New to the Impala game, and it seems I am late to the party. I have seen cars with the taillights covered in body color around the areas that produce light.

I also can't seem to find these for purchase. Any suggestions?

They were available on certain models

02-05 LS "Sport" (with sport appearance package)
04-05 SS

They were available through the dealerships but were close to $1000 for the set. Dont think they sell them anymore, the last of that style is 12 years old now.

They pop up on ebay from time to time, so keep checking there

2 other options, you can have them vinyl wrapped or have them painted.

I've found them recently on Ebay and a few of those parts warehouse websites.
They are extremely overpriced now b/c of lack of stock..

I want to say I priced the whole set at almost $600 a few weeks ago..

I'd do what Pitch said and vinyl wrap them... That's my plan now.

I am still in contact with the guy that used to make the vinyl wraps if interested, let me know.

Here's the original write up. I designed this kit back in the day and my 02 LS was the prototype.

Seen a few at the local U-Pick on an Impala LSX. Just the regular price of any tail lamp. To me, it wasn't worth the $50 for the whole set. GARY

The LSX was a whole different animal. Different center panel and required a special spoiler to be used with it.

The spoiler is worth a pretty penny (or used to be) So was the grille

I actually had the LSX grill in my hand at the U-Pick. It was on a real LSX car, & I couldn't believe the lack of quality on it. It was VERY CHEAPLY made. It was in new condition, but wasn't even worth the $10 they wanted. I went on E-Bay, & found a similar looking grille for $45, & the quality was perfect. I found a red bow tie off a Cavalier that resembled the one on the LSX grille. I just couldn't believe how poorly made it was. It had no GM markings on it, so I'm sure the people who upgraded the car for Chevrolet [SLP Engineering] got the grilles from a non OEM source. GARY
