Nah just get fiberglass filler and some good sandpaper. When your spreading it over the holes get it as smooth as possible. Sand around the holes also then start with like a 150 and work up to a 500 til smooth then get some touch up paint or even get a spray bomb can. Primer first then scuff it with a scrub pad.

Idk what brand they are cause I found them cheap on eBay. A shop ordered the wrong thing for a customers car and they were wrong. They couldn't return it so they auctioned them.

Headlights!
Those are my favorite style tail lights for the SN's too. I sprayed the Niteshades paint on my rear 1/4 windows in my 86 to black them out.
Then one day I had a trouble light inside the car and found out that it's actually a dark red.

Yeah I don't like the other style. I got a awesome deal on the headlights. The halos kinda confused me at first with the same color wires coming out of them but I figured it out. So it's all good now for the fun of adjusting

Re: New headlights and smoked taillights

If you want some bright halogens for those. I used Sylvania Silver Star zXe bulbs. The highbeams, I used some cheap Chinese hi watt blue bulbs that were pretty bright but hot.

I'll look into that. I like what I got for now but I do believe I want to change them all to a blue tint bulb

Wingless is better. Do you even know what those waste of plastic junk is used for? Speeds over 160mph is what I heard. It's so much more freedom without a wing just an additional weight. Boring

You sprayed your quarter windows? I thought of that once. Got a picture?

It's coming slowly but surely. Got a 3 inch cowl hood coming for 50 bucks cause it has a crack in it. Nothing a little fiberglass won't fix

Sorry no pics and the garage is too small to allow me to get a side shot.
They are 87' model 1/4 windows and they just look black until you get a light behind them. Then they are a really dark red.

I got factory dark tinted quarter glass for my 86. It's the 87 and up full glass instead of the louvered style like the 86 and back had. Just haven't put them in yet

I ended up buying a whole car (87' with the engine burned up) just for the 1/4 windows.
Paid $150, used the 1/4 windows, sold the cowl panel for $150, sold the front suspension for $150 and the rearend and suspension for $200. Cleared a $350 profit and got what I wanted.

Indeed it is. I just wish all of my efforts worked out that way.


If I remember correctly the change out is a bit of a PITA.
Have some extra sealer ready for the bottom of the 87 glass and it seems like I had to do something with the fasteners at the rear. I'll run outside in a while and see if I can see it to remember what I had to do.


I do like the look much better than the 86 style.
