Hey guys, I've ordered my supra tails from toyota here in Montreal for about 200$ I just wanted to know if anyone has done this and if I should expect any major issues with the install. Otherwise I'll post pics and install info.

My Mazda dealer's owner also owns a Toyota dealership, and I asked him about them and he said he'll get them for me no problem, and gave me a great price. I am going to post before/during/finished pics once i get the whole thing started. I am also going to change the spoiler at the same time because I think the stock spoiler will look odd with the supra tails. Will let you know as soon as things develop...awesome new site design btw, and the bb being here is really cool!

I picked up the Supra tail lights this morning and they look SWEET!!! Now I just gotta find the time to give up the car for the work. I'll post b4 and after pics when it's done and I just wanted to post this because I'm really excited about how good the lights look!!!

Can you also post some close up pictures of how much body work actually has to be done to make them fit... And how long it took them to do it...

Thanks

No problem will get pics of how much work has to be done. Any suggestions as to a wing I should put to replace the stock one, without putting a full body kit on?

One big problem on putting a new spoiler on is that you have to cover the original holes on the trunk. As for what kind of wing to put on... There are many touring style wings(some made with aluminium), and many other univeral styles. Go to Erebuni's site to see the pics.

If I had to choose a spoiler off of erebuni's site I think I'd go with the GTR type spoiler, but again I am really not sure how it'd look with no body kit, as with any other wing.

With out the body kit, some spoilers will look too crazy for stock MX6 [to be honest some are too much even with the kit..LOL...:)] Anyway, try to find some that are not too high or too crazy. Like I say the touring style will look nice, but this is just my opinion.

Yea I think I'll prolly wait until I make up my mind on a wing rather then rush into buying one and then not be satisfied with it later on. The tail lights I'll prolly have done next week then...maybe sooner. Thanks for the input!

Ive had my supra taillights for over a year now
sitting in my room , I can't find anyone to put
them in. I live in CT right on the New York line
so if anyone knows any custom body places around
help me out because in my area no one will do the
work.

man, i've beening working on mine for like 3 months now. since I'm doing it myself, i don't really have alot of time to work on it at once, but it's a bitch. all that trimming and welding. if I were to do it again, i'd have to say get the backend of a supra and use the taillight housing from that. it would be alot easier. that and don't do it yourselves unless you know what the hell your doing.

I'm sure it's definitely possible to do without the Supra's housing. I mean, other MX6'ers have done it. I think it has to do with the shop man's ability to work with fiberglass. if you go to a regular shop that only deals with collisions and stuff, I'm sure they'll flip you off if you ask them to do something custom like that.

Good luck guys.
