Yep. Like Dame pointed out though, earlier models don't have the PONTIAC on the trunk lid, but do have BONNEVILLE on the rear bumper. With the appropriate added wire and waterproofing, this could be lit up in a similar fashion. I think it'd be really cool, actually...
MOS, you wanna get together in spring and do this to my ride? My bumper cover isn't the best as you mighta seen in some pix. But hey thats just scratches under the trunk...

We could give it a shot. I even have a plan to modify the instructions from Tech Info when I do my Pontiac Logo (can you say liquid acrylic boys and girls?)

Gold acrylic? Now, who has a steady hand to do the lettering.

Noooooo. I personally hate Gold trim. What I'm talking about is routing out the red on this pic



And the refilling it with a clear red acrylic so that it loks fairly stock, but will light up like tail/brake lights.

See, you made me spil my secret.

On Jason'* car, kinda like yours should be, it would be a matter of carefully routing out the Bonneville on the bumper, replacing it with clear plastic, and lighting behind it. Kinda like on

I see what you are talking about now. I was just thinking if I could paint over the black on my Pontiac logo with gold paint because of the gold trim. I see there are gold Pont emblems on some cars but I guess they are hard to come by.

With the gold pinstripe, and if you ever get the gold wheels, it'd look cool on your car. It shouldn't be that difficult, in non-shiver weather and with a small brush.

Or you can go to a hobby store and get some gold foil & try with that. Put it on, polish & then clear coat it.

Sorry for the double post. But this just came to me. You could buy the neon string that street glows buy. Drill the appropiate holes and lace the neon through. Then fill it in with glue from a hot glue gun. That way the wire is water proof and itll give more of a glue off if you use clear.
