Modern Tail Lights
 
Is anyone aware of aftermarket euro, clear, or any type of upgrade for the tail lights on a 944......Thanks, Ray

You could black them out very easily.

I've seen them all black (aribop's car post #9), all red, and I've seen the 968 back end put on 944s.

mine are blacked out, but im getting kind of tired of the look. I think I want to maybe try more of a 'smoked' look.

here's my tail lights (currently)

again in the corner of the last picture you can see my car with the blackouts look like from a distance.

Your friend needs a torsion bar adjustment.

You could make the amber light red, so the tail light is all red/white, like Techno Duck, Keith, and others.

I think that blueish car could use a few more wheel weights on the outside of the rim. :icon501:

I prefer and run with the Volvo Amber painted Red scheme myself.

zoltan944 04-08-2008 04:06 AM

what red paint matches? or do you do the whole thing the same red?

I think someone on this forum has 944 lights that are similar to this:
http://di1.shopping.com/images/di/41...00x100-0-0.jpg

I think that blinker is white instead of yellow, I wonder where did he got them.. I'm searching the net for them and no luck so far..


btw: painted lights on the blue car are the uglyest ****job I've ever seen on 944. not to mention the horizontal placement of wiper.

Anyone have a photo of smoked out lights? Would tinted film work/is it legal?

I was looking at this site to smoke out the tail lights on my other car: http://www.aerotect.net/aerotect_016.htm

I did the Testor's candy apple red that was described in a bunch of other posts. Looks better than the stock orange.

Yes there is a forum member who actually manufactures lights similar to that... well kinda. He essentially makes new lenses which are clear or red, and can make any combination of cells either color depending on your preference. I've seen him rearrange them in all sorts of combinations. I forget his username, but "cass944" or something like that sounds familiar. He's got a pretty clean looking purple-ish-maroon colored 944 n/a.

Cass944 04-08-2008 10:20 AM

you're thinking of Damien (leadFoot944)

and good luck finding him.

here are mine that he made for me long ago

You can swap in a whole back bumper / tailight assembly of a 968. Can get quite pricey.

If ya want to go with the retro look, just get the aftermarket panel that sits between the taillights, as found on the white car. ( :eek: ) At least it is a period correct taillight mod.

Oh, and the blueish car's "updated" lights are teh ghey. No sir, I don't like them.

Nice Ren N Stimpy slip-in there. LOL.

Klearz.com has the Rear Amber Section Piece of the Taillight in Clear.

Testors Brand Paint has a Translucent Candy Apple Red which is used to Change your Amber to Red.

Smoked/Blacked out Taillights are illegal, however the enforcement of this law differs from region to region. Your lights need to shine bright enough to be easily visible. They are also Reflectors for help visibility in dark, hazardous conditions, covering Lights up limits or destroys this element. Niteshades seems to be the popular taillight tint spray for the import crowd.
