      look as good as what? how good painting looks depends on how good the painter is. if you want different tail light, then your going to have to customize with a set from another car, and no it is not a direct bolt on.

        any recommendations as to what taillights from what car would be the easiest to do?

            Now i know why your previous thread got closed....

            Anyways, you can't ask vague questions like that. There are millions of possibilities out there and there are none that are easier than the other because they all involve CUSTOM body work. Custom meaning it was not made to fit your car so you have to make it fit, which is not easy to do!

            IMO, prelude tails look pretty sick on a G2.

              Here are my custom tail-lights, I started with a pair of Leak-tezza's then modded the hell of them



              In primer, before painting.



              With the lights



              Don't flame me, these are only for show use, otherwise its the classic Honda ones for me

                    Don't remember if they make clear tail lights for the 4 door 90-93 tegs, but if they do, you could paint part of them red like so -

                    My old ones:



                    Or my new ones:



                    Just my two cents

                      How come you paitned the half red part over the side vents as well? Kinda looks weird. ehre are my clear tails paitned to resemble stock 100% except no pink lines. even painted the border like stock

                                Tchleung -

                                I painted across the vents (but did not paint the vents themselves red) because when I was going over styles/ways to paint, it didn't look right if I just stopped at the vents. I can't find anymore pics of the sides themselves, but I actually took out the vents when I was painting them. The red only continues in a straight line on the clear plastic, not the vents. Since I was starting off with just clears, and not clearing out OEM tails, I didn't have the red going all the way around the outer tail light, if you know what I mean. And when I was also setting up how I wanted to paint them, I decided against painting around the border like you did, because A) I didn't want to look completely stock because I wanted these to stand out a little more then stock and B) I was too lazy to mask off/cut the border line out for it.

                                It's simply a matter of personal preference, but I guess thanks for the constructive criticism??...

                                But regardless to your teg, she does look quite nice

                                      Tchleung - no probs at all man. Some poeple on here can just be such asses if they don't like something else someone did. But it's all good

                                      And xchadx167 - I myself used the red tail light spray that you can buy on eBay or at most speed shops. Stuff is kinda expensive though, I think I paid like 16$ for a can of it. But, it's good for like 2 sets of tail lights (i.e. 4 actual tail lights). I think you can even buy some type of transparent red spray paint made my Krylon. Heard it works pretty well too. HTH.

                                          two more things...

                                          the taillights i have now are obviously stock so is there a different color that you guys used to put over the stock color or is it the same color?

                                          also, for the clear part...... lol... what did you do? just clean it up? or did u spray a different paint in there like chrome or something? thanks

                                              I think/would assume that you'll be fine using any type of red transparent spary paint overtop of the stock red color. I personally have never done any type of painting on stock tail lights; the ones I paint have always been clear so I've never had to deal with any already on there color.

                                              As for the clear part, that, I would say search. Some people spray, others I've read have used aluminum foil, others just leave it as is. That is personal preference I guess. Since they don't make clear 4dr tail lights (from what I've read), I guess you'll just have to use stock ones or custom fit something else...? But if you do come across a set of clears that you can use, you can just leave the backing as is, unless you want to do something different.

                                              Best of luck

                                                  yep.. they never made 4dr tail lights. Only for 2drs. I rather do the prelude tail light conversion.
