That is what i tried to do, Get the housing hot, It got too hot and did not work, But i have one more idea and it calls for silver tape and bondo I will fill the step in the housing and then use silver tape to make it work.

Is it possible to extend the glow effect onto the parts highlighted by the arrows on this pic?

I believe that is only possible with a new housing. Even with a new one, it will be tough with the angles involved.

To the others, thanks for the encouraging words!

That looks absolutely incredible. About the closest so far. Repeat it 3 more times and I think that will look about as close as you can get with stock housings.

Thanks!

That was my second try and I have a couple more versions to flesh out. At this point, I still plan on selling these, so forgive me if I don't spill the beans just yet.

If I run into a snag, I'll post what I have figured out so someone else can carry on.

The outside portion is for running lights and the center is the brake light.

Damn, that's nice Tony. All I need is a distance shot (preferably with it in the car :P) and a shot with brakes applied before I crown you the winner and nearly commit to shelling out the cash.

Quick question though, if you sell them will they be as complete unit or a do-it-yourself conversion kit.....? Also, how long do you envision the conversion taking once you get the process down?

Thanks!

For now, the plan would be to sell completed units. A core-charge would be refundable if you ship me your old ones in good shape.

Thanks for finding that bigger pic!

Getting that look will require a new housing, and I have yet to pull a tail light to see if there is room to do that. I doubt that there is the space, or they would have done it. Now, that does not mean that we are dead, as there are those of us that would give up some trunk space to get that look!

Also what would be the life expectancy and how would you gaurantee the product if something goes wrong lets say 6 mo - 2 year from now. I had such a product on last vehicle and guys sold their cars and never heard from them again
