You got rid of the tail light covers?! Are you selling them if you did get rid of them?

I like the change, I was always a fan of the tail light covers, actually saw a Silver LSS like yours yesterday. I have the red tails on my 02 and I hate the look, was either wanting to swap out to the newer black tails, or tint them. but if I came around a semi-cheap set of tail like covers i'd get those and paint them the color of my car.

Overall, I like what you did there Very Happy

I was kinda surprised as nobody indicated any interest in the black tails that were available recently in the parts section...especially with the center section being brand new. After touching base with a couple regulars about that,it seems most members here have pretty much done the mods they wanted...I was still surprised considering the price offered. I'm certainly glad now that there was no interest,as that is where I obtained them. Smile

Being fairly new to the Imp world/forum...I still am a lil' confused as to the difference between the "covers" and actual "taillights"...is there a difference? I don't see how the "covers" would work over a set of reds/blacks as they sit. Are the terms used interchangeably or am I just completely missing something?

Thanx

The body color tail may look "cleaner" to some...but,I think the blacks look "clean & mean" at the same time. For me,the body color allows your eyes to be drawn straight to the lights themselves,hence,they "stick out" a lil' much. IMHO

Now I need to spend the money where it counts,and leave everyone else picking on/remembering my tails! Rolling Eyes

Thanx

The covers are double sided taped on.

Can the badge be removed off the black set? Is there the indentation behind it?

badge can be removed, there is a mold mark behind it from when they made the taillights. The covers have an indention for the emblem to fit into.

Any recommendations on a bowtie emblem,perhaps,to cover the mold markings?

...or any similar approach?

Thanx
