I had thought of this a long time ago, but I never went through with it. I remember a member had painted the yellow of his tail lights with some candy apple transparent paint from pepboys to make it match the 98/99 tail light style. I was thinking of doing this to my 96, but then I thought, what if I mask it so it looks like it has stripes. If you have ever seen the tail lights of a VW beatle, they are striped in the turn signal part. I couldn't figure out what would be the right size of the stripe, plus my car was annoying me, so I never got around to doing this. Figured I would throw this idea out.
