Rear view if anyone is curious what their'* looks like.

Nice!! Good pix too.. Love that SLR you got.

Now i know it'* a red car with gold stuff, but have you considered doing what Pete did, and making the turn signal red? I guess either would work in your case..
What are you doing with all these old parts?

Wow, that is beautiful. I am awaiting the delivery of my passenger rear light. A piece of my plastic cover broke somehow so I feel like my poor bonnie is injured. I just saw one for the drivers side of my car on Ebay and so far its only up to $50

This one was 40.00. The only thing that was missing was the retainer screws that hold on the end piece but I got some good advice from jr's3800 on how to take care of that.

Good Find Walter!! Man, I can't wait till you get the rest of them! Make sure to check out ebay. I found some on there before going for $15...this was back when I was looking for the tail-light on the trunk lid and had already paid $135 for it from the dealer.

If you want to do the orange part red like I did, and want help...I can come down and help you out. I already have the red tint film! Plus the all red tails would look sweeter on your red car. And it will be a good excuse to hit the Texas Roadhouse too.

I will probably hold on to the stock tail lights after I have a set of the SSE tails for a backup.

Pete, I read your post on how you did yours. Let me think on it for awhile after I get mine installed.
