G5 LED Tail Lights?

I just made a set of custom LED tail lights for a buddy's 4-door Cobalt. I believe there are no aftermarket LED tails available for the G5 at all, right? Anyone here that would be interested if I were to take a shot at making some?

Update to this project:
I got a hold of two G5 coupe tail lights and managed to take one of them apart without completely destroying the lens (one out of two ain't bad ;-/ )
This is what it will look like with the K2 LED ring installed. I plan to spray paint the inside of the entire fixture black, so I also added a LED side marker, like the Cobalt sedan has (to make sure the lights are still visible from the side).
I tinted the lens with some smoked vinyl. What do y'all think?
