The problem with 1-3 (if that's what they were like at the fest) is that during the day you can barely see the brake lights during the day. Don't want someone rear ending me and messing up these beautiful lights.

I voted for #5 because it almost looks like fireworks going off, or sparks flying, which has a common theme with the "afterburner" concept, in a way.

Tony, I didn't understand your answer to the question about why using the stock inner lens material (instead of buying some other material and modifying that) is a more expensive approach... Why does using the already available inner lens material require more work than starting from scratch with some other piece of material?

We can CNC cut the other materials. Reusing the stock lens means reshaping by hand.

I'll tally up the votes and see how everyone is leaning.
