You're right, actually. I read somewhere, a long time ago, that Lexus/Toyota had a bit of an issue with bringing in one of the RX models because of the (all) clear tail lights, so they just threw some red reflectors on the rear bumper so it would be up to spec.

Also, AtlasLS400, here's a little inspiration for that extra reflector you may, or may not, need.



Nobody ever said they can't light up

I'll check into it... if it becomes an issue, I'll put a reflector in the third brake light

Thanks man... I was a little concerned if those lights would be too much. But they really compliment everything else.

Yeah, I'm with him lol.

It's surprising how contemporary it looks in comparison with the Lincoln in the background. FL is starting to drop into the 40s now, so not quite snowing just yet
