Scott, I finally found some 97+ tails at the junk yard and will try a different variation of what you've done. Awesome work again.

What I've got to work with

I think about the only way to make that even remotely look "right" might be to candy red transparent paint the rest of that front lense from the inside, EXCEPT for a rounded off rectangle where the reverse light could shine through clear. As it sits that just looks... Wrong-- know what I mean? Too much stuff going on, and conflicting lines/angles.

Stupid me. I wish I had found this thread before I started my own job. Well, you live and learn. This is bookmarked.

@ScottURnot - I don't wanna high jack your thread, but I know you, @UZ-TT was doing some tail development and I can't find that thread.

I'm going with the ultimate clear lens. 97+ has those funky lines that the 95s has (but less) in the clear section.

95-96 - Just there for a test I dead. Clear lens over top leaving the tails: clear on the top 30%, and a clearER
Reverse, red, amber, red on the bottom

97-00 - Blacked out and ready for a clear lens.

eBay - Using for a pure clear lens.

95-96: these will be sued to extend into the groove where the OEM tails seal. The ebay ones are a lot slimmer than I thought.
