 Re: opinions please
what about ADR's do you have to get any custom lights (front or back)certified in any way?

This is somthing that i made up for my ute. I machined up the outer rings from ally, the lenses are optical lenses, and i used stainless steel cocktail dishes for the reflector.

 Re: opinions please
you could also put a small light beside the numberplate or around that region and hook it up as a reverse light
most people wouldnt even notice it till it lit up

So I am guessing that the big hole has the tacho and what guages are you fitting either side??? Looks too much like a dash panel to me....

 Re: opinions please
personally i reckon some stock tailights blacked out a bit would look much better. if you do go down the custom way they should at least sit close to flush with the body but it's your car.

 Re: opinions please
Try to smooth them off a bit. Just so they dont stick out too far. Well done on being different .

Your Idea looks similar to some of the other custom lights out there (like the altezza brand stuff) so there might even be something out there that with minor modification will fit.

hmmm lots of bog

I'm a fan of shiny new Nissan tail lights on utes, but each to their own.

i think they actually look pretty cool and should look killa when finihsed. but you gotta make them so the circles dont stick out as far. other than that they look the goods
