I'm guessing he would like to see a night time shot with your lights on?...Cause that's what I'd like to see as well.

I officially name this tail-light baller mod. This requires 95-96 plus 97+ tail light. You looking like $400-500 already to have one set of tail-lights. It looks amazing tho! I know ScottUrNot got a money tree growing

Been toying with modding up the 97 inside lens for someone to drop in, I have some ideas.

Make plastic clear copies molded of the inner tail lenses (95-96, and 97-00 styles) spray half red, start business- sell sell sell
Though there probably isn't much of a market so scratch that plan
