I have bought clear front blinkers and a pair of au side repeaters they are on there way buy mail, so would a pair of Altezza clear tail lights be the go would they look good on my car as its stark white a nice bright white not long ago resprayed.

Also would it look good if i get the rear garnish color coded or would that be too much?

you can see what my car looks like in my gallery.

If you go clear repeaters and fronts, then the rears would probably look out of place. But then again, it might not.

Maybe some pictures of peoples cars with altezzas could help. I wouldn't mind doing it to mine eventually.

I've seen people colour code the boot garnish and it's looked really good.

Here is an EB with a painted/filled in garnish.

I like it a lot.

Theres lights on ebay that still have the red strip in the middle, which has the reflectors in it, which makes them legal. Plus I think they look better than std altezzas.

And that garnish is hot.

See mate, I said the other day, if you put the altezzas in and paint the garnish white, I think it will work.

Yeah the clear lights look retarded, especially if you don't colour code the garnish (VT Commodores come to mind here). Nothing wrong with the EB rear end.. maybe put the money towards getting rid of the EA bonnet? lol

haha i personally prefer the EA's better interior colours, better side mirrors, better rear lights, nice little rear quarter detail, and if u can pull off a decent project they are bloody brilliant

My opinion anyway, i know people will think otherwise
