2SSRS and Rockin the BlueSS, I'm glad someone is trying to get a real afterburner tailight going. I will follow your progress and consider me one of your first customers if you decide to sell it.

In hindsight, GM really did leave out many of the popular effects on the production model compared to the concept. If people were spending $40K on their car and wanted all of these effects, GM should have offered just about all of the more popular options like "afterburner tail lamps," for a few hundred more. I'd even pay a few thousand more just to make sure I wasn't buying a Camaro that lost some excitement in the transition from concept to production vehicle. GM dropped the ball with this. The gas tank placement I could care less about, but why not finish the damn car with the best tail lamps? Maybe if they focused more on this, they would have taken more care in better protecting the lamps. So many people complaining of water filling the housing. I want a Camaro, not a Honda CRX hatchback. Every time I've seen one of these cars their tail lamps and trunk plastic molding are like half filled with water. LOL!

Although those afterburner tailights look awesome, I believe the answer as to why they're not part of the production model would be cost! After all, price the replacement cost of just one front Halo light! Also having a company gear up to make enough of them for 100k plus cars a year (I believe GM had run into this issue with the Halo's earlier this year) and add the fact what another member said... the concept lights are pretty deep and would take up trunck space. Maybe this could end up being part of the Z28 package.... who knows but I would like to see GM put out a version of them for add on's!

Everyone, please keep this topic on-topic --> discussing how the afterburner tail lights can be achieved (not why the production lights don't come like this).

Thank you.

It's been forever since I've posted on here, but why don't we just ask them to do it like we've done everything else? The blue for SS for instance.

This is awesome. If you can make the finished product have the right afterburner glow then you gain instant hero status.

"The car is pretty wide and the taillights are out at the corners, but they're not as deep as they were on the concept car, a decision driven primarily by sheetmetal and trunk space. On the concept you can make those cans two-feet deep but someone who owns the car doesn't want that."
Don't know who wrote that, but it's wrong. (Typical coming from JAlopyNick)It's an optical illusion, they're not deep.

Shove a flame thro..... Nevermind

I think the "Light behind a half-moon" idea is headed in the right direction, but tail light lenses are hundreds of little lenses. The production car lense was changed, so you'll never get it exact unless you do something with it also... Maybe diffuse the outer edge more.

Maybe the repeated impact/abuse would have been too great, but why didn't GM just mount the tail lights to the trunk and have the opening below the lights? Yeah you would have to alter the trunk opening line over to the rear fender, but that way you could make them as deep as you want and actually make the rear end of this car look as good as the concept. On top of that, it would actually GREATLY increase the size of the trunk opening which now seems mostly effected by the light housings being in the way. I dunno, just a thought. Keep up the good work though, I had completely forgotten how cool the concept's were. They kinda botched that along with the "oops, we forgot backup lights" debacle.
