are you going to throw LED'* in there too? if you clear out everything, i would imagine you would need appropriately colored LED'*? i don't know...never done this before. my personal vote on the spoiler would be no. i looked at the pics of your car, and it has a clean look..just my vote

I'll probably forget about the spoiler and get a light window tint. If I happen across a white spoiler sometime for the right price, I'd say it'll have one.

My friend and I finally got the rest out the rears done. Turned out great. I modifed the approach I've seen on here a little bit regarding dremel attachments. I used a disc wheel to score a cutting line and then did the actual deep cutting with an engraving bit. I just seemed to have a better feel for depth with it. I could really tell when I had plunged deep enough into the plastic with the engraving bit before I started cutting laterally. It did not leave as wide a gap in the plastic either so things were easier to button back up with the silicone.

Zip ties and small clamps worked well to hold it into place when applying the silicone. Duct-tape to close up the other sections of the taillights and a shop vac to suck out the black plastic pieces from the turn signal section.

Had a little trouble popping the amber pieces out. We got a flathead screwdriver and popped the smaller end of the amber piece out first. The whole thing came out easily after that.

Anyways, here are some pics from this afternoon into evening. Finished it up with Silverstars of course. $40 for four bulbs (front and rears) is high but it sure looks nice.
