Here's a thought... should I paint the top of the taillights white to match the paint lines?

rhkcommander959 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Or with some light enginuity you could get a new set like mine and flip them. Looking good so far!

a set like these, but alot cheaper elsewhere this is just for a picture reference... just flip them over so the turn signal sits at the top in the whit spot, and brake sits at bottom. Then you wouldn't have funny paint lines

I don't like the clear taillights. I would like a new set of stock style lights for it as these are fading and oxidized.
Just toying with the idea of painting the top part white to match the body line. Might as well experiment on these old ones first, right?

Planning on new headlights and clear markers in the future though.

Paint looks great Evan!

I like the idea of painting the top of the lights white, go for it! But then I've always been cheap.............

I think I'll photo-shop it and see how it looks. Looking at the pictures again I doesn't look bad. Just a idea I had.

I'm cheap too.

Or maybe I can flip them like RHKcommander said. Put the backup light on top.
