im undecided, the pics are too small to tell... i often considered doing that myself but was unsure of the outcome.... the other issue i had is i dont think it looks right having 2 different pieces... id want to fiberglass it to be seamless

I like the look, but I think that it would look even better if something could be fabbed to go where the lights are on the trunk so that the trunk/previously lighted section would look more like one solid piece.

Looks like a Subaru WRX. Not my thing. I think it'd be nicer to just fab up some super cool tails.. like from some badass '60s boat or something. Those '60s 'banker' cars had some nice ones in their time. I'm sure you can find a set that would look nice.

I'd like it if they were all tinted, but not split up like that.

lol, a 60s boat? i dont think i follow you on that one...post a pic to give me an idea of what youre talkin about plz.
yeah, next thing is clearing the tail signals out. ive seen the writeup, it is that much harder to do than the front? the front ones were a piece of cake.
