It's surprising they never made aftermarket tails for it. I always liked the tinted tails tho. Loved it on the Cobra, looks pretty good on the mkiii

Actually, there were some semi-mass produced aftermarket tails made for the MKIII. They were only available in Japan and were all clear. From what I recall they were pretty much the same as the 89+ tails but replace all the red plastic with clear. They looked kind of cool on the white car I saw pics of, but the other color cars I saw pics of I didn't really like much.

Did they still have amber signals? I thought by law all cars in Japan had to have amber signals. Thats cool tho, I'd like to see a pic!

By law they have to have a certain percentage of red as well... I didn't say that I thought they were street legal. Half the aftermarket lighting accessories available here in the US aren't legal for a car parked on the street much less being driven.

I'll look through the pictures I've collected over the years and see if I have any of those tails.

Thanks. I'd be curious to see em! I remember a guy from Japan but my 99 Cobra tails because he had a terminator and the 99 was the only new edge style that had amber signals. He gave me $250 shipped no questions for em. I was like WOAH.

Here's one I've always liked quite a bit:

It's a Gains tail light cover. I don't know if the tail lights on that car are the clear ones I've seen or if they've done something with the stockers for that look.



EDIT:

Okay, dug up some info. The clears were made by a company called Takakaira (website is down). They are not very pretty... I forgot thinking that they looked like they were covered in fish scales.






And there are some VERY cool LED conversions out there:

same type of car as mine. color and everything. interesting to hear the color is rare.

nice to see what it would look like with rims and that hatch cover on the back.

maybe not nice to hear the color is rare. mine needs a paint job and i want the same color. maybe this will or will not be a problem of availability but price.
