread, no regrets on that one. Now if my fuel pump was working
