Custom Sedan LED Tail Lights

I have heard many sedan owners complain that there aren't any good looking aftermarket LED tail lights available for the sedan.
I recently made this set for member in my local Cobalt club.

I used the LED ring from a set of K2 coupe LED lights, used LED bulbs for the side markers, a flashing center bulb for the brake lights & blinkers, and a bright CREE bulb for the reverse lights. I also used the BuyHID's LED conversion for the 3rd brake light and tinted all three fixtures with a smoked vinyl.

What do you guys think?

I will post some nighttime pictures later this week.

And yes, I know the 3rd brake light is crooked, we're going to fix that

I do like the clear smoked lenses on the ICPW lights but not the internals. To each their own

I really dig these. There's something really clean and sharp about LED rings on these sedans.
