    Hey I am looking for some cool tailights for a 92-95 civic hb, I dont' like regular alteeza's at all and I am not really into stock. I am wondering if anyone has any cool tail lights, like I have seen some real cool black and clear ones (only once) but I want unique and under $100 shipped if possible. Thanks for your time.

    Testor's brand Candy Apple Red transparent is the best to use for this.

    hey I need tail lights, my gay alteeza's see pics, are busted out. I was thinking maybe jdm but everywhere I find em they want like 150+ so I am like f*** that. I saw some clears with half of the black cover on top and it looked real good, but I am probably painting my car champion white so I don't want to get all red ones( a girl at our school has emon a champion white car at my school). Please someone find me tight tail lights.

    We know they make em. The whole deal between Mike and Nick was started b/c i said factory red/whites on a 5th gen, but they aren't. I asked today and some kid before him put them on it.

    :) Go red/whites. You can make your own and they look good if done right.

    I have yet to hear a taillight, besides JDM that fits properly. Someone else might, but not I. Well, i did my eclipses before i sold it. I got a heated them up and peeled the paint off, then i got some Testor's brand Candy Apple Red transparent paint and painted red dots. It looked like tezzas', but with the fit of OEM and i looked decent on the car.

    I like clear myself, just need to find someone who makes good quality ones.

    It just takes time and patience to make your own. if you buy from Ebay, ask the exact brand they are and then ask around b/c if they suck, you brake lights will have water in them.
