Carbon Fiber tailights install question
What do I use to cut the plastic to make the lights fit. Also, after the installation there's going to be an open spot where you can see the back of my light from the inside trunk, what should I do to cover it so it looks decent, duckt ap is ugly

I have carbon fiber tail lights on my 2k GTS and had no gaps or fillers that had to be used. What brand did you get and where did you get them? You shouldnt have to cut a damn thing. Return em if they need mods.

Mike-

That's true for 2000 celicas. Afterwhich ... 2001 - 2002 (dunno bout 2003) toyota changed the layout for the truck plastics but not the tail light locations. So with after market tail lights the trunk plastics need to be modified a little bit.

It's really simple.
