CV8R Blood Red tail lights in the HSV

Swapped out the depo's for these.

Not sure I'll keep them, would prefer 06 lights. Just didn't care for the louver look in the depo lights. May try these in "Money Pit"


Depos




CV8R's

As badass as that car is... that was the ONE thing I criticized. All that awesome work, only to put those cheap tails on. Those CV8R tails look 100x better!!! '06 tails might even set it off more. If you were willing to pay the coin, you should've looked into the 427 tails. They're basically the '06s without the reflectors. I want those badly, but they are some serious coin.

I agree. I really wanted 06 stockers, but I picked these up for dirt dirt dirt cheap. Sold the depo's and pocketed the difference. I have looked at getting the 427's for "money pit". Just haven't pulled the trigger.

Tom never does any mods or upgrades to any of his toys that he has to spend money on. Ever.

06 tails would likely look in place there, what about lightly tinted vz tails? Tom, I'll send you mine if you wanna try all combos.

Thanks. But I have since picked up a set of 06. Not sure what I'll keep in the cars or just swap them as I like.
