Yeah Pete, that'* a great idea on the clear plastic! The only reason I don't like the 92-95 tails cleared is because they do not match the reverse lights. And I dont like seeing the bulbs. So you just made me want to clear mine!!

yeah the plastic coupled with continuing the lines over the reverse lights really made the light turn out better then i could have hoped for.


only took 3 trys to get the plastic right, so that the pattern lined up with the black lines perfectly all the way along


Thanks for all the kind works guy

ill let is slide this time



Pete, if you do this mod i would sugest you keep the black frame thats around the amber section instead of cutting it off cleanly because it helps to hold the lens tightly in place so it doesnt move around. Im sure you could cut it off clean you would only have to gleu the lens at that point i think.
