**** that's good to know before I start tearing them apart. She definitely hates the chrome colored tails with a passion. This is probably wrong thread but are there any aftermarket tails that either come in black or (ideally) are easily paintable that would match a painted set of the headlamps? Money isn't an issue, nor is finish because I haven't painted anything else on the car yet so I can be decently flexible on that. Sorry if this is really dumb but I'm a total newbie to Subarus so I don't even really know what to search because I don't know what parts would be compatible or not....
Or should I just buy a used set of stock tails, grow a pair, and chop them up? I build aquariums all the time so making the epoxy or silicone seal up won't be too hard for me, I'm just worried about messing up when I cut them open.....
