I might go for it, Troy. Did you replace these with real VII tails?

yea, I have U.K. 7's now, the only difference is the red stripes across the turn signal, and that the 7's lens is red plastic, so they look "pink" out in the sun.

I forget - do you live down in the Springs, too? You'll be at Bandi on Sat right? I could buy and swap them there if it's easy. I've never removed the tails, so I don't even know how long it takes. Let me know...

I'm not much more than 5 mins from Bandi right now. I'll take the tails whether it be tonight, tomorrow, or Sat.

Whenever you want, no problem with me, they are sitting in my garage, waiting to help someone get rid of the stock "ricer" tails.

you are up at the gov't center, right? my father works there.

these are the VII tail's, can you see the difference? I can, but most can't especially from a distance.

I've known the difference since I first saw your car in person. I like the VIIs a little more due to the horizontal lines, but the solid red is a little better than the near-pink.

I'm near the Fed center but am actually working right up against I-70 at NREL on Cole St off Colfax (across the street from Colorado Mills mall). My hotel is on Simms and 6th, so it's even closer to the Fed center, but I haven't been over there yet - just see it when driving down 6th.

they look much better now than when you last saw them. i wet sanded/re clear-coated them on monday. much better than before, and will last a lot longer.

I haven't quite figured out how to replicate the horizontal lines on the tails without it being cost-prohibitive. I can do the pink, but I think the red looks more "lancerish" I love sleepers.
