tail light question (altezza)

Well somebody smashed up one of my taillights so i bought a set of smoked altezas... now im going to draw a cheesy ascii diagram

<000 l==l 000> (that is the rear view of my car if you didn't realize it from my beautiful artwork.)

so the thing is only the light closest to the outside lights up the one in bold here 000>

that one lights up as both running light and brake light. the one closest to the inside 000> lights up as reverse light only. i feel like this isn't how it should work. if anybody has or knows where pictures of this set up are so i can see what its supposed to look like, please direct me to them.

p.s. in hindsight i think i hate altezzas on preludes. i got em cause they were smoked and i like the darker look on a black lude... but just the shape of em doesn't seem to work for me like the stock lights... so i'll probably buy a pair of OEM's sometime again... 100 bucks down the drain haha.

Re: tail light question (altezza)

The back up light should be a 1/2 red 1/2 clear the center should be on with your parking and head lights and the one on the outside should be the turns. I think never had them. With the way you have it now with you light on and the turns on does it stay light and get brighter or just goes on and of. If you don't like them and do get a OE set take them apart and see if ya can't mod them in a way you look i have seen very few but have seem them that looked good with a bit of work.
