Hey guys, do any of you know any company that does custom tail light manufacturing because obvisouly many of you know that 90-93 Celicas its impossible to get any tail lights and i dont even think they make any for them. If any body has any info please.

It would most likely be anybody that does one off vacuum forming that could help you out. Try googling companies that do vacuum forming and see what you can find.

Trying to be more of a ST20x style light. It doesn't look to bad, if only it was more clear like the ST20x.

Ither they are custom made or if there what I'm thinking... They are something like 500$ or more a set from some uber euro company. There was a link posted a Long time ago to the sight that made them. Looked like they just cleared out the turns.

Looks like someone used flourescent light fixture covers. Used to be a how to on it somewhere a long time ago. They always look like poo to me.

i made my own if it helps,

in the light the smoked part is like a light gray and i painted my center piece leaving the celica lettering silver,

i was tyring to go for stealthy but understated

took about a day and cost 40 bux in materials

Meh I don't think the lexan/flourescent light cover tails look that bad. I'd wan't to see them on a celica first though. There not as bad as a lot of civics I have seen who just cover it with transparent non textured acrylic so you see all of the nasty internals lol

I could see sporting these. If the car was dark colored. I would like to see the installed though, the corner is interesting, I think that started it's life as a USDM corner, not a Vented.

I do no think that tail lights should be hacked up and modified. If you can't do it factory perfect, don't fucking touch them. If you have them modified to the point where they are nonvisible or don't even work, and you get rear ended, it is your own fault.

This goes for frenched, painted, conversions ect...

I have tinted mine. They are perfectly visible with little loss in brightness in daytime, and no loss at night. It cost me $5 and I think it was the best exterior mod I have done besides wheels.

Mudhoney is next.

Now i need to get some jdm vents for a coupe, and get on this. Would be easy to do.
