Ebay Prelude Tail lights

Hi,

I've been looking for some new tail lights lately, I've found one for a very good price and luckily the guy was living in the same town as me. So today, I decide to pass by and take a look. They seemed really cheaped and a bit scratched and one of the lens fell out, lol. Anyways, he told me he could get me an another one right away but I told him I'll come back, later ( which I doubt). Anyways, I was wondering if there were some good tail lights I could get on ebay without having to worry really.

Thanks

PS: It was those one, http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

So, Altezzas should have the brand listed on the tail light itself?

Yeah... Stay away from Altezza's. Although... Rory managed to pull em' off extremely well.

I found both stock tail lights on E-Bay in a matter of about 10 seconds... They're on there if you want them.

Re: Ebay Prelude Tail lights

you could prolly wet sand them then use some mgweivers or mcguyvers or muguirs whatever...they have a headlight restorer thing where you can buff em and make them look like new. So wet sand + that stuff and they'll look like new. Prolly only cost you $20 tops and a couple minutes of your time.

Re: Ebay Prelude Tail lights

Unfortunately, the one on the driver's side is kind of broken a bit in the bottom left =/. The passenger's side could be sand but I would have to find a new one for the driver's side. How about those Euro tail lights, are they that bad too?

Re: Ebay Prelude Tail lights

Can you take a pic. of those? I'm just curious, lol

Nvm, I just saw them in your profile. Off topic question but you drive your Prelude in winter too?

Re: Ebay Prelude Tail lights

Stay away from the clear tail lights, they just screem rice. You could however pull off black altezza's since your lude is black. You seem rather keen on them, in which case you shouldn't hold out. Once you have them on for a while you will begin to dislike their look. I have had the clear ones (got them for $30 with clear indicators; was going to spray them with a clear red tint) and still have the black ones. I will never drive with the clear ones but I dont mind the black ones as much. Stock is a fair bit cleaner though!
