My sister had a 2002 Accord and I saw some pics a while ago of an Accord that had some tail light covers on it. Any of you guys have tail light covers or know where I can see some? Thanks

Covers are ghetto man. If she has a sedan, take out the orange box leaving only the red and clear. If she has a coupe, I'd have them professionally smoked to the tint you want. I've seen that on a black coupe, looked great.

well taking the orange box isn't illegal, but as long as you replace the bulbs with amber, if not, you can get tickets like my, that's y now I'm with Altezza :) but luckly i found some cheap amber bulbs on AutoDynamic.com they're like $8/pair, i think they're the same with hyper whites... so i'm going to put my custom red/clear tail later.....
as far as taking them... i forgot, there's a place that show you how to do it on 5th gen accord... it's basiclly the same procedures on 01-02 accords.....
here's some examples....





yes i had hyper white bulbs on there... got ticketed once :) and replace them with stock bulbs, which is clear.... and still got ticketd... i just hate cops in cities around me... i've been driving on that hyper for like 6 months in my area, no problem, but when i went to the cities around my place... got pull over every time... sux...

just kidding, if its a sedan look for some clear red and whites, or if its the newer models, just take out the orange strip and buy some amber bulbs...

if its a coupe..leave it alone......they look damn sexy from the factory..payce
