Black fox body GT's

I am about to be replacing my headlights and tail light lenses. My cheese graters are cracked and not looking to go through the hassle to get new lenses painted so i wanna go with lx tail light lenses but they have been beaten to death,i hate euro lights but i been thinking about svo lenses,cobra lenses,etc.. im not sure so post your pics of tail lights and headlights on black gt fox bodies so i can figure out what im gonna do.

You not like mine cause they are kinda Euro, but not full blown. I do have pics when I had lxs on there.

And I have the economy head lights from 50resto with clear side markers.

These are mine. Stock headlights. Clear corners. I got basic lx's in the back. I like the my cars to look clean rather then flashy

Go SVO/Cobra tails.. LX look 'Ok' too IMO.. Really like the Cobras, especially if you do the Cobra spoiler.

What size rims are on your ride? They look like my 18"saleens.. Just had a quick question. What size tires to you have on the rear? Did you have to run a spacer with them?

Your welcome. A lot of people aren't really into those tail. But I do like them. They were gifted to me in like New condition. They aren't as flashy as most Euro style and I think they look good on black. The lxs are nice to.

dream, I have an idea for your tail lights that I think can be done fairly easy and I think you might like it too. ( New pain meds! So be forewarned!)
When I get the picture shopped I'll post it either here or in your "What it takes" thread.

All right, but try not to laugh too hard.


I think if you used some decal vinyl and cut out some Running Pony's over each tail light, then install a tail light sequencer that activates with the turn signals, this would look pretty cool. (Got lazy and only did one side.)

hmmm.. the only thing i could think of while waiting is... what the heck is he thinking of. lol. but that is actually a good idea. just by looking at the pic you made gave me several more ideas.

like maybe 3 different ponies so when they sequence it looks as if they are running. kinda like the old paper notepads when you draw a bunch of consecutive drawings and flip through them so it looks as if the object would be moving.

or use stickers for masking and actually tint them. then peel the stickers so it leaves the stickered area untinted.

but first things first i need to get the turn signal working. i have been lazy lately. but i am gonna think this over and save the pic. in a few months after i get her track worthy and tested, i think i may tinker with some of these ideas. i would want to try something removable to make sure it looks good. so if i dont like it i could take it off.

thanx trojan
