Default Fresh Ideas for 08+ taillight

well, not sure if its considered fresh... but i tried. i bought some reverse/turn signal cutout finals and made this. its in the designing process, when i get the final ideas, then i'll mask it off and get it painted cause the vinyl was a PITA to put on. Let me know what you guys think :]

Normal cutout:


Then we go into this:




I'm changing the signal bulbs to red bulbs soon... and sorry for the rappy pix... its under raining condition and crappy cell pix

Paint/replace that chrome bit before you spend any more time/effort on the lights.

From someone who painted the tail lights on my '09 when I had it, I have to say that I don't really like your tweaked version. Just my 2 cents.

What if you took out the entire lower portion of the hatch part of the light? I think that might look better...
