99 Cobra Tail lights

So I went to get my car inspected the other day and I failed because I have smoked tail lights. Apparently the law has changed and they said I failed because your lights have to be visible from 1,000 feet. You can see my lights from farther away but there's no test for it. So I searched around, called a bunch of places and the oem tail lights for 99 Cobra are discontinued. So if I get the tail lights for another 99 model why won't they work? I was thinking of getting them and just drilling a hole for the extra bulb the 99 Cobra has but one of the companies I talked to said they wiring harness for the Cobra wont match up. Any help is appreciated.

If u used a spray to tint them just take a pocket knife and use that to chip the paint off I tinted my headlights black and made it look like shutter shades just be extremely careful and use a head light buffer to remove the small scratches

Find a local car show like an "underground racing" and ask around for who inspects their cars. get some numbers and call em up. A few weeks ago I met a guy who does inspections and his friends also do them. If not, maybe hit a junk yard but idk what to tell ya other than keep calling shops and hope for a mustang fan!

Re: 99 Cobra Tail lights

Yes they are different. I just found some at the Prestige Mustang, just waiting for answer from them. Thanks for all the help.

Re: 99 Cobra Tail lights

It's more than the yellow, there's more bulbs in the 99 Cobra. I tried to use my buddy's GT tail lights, they fit but wiring and bulbs don't match up.

Why not just leave some bulbs out?

That's what I am probably going to do as long as there is a brake light, turn signal, and reverse light to pass inspection.

I don't think you need a 3rd brake light to pass inspection. Atleast in TX you dont

Well just ordered tail lights from American Muscle. I talked to them and they also said they will fit but the wiring harness will not match up. Looks like I will just have to rig it up.

Lol, don't worry about that. The smoked tail lights will go back on. I will just have to swap them every year.
