hi
i know its been done before but i thought i would give it a go
ive pulled apart the tailights and removed the coloured lens in the blinker
and put in a orange globe.
it was a pain in the a** but it was worth it.
i was considering taking out the red lens but not to sure how it would look..(ricer)????

has anyone taken out the red lens aswell if so do you have any pics..

hmmm, would look a bit plain if you removed the red part as well. Someone modded my RH tailight for me, so im replacing both at once and doing what you did to them at the same time

I'm looking at doing this also. How hard was it to pull the taillight apart?
Cominthru did the red and orange part and it looked good, would look nice on a dark car like mine i reckon.

nice work. quick question, how did it finish up around the edges? mine looks dodgey up close cos i cut them open with a dremal, not sure what other poeple used

how did you get yours open?

you should get a fairmont boot garnish an make the look flow from side to side, looks good on the fairmont :D well i think so anyway

cominthru did the whole light mod and it looks not bad at all,

he is on here so do a search of his gallery.

tried this mod on a set of EA lights using the EB indicator area didnt turn out well but then again i butchered it up real bad.
