custom tail lights...anyone seen en
« on: January 14, 2011, 01:29:36 AM »
I was surfin the web and i came acoss a pic of an amc concord that had custom smoky clear tail lights. They look very very sharp, it was on CAR DOMAIN and under the name AMCYA. I have never seen these custom tail lights..I was just wondering if anyone here has ever seen them on any other eagles or concords. If anyone knows where i could get some .... please let me know. Those would totally hot on a jet black wagon!!!...

thanks,
shanebo

i have heard of putting stock taillamps in the oven at low heat to remove the stock red lens and then heating the clear material and conforming it to the shape of the taillamp housing.  i have never tried it or seen any results of it, but i might just have to one of these days with a scrap pair laying around the ECS

I have never seen a set of tail lights like that before on an AMC anyway.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

 I had a silver SX/4 back in the eighties that I blacked out the taillights on. It's a special paint that allows the red to show through when lit. Looked pretty cool. http://www.vhtpaint.com/niteshades.html

Ya know the more I look at those tail lights the more fake they look. I could be wrong but it just looks computer generated to me...They are kinda like big foot...I have a picture of them but no one here has ever seen or heard of such a thing.

I've seen this car in person at the 2007 Kenosha AMC meet...but don't remember looking at the rear of the vehicle.

Very nice car though might I add...

I was thinking the same thing. It looks like he merged a black and white photo of the tail lights into that photo but it's harder to do that an an angle like he did.
