CLOTH SSE! Just like mine. :(


I already have an immaculate driver'* side tail, missing a chunk of plastic out of my passenger side, but the one on this car doesn't look too good, does it?

Is it me or are the left tail lights made better than the right? The left side seems to be all I find in good shape while the right side is delam all to hell. What gives?

They already popped the trunk, Just go and climb in and unbolt it, then grab it and go.

That seems to be what I've seen as well. I remember the day that I found *two* immaculate driver'* tails in the junkyard, could only afford to take home one that day though

I agree right is always hard to find, the left one must be made better!
I cringe when I look at those pics tho....
