Looks great, it seems like the black would stand out more, but that may be because its a red truck

It looks like I'm going to have to buy another set of '06 tail lights to try this. I think it looks great! Nice gauge, too!

I'm thinking that I'll buy an aftermarket set and do it. I searched and searched for an affordable pair of original Ford ones, and finally got them. I would hate to risk ruination by trying to heat them and pull them apart.

Also, what is "kewn"? I've been seeing that for a while now.

I found a set of aftermarket ones on eBay that were cheap because they had a slight surface cracks. It's definitely on my list of things to do.

I know a guy who used to work for my old man who buys and sells OEM headlights and taillights on Ebay. He buys them from body shops and everything and cleans them up. I've sold a few to him before.
