I am excited about everything on the car except the rear, but I am stil uncertain whether I will continue to like the new rear that I photoshopped... that is why they are working on an extra trunk lid instead of the original!
someone has already put vynal over the center trunk lense

Personally i dont like the look because it reminds me of the Rear of a Acura

Im not sure, i like it, but it defianately would have to be an in-person judgement to wether or not it looks good, and take out the ambers! lol...


keep in mind that you will be loosing the keyhole for the trunk - not really an issue tho, unless your batter dies in your remote AND the solenoid fails in the latch

what about tinting just the reverse and turns? I think the solid red line would look groovy

I hate it. Looks like a Dodge Stratus rear end.

I agree it does look like a stratus. But it is most definitely different, the red supercharged script looks tight, it'* got to have something there to break up all the black.

What about going way custom and taking out the remaining tailights and smoothing that out and adding maybe some Vette tailights to the trunk??
