Tail light customization needed?

So I know about the DIY Ruby tail lights mod for 4th gens, and I think they look amazing. I was considering buying the materials to do the mod and came across something interesting.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/92-94...spagenameZWDVW

I LOVE the LED look on tail lights, but with the black backing the ruby effect from the DIY just wont look right...

So heres the question. Anyone know if there is a chrome version of these lights? If not, I'm thinkin of taking on a custom paint job of my own, and converting the black to chrome, THEN doin the ruby reds. With the LED brake lights, it should look immaculate.

Solutions? questions? comments? Lets here um.

You could use your stock tail light lenses and cover up the ****tyness of the lights them self and I don't know if they make a chrome set of the led tail lights on eaby. I did make my own custom led tails that I'll sell you for a hefty price.
