    lights

    the other day i saw some lights in that shape in the junkyard i think they were on a pontiac sunbird:yup:


    I was thinking of measuring the size then going back to measure the pontiacs
    but its kind of hard since i'm 16 and you have to be 18 to get in but ive gone in twice in alredy dont want to push my luck i remember last time i went the guy just kept on,looking at me but didn't say nothing i tried to act like if i go there all the time.:D

    To be 100% honest I don't think it would look all that great, but whatever floats your boat.

    I'm inclined to agree with Jamie on this one but my opinion may not count for much. I'm not a fan of big bumpers...I'd have to do an entire bumper swap but to each his own.:)
