Look at Tater's work if you want something really unique, or wait until I come out with my line.

All three of your list setups seem like good ideas - but they aren't really too practical.

#1 doesn't quite flow with the lines of the Celica (there are not too many vertical lines on our cars)

#2 looks like the Altezza lighting thats available for pick-up trucks - and those are almost imposable to see when the guy puts on his brakes because in reality, the circle diameter is very very small and not visible if you are standing further than 10 feet away

#3 also doesn't give as much coverage (as problem as #2), and the square-style shape of the reflectors doesn't organically flow with the rest of the vehicle's reflectors - its got a similar style to what is found on late model 1950s and '60s vehicles.

good suggestions - but our cars are very difficult to design for, since the entire shape of the Celica is so incredibly organic, whole still keeping its visually aerodynamic shape

My goal is too come up with a tail light that no one has. I do not want altezzas/euros (everyone has thoughs). If it is unfeasable I will likely go wiht bats overlays. However, I want something semi-orginal. Any ideas?
