13 taillights for 10-12!!!!! OMG!!!!

Found this on another forum. It's interesting and would be cheap to do. I'm not crazy about it but thought I'd share. I believe that's just plasti-dip. He was going to do vinyl just wanted to see how it'd look before.

Oh sorry for the tease!! Hahahaha!

Not a shabby idea....just tape around the headlights and spray 2-3 coats. Up close you would notice the difference, but not far away obviously (except the bumper). Wish the darn taillights weren't so expensive.

The reason I hated the '10-12 rear is because of the white divider in the taillights. Yeah, it has the halo effect of the '13s, but it still has the ugly reverse light mucking things up.

I love the 10-12 headlights must better than the 05-09 ones and I'm not crazy on the 13s unless the car is black, gray or red

Something about the the classic mustang tri-segmented light being divided just didn't jive with me. I like the '10-12 GT fronts a lot, wouldn't mind that in place of my '13 front end. However, stock for stock on the V6, I like the 13's since they share everything with the GTs style wise (minus the grill).

They look best tinted black if anything. The white just doesn't flow. They should have just put reverse lamps in the rear bumper or something.

The 10-12 tails do look best black, but I like the reverse lights dividing them. Particularly at night. I've got the raxioms aero tails and they look better but I think the stockers look better at night when lit. I want to tint the reverse lights on my raxioms and see how they look though and get the rest of it darker as well. And sanguin, I too like the 10-12 fronts and the rest of the body at that over the 13. Only thing I like on the 13's is the optional recaros and the tails but I can live without. If they make a true 13 taillight kit for the 10-12, I most likely will get them.

Great Idea. Thanks for posting. I plasti-dipped my rear badge and love the look.
