I like them. I wouldn't do them on my car because I have a black car, but on the lighter color cars (such as white, yours) I think it will look sweeeet! :P Nice contrast to the rest or the car.

If I decide to keep the clear and do the other one and the trunk lights, which are put together like the front 92-95 corners, I guess I'll need red LED'*. As long as I can make them work with sending my DIC into a fit.

You can get stuff that goes on the bulb to make it red instead of having to do LEDs with resistors. It'* called gel, and it'* just the plastic insert DJs use on their overhead lights. It'* a thin plastic that doesnt' melt and you cover the bulb with it, It would be nice!!! I say it in a nother topic, maybe do a search....

you mean on the lens itself the red is ontop of the clear part? I'm seeing fireworks but they are still 2 hours too early for 4th of july, and they are very illegal fireworks for Mn too, they shoot, and they explode, both are no, nos, here in our great state!

Yes.. the outer lense is acutally RED on 96+ and the inner lens is clear.. I tried tacklin the clear tailights before.. and it won't work.. and or too much hassle to try and think of a way of removing the red without makin it all hazy
