Jimmyfloyd has done it. It requires a trunk lid swap and all the lights.

it'* possible....I think there was a small issue with doing it. Especially the lamp monitor on the SSEi cluster.

S1ofDSS put the 96+ lights on his 95.... and for the 96+ tails you will need the trunk lid and the tails. I believe the hinges 96+ are different than the 92-95

Pat is right on the hinges. Nice thing though is the 96+ are backward compatible. The 92-95'* would need to be changed for a 96+ trunk lid.

Correct. Hinges, trunklid, tail lights, inner and outer. Since you probably don't have the tail light monitor, you should be fine with the issue I am having. Still working on a solution for that, but for now I just removed a license plate bulb.

I can give you instructions on the tail lights if you'* like.

$90 plus shipping for all three tail light pieces.

Try to find a U-pull-it junkyard for the trunk and hinges. This will be much less than one that pulls and inventories the parts. Jimmy might be able to tell you how much he paid for his setup or might have something for you.

I got the trunk and hinges sitting in my back yard. It'* purple in color. Shipping might be tough on it.

And look at it this way. Not only is it a good look, but you too can give your friends the directions..when you come around the corner...look for the white car w/purple trunk.
