Tired of waiting,looking,posting,and scouring junk yards, for tail light covers. I noticed some write ups in naioahq, but, opinion wise has anyone here done both or found one to be easier then the other? I have the cappuccino frost metallic color so I'm not sure if that rules vinyl out.

Thanks...

buy a another set of tail lights, or get some from the junk yard and paint them! they can turn out great looking if you take your time and do it right!

I'm confused as to exactly what you have and what you want...your profile shows an Ivory car w/red tails,I believe.

Are you saying you have Cap Frost and want Ivory,or your car is now Cap Frost and want Cap Frost tails?

I just bought a set of black tails for my '03 Cap Frost Imp/tails....may very well decide to part w/the body color set,if that's what you're looking for.

I've tried eBay for farrrrrr to long...

And when I first got my car I thought it was ivory and never updated it to cap frost. Do you have the actual covers or just tail lights painted cap frost. PM me if you're looking to sell...

The tail covers are on my 01 which is Jasper Green, and yes they're the real deal OEM tail covers. Sorry but they're not for sale.

corners are covers, the link for the center is the light (read description)

I've seen the corners for quite sometime, no point in paying that much for just the corners IMO.

was about $1K from the dealer for the 3 piece set, but you're right, they are a bit high for aftermarket and then you'd be missing the middle section.
