Not a huge or groundbreaking project, but i still think it is different, since i have not seen anyone do this.

Wanted a new, different, but not ricey look for the tail lights.

I had 88-89 tails on my 91 Si, then i picked up some ,new, all clear tails.
The tails are like the 90/91 style, with the trim like border around the light.
I masked off the appropriate area and lightly painted away. I also cleared the lights, to give them a glossy look.
Bought the right color bulbs and there you have it, 90/91 style Red/Clear tails.
Suprisingly, these fit great, just like OEM and do not leak!
The paint and clear coat i used was made by Testors. The paint is Candy Apple Red transparent paint.





I don't sport these anymore. I went back to the 88/89 OEM tails, i just like the overall look of them better,

After I did them, I didn't really like them, so I sold them.
They looked good at night and had the OEM lens pattern which is why I liked them. But in the daylight, I didn't like the look of them.
Maybe if they had a dark border around them or a better center garnish, they would have looked better, ahh well.
