Well i was asked to do a how to about my tails... so here it goes...for warning i dont have pics for all steps.
first off i removed the red lens from my stock G5 tail lights by actually boiling them in water to soften up the adhesive. (sorry dont have a pic for this step)
i then painted the inside housing of the lights black and dremmel'd out the center of the lights to look like this:

while the paint was drying i had a stock set of cobalt tails that i tinted with VHT nightshade

then all there was to do was properly fit it.. i needed to ad a screw to the outer tip of the light housing to hold it tight. At the end the lights should turn out like this:

i decided to this mod on my car because there arnt any after market tails for the coupe G5, i like the look, and nobody else has anything like these.. but now if you want you can have them to lol

SWEET!

It's like a headlight retrofit for your tails. I was going to just have the tails professionally done with some basic black/clear mixture like I did on my GTP tint wise...but this looks PRETTY damn nice instead.

looks good.

a clear lens to go over everything would touch it up a little bit better. as it kinda looks obv you pulled the lens off
