idea for some taile tights

this is what i was thinking..get a set of ALTEZZA lights tack them apart get a piece of pvc pip the size of the lens and cut it to the length of the inside of the lights then paint the pvc and the clear out side lens w/e colorer you want all but wear the inside of the pvc is so you can see the lights kinda like French lights. what ya think?

ok i read it and this sound relay confusing hope this helps


I=out side clear lens
.=pvc
c=cent of the pvc
1=light lens

-----------------------
I.............................1
Icccccccccccccccccc1
Icccccccccccccccccc1
Icccccccccccccccccc1
I.............................1

So let me get this straight.. you want like 3 tubes inside your tail lights? is that the idea?

like in day time id look at your tails and they'd be red with 3 clear circles, and those circles are pvc pipe with the light at the other end of it.. and at night only those three circles would light up...
________
|_O_O_O_\ <--tail light
that kind of idea if you were looking at them.. the O's are clear everything else is painted?

I agree that stock looks the best but I do like your idea and I think you should go for it. Personally the only thing I want to do is take out the orange cube for the turn signals, I hate them and have no idea how to get them out, easily anyways.

you can cut the back of the taillight out around where the bulb goes in and take that orange piece out, then just hot glue the back piece back on, it looks really good and is really easy.

if you want rings in your taillights you can always get them custom fitted with led's and get rings for your taillight/brake light part, it would cost around 300 bucks
