Somebody did a set but it looked sorta messed up, because they also did an extreme widebody. Sorta looked like they rushed it because the tails themselves extended past the original bumper area and stuck out of the sides. I'll look for the post. BTW, if you want some tails, my company is making some Supra replicas.

actually, those aren't skyline lights, they're the accord 3-d tailights.

*correct me if i'm wrong*

But there is a picture of a 6 with corvette taillights, imho, it looked tight as hell with the rest of the custom work.

The Skyline tails would look garish on an Mx6.

First off it is alot bigger than the two sides of the Mx6, not to mention completely square versus rounded like an mx6 side. Any attempt at them would be horridly expensive and will probably look like ass.

The corvette lights are more doable since the rear of the vetter is slightly curved.

If you want to be truly ghetto fabulous and save some money do a Chevy Malibu light. They look almost like the R33 GTR tail lights and I am sure they are hell of a lot cheaper. Not to mention it has a rounded upper profile, more in keeping with the Mx6 lines.

Yeah, the link doesn't work. I looked up the old pic of the corvette tails on the 6, and that picture is dead here on mx6.com. Maybe its still somewhere else. I dunno. They did look hella tight tho.

wow, that aqua 6 is BUTT.

i was thinking about the r32 tails, they look like they'll fit MUCH better than the 33 or 34s....

I actually think that 6 looks pretty cool with the wide body. I think someone should make a kit wide like an old conquest, i think it would look good

actually all skyline tail lights have housings, none of them are just pods sitting in the body, and i agree, i think the R32's would fit better because their housing is shaped somewhat similar to our tail lights , whereas the R33 and R34 housings are bigger and oddly shaped. look on ebay, they have all kinds of them.
