Not much to be honest. I hit it with prepaint liquid a couple of times to make sure all the grease and dirt was removed, then painted.

I love the amber in the factory lights...can't figure out why you guys don't like it...[snip]
I like the factory amber too, but more for safety reasons (more visible to people behind me when changing lanes).

I do agree however with MRDANGERUS that from an asthetic point of view, the amber is not as strong as all-red lenses.

And I agree...the fewer the number of colors, the more congruous the rear end.

Custom or factory stock...I love it all though :)

Ahhh, but what if it's one of those "do nothing congruous" that people complain about?

And Roy, I've been a proponent of the "wingless look" for more than 15 years... :up:

As a general rule, I think if the guys that work at Pep Boys are doing it to their cars you shouldn't do it to your exotic.
On the mod it vs keep it original scale I'm pretty close the end on the original side, but I like to read mod threads. Sometimes some even tempt me - led's in the headliner. Ok, not that. But karmavore's general rule always jumps in waving a red flag. Words to live by for me.

The Toyota E86 taillights don't seem to be 100% bolt on? What about the upper 'tab' on the Lotus Toyota taillights? The Toyota E86 taillights don't have that.

You're right, but there are several versions of AE86 lights (on eBay), some with and some without the tab. I have eliminated the OE plinth (cheap warped vac-formed part) and fabricated the middle piece to fill up the gap.

Original lights are too "massive" and too tall, that's why I went for the "red stripe" Kouki.
