Pics of my stock looking tails? Look at your car, Now imagine it beige... There, saved us both time...

Seriously though, My other PC is dead and I can't put my camera software on this machine. It'll have to wait....

I'm thinking about going back to my stock tails and making a one off full clear ricer set.

5. break out the little black lines inside the clear part.
6. you may want to repaint the chrome on, the chrome in my reverse light spot looks rusted, only white.
7. heat the tar lookin stuff back up with the hair dryer, and stick it back together.
I hate to say it, DM, but you must have just done the pieces in the fenders. The pieces that are on the trunk are a lot harder to do, as they are GLUED instead of tarred. On the trunk lights, you have to CUT, I did mine a few days ago, and I'm working on posting the pics now. Give me twenty minutes and I'll post them as "Clear Tails" in General Chat.
