wow... as I write this, my freshly-painted taillights are drying on my garage floor. All I can say is that I can't wait to get them on the car. I'm REALLY happy at how they turned out (at least on the floor there).

I kinda did them up like a Toyota Supra.

here's a pic of them when I masked off the shapes earlier today.

Yeah, those are my toes at the bottom of the pic

I'll post pics of them on the car as soon as it's done (prolly in an hour or two)

Hey looks Good, I am planning the same kinda design, but with all oval shapes. I am getting clear covers custom made (since they dont make them stock).
I had my tails painted once, but the local cops gave me a hard time with them, so I had to go to the junk yard, and buy new ones, this is when I put the 91's tail lights on it,

post pics when your done

one more thing, how do you post pics in you message

whee! one more coat of the clear stuff, then they're going on the car.

post pics by uploading them to your account in the registry section, then using the HTML "IMG" tag to source them to your pic... bah, i'm bad at explaining. here's an example

say YOU had a pic called sweetZ.jpg. go to the registry, upload it. then, in a message, put the following in a set of triangular brackets:
img src="http://www.v6z24.com/users/jacksz24/sweetZ.jpg"

--edit--

hey, you have a webpage, you know this crap!
speaking of your webpage, please oh PLEASE get rid of that horrid midi music!

you don't have to use a registry image, either. you can source ANY pic, hosted anywhere except geocities and a lot of those free hosting servers

hehe, you can see my head sticking up in the second pic as I hit my brakes

I think it'll probably look better once I shave the badges

If you're going to do any shaving, I suggest you leave the Pontiac emblem. The colors go well, and it breaks up the center some so it doesn't look *too* plain. Just a suggestion.

I'm going to (I think) replace the emblems with something different.

I was thinking about a black and white superman emblem

I haven't really decided yet.

I was going to paint my tailights but I have a '90 Z and the spaces are very small and I can't make any designs or anything on that small a space. Any ideas? I was thinking of finding tails from a newer Z, will those fit? Also will Sunbird tails fit on my car too? Thanks.

Thanks for all the comments.
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out

--edit--

you sure about that interchangeable tails thing, moon? the sunbird lights don't have the license plate mount attached like the cavs do.
