    Chop request.

    I have recently purchased a 1987 Toyota MR2 and want to do something about the tail lights. I am talking to a friend in NY about glassing me up a new back panel but the problem is I cant seem to find any tail lights that are flat, they all seem to wrap around to the side of the car. I was just wondering if some people could chop some stuff into the back of this MR2 so I could see what It would look like. If anybody would like more details on what I am looking for just ask!!
    Please and thank you!!!!!




    EDIT: This is NOT a picture of my car, this is a random MR2 found on the net.

    1987 Toyota MR2: Winter project. Body work done! Now its down to replace fuel pump, clutch, front tires, give it a quick paint and its ready for the road again.

    1996 Subaru Legacy L: Winter car, thats right... car. Not beater, this car is too nice to be a beater. Only minor upgrades planed.

    First off I cant find parts for this thing at all, I am picking up springs and shocks tomorrow that where bought with the car in 1987 when the car was brand new. I still have yet to run to a Nopi shop to see what they have but when I search on eBay, TRD site, and every other site I can think of nobody has anything. I dont really wanna do Supra tail lights, I was thinking about going to old school American muscle tail lights because it will fit with the over all angular look of the car. But I just wanna get an idea of what would look good. I would do it myself but A: I dont have PS and B: I would probably suck at using it, lol.

    I was thinking more along the lines of:





    I am also open to suggestions but I am thinking more of 70's and 80's style.

    I really dont think so. I am thinking about giving the 89 Trans Am checker board taillights a try. And well, if I dont like it I could always just put the stock piece back in until I find something I like.
