    The sedan tail lights won't fight because the inner piece (trunk piece) of the light is a slightly different shape than the coupe's. As far as I know nobody makes aftermarket tail lights for the coupe. What you can do is swap a sedan trunk onto your car, and then you'll be able to use aftermarket tail lights made for the sedan.

    Yep, that's correct. If you don't want to go through the hassle of finding and purchasing a whole new trunk lid though, you could try tinting your stock tail lights with that "Nite Shades" spray paint that they sell in parts stores, maybe make them half red, half black, or something like that.

    Just an idea...I'm not sure what look you're going for with the tail lights, like altezzas, or half red / half white, or what?

    Aftermarket though? That's what he's looking for. Aftermarket tails for the coupe are really hard to find, at least for the 92-93. I'm not sure about the 90-91. Usually, if people want to put aftermarket tails on there 92-93 they swap to a sedan trunk lid.

    Nope, they're not all the same. Just like they do with most of their vehicles, Honda gave the 4th-gen Accord a face lift halfway through it's life. They updated the rear end of both the coupe and the sedan in 92. In 90-91 both the coupe and sedan used the same tail lights; in 92-93 they use different tail light designs. They do make aftermarket tails for the sedan, but as far as I know no one makes them for the coupe.

    oh. i didn't know that. you learn something new every day, i guess.

    i did change the trunk on mine though. don't know what it came from because it came from a junkyard and i obviously didn't know they were different at the time, but the aftermarkets fit, so i guess it came from a 90/91.
