Custom tails for the fifth gen... LOLOLOLOLOL thats a good one!! :lolhittin

I've only ever seen 1 kind of aftermarket tails for the fifth gen... I think it was Stormy that has them, not sure though.

But if you are going to be doing some work on your own, you could probably fabricate some up pretty easy. Good luck!!

You need to do this (http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30924)

Because the 90/91 tails are very ugly.

Only the coupes, not the hatches, I like the hatch tail lights a lot

Meh, I dont agree with that, I think the 90-91 tails on the hatch are cleaner looking

you mean to say the 92-93's arent blocky? lol these are rounder overall than the 92-93's. If you see them in person they look a lot better

By blocky, I mean that they use squares... but they look way better than what the coupe got for those years... Almost wish I did have the hatch, just because of that, and more usable trunk space...

they did use squares but so did the 92-93's, they just had them shapped differently. When these tail lights light up though they look awesome, I can get a pic if you want to see. I love these tail lights though, they are nice and bright so if anyone rear ends me there is no excuse

i know that smoking your tails is an option but that is such a commonly used thing around here with everyones tails. i mean i think they look pretty tight on the celica but i was just wondering if there are any other options out there besides smoking them?

Well, if you can come across a pair of 92-93 tails, they will fit on a 90-91. My tail light on my '90 was broken in a parking lot, and I found a set of 92/93's in a junkyard for $30. I bought them, and after I took off the old lights I noticed that the mounts were different, but the mounts on both were held in with phillips screws. Swapped the brackets, and the tails fit just fine.
That's one option for tails on a 90-91 coupe.
I've also thought about taping the Toyota logo over parts of the tail lights, and then painting the rest of the light to match the color of the car. Never did it, but I've tried to picture what it would look like.
