    I think the lights look too far away, but in real life I bet they are longer and would look better. Can anyone bored enough can do it on a eclipse?

    I kind of like it. The shroud around them kind of looks like it doesn't belong.

    That's BAD ASS! I like it, It actually flows nicely with the rear of the car (Better than the Viper). It would be a lot of work to do it, but I am sure it can be done.

    They kind of look like the Dodge Dart tail lights.

    Looks a little more plausible for us eclipse guys.
    The corner of the lights would need to be a little pointier. I like it though.

    I second this, I think the dodge dart tails would really look nice and be more plausible than the srt lights also love that people are still trying to make the DSM's pop :hellyeah:

    The dart lights look nice to but maybe for 1g it's two tail light unless you was hacking the back of the eclipse rear to open like that dart it would sense weird because you be under assumption the inner peace is going lift with the trunk

    I like it but the price for the tail light s is going to be out the roof, if it wasn't going to cost a arm and leg i would look in to it

    Hey yall. I hope you're ready to answer this question once and for all. I found a 2015 Dodge Viper ACR tail light with lense damage for $100. I am dying of curiosity to know how it will mount up so of course I bought it

    If it works then it will be a small hop and skip towards paying $1k for a OEM set... and if I decide to do the Carbon fiber cowl another $1.1K

    :cool:

    Here ya go to anyone curious. Can it be done, yup looks like it. But going to need to chop up both tailights and the mount points on your car at least if you have a talon. You would also have to fabricate some sort of shroud for the sides so it doesn't look like a complete autozone makeover job

    Also looks like you'd need to cut into the metal the oem tail lights bolt to so that the Viper lights could sit more flush. Been wondering about this since it originally got posted. I at least say thanks fro donating $100 to getting a final answer to this. Would definitely look great if custom fitted.

    If anything, this does show a size comparison for anyone interested.

    I agree. Honestly it seems more feasible than I anticipated. 2 of the 5 mounting bolts line up with oem holes AND are the same size so you could use the same nuts.

    The biggest downside is the price, but damn these tailights are beautiful in person plastics have come along way in 20 years
