S14-S15 rear end conversion

Ok, just wondering if anybody out there knows anthing about doing a JDM Silvia conversion on a 95 240sx. I have seen a fiberglass skyline tail light conversion, but never a Silvia Tail light conversion. It looks to me like the seamlines on both cars a pretty similar. I'd apreciate any info on this. thanx.

I've never seen a kit, but every custom job I have seen looks bad.

Really? Geeze, I wonder why that is. Cuz I saw one on SuperStreet.com it's an S13 with an S15 rear conversion and it looks pretty straight.

yeah, that is what i'm talking about! That's the first time I've seen it done on an S14. Looks kinda weird though, not sure why. Any Idea how hard it is to do that?

That orange s13 with s15 rear is ugly as hell. IMO the tails do not flow at all and leave the rear looking bulky and just plain ugly.

IDK man I think it looks pretty legit myself, but it's relative right? To me it looks like he did a pretty good job getting the lines to flow so it looks as close to the JDM S15 as possible. But it seems like unless there's already a pre-fab convo kit it'll be a real pain in the *** to do so maybe I'll have to just settle with my OEM tails.

Ive seen the orange one in person, looks hideous.

Tailight converisons will look bad, and cost a lot to make it look decent,

You wont be able to achieve any good flow or the correct width with the s14 rear,

s15 FTL on anything but the s15...as for the grand am, yea they are slightly similar but they dont look anything alike in my book...its like sayin just get a probe instead of an s13..cmon give it a little bit of respect guys

oh and i too have seen the orange s13 in person, i give him an A+ for the quality but a thumbs down for the idea
