Circular tail light conversion

Does anyone have a solid idea what is the cost (parts and labor) to do the tail light conversion on the V8 Esprit --- excluding the paintwork? Are all the parts / kits still available in the market?

Check with Claudius, last I heard they had the panel and can convert the wiring harness to the round lights. The panel was $1,400 plus the lights plus the wiring harness conversion. The Toyota lights can be sold. They can be worth as much as $150 each.

Superdavelotus from LEF has those at a cheaper price. He's located in UK though. - Rear Round Panel & Light Kit (LED)

Decisions, decisions...

Stay with the incandescent round bulbs (as the factory used in the last years) or go with the LED lamps used by the latest Elise?
