I think you could. Bake the lights to seperate the lense. Then have at it!

i havent had my truck in 5 weeks, its in the shop so i cant really just go do it, so yeah im wasting time making a thread. just want to see opinions. i have to think of a reverse light, maybe it'll run along side the red or two on either side.

and also, tails have two filaments in the bulb, one lights up when ur headlights are on, and they both are lit up when u brake,

so ...

we can't tell you what you think looks cool.

if you like it, that's all that matters. if you half ass it and the final lights look like crap, i'm going to make fun.

I think it looks good at night. I think it will look like shit in the day time. The look you are going for you might as well put in some old caddy lights. If your going to use stock or even an aftermarket tail, having 1,2 or 3 strips like this wont look good.
