yes. and if you searched and couldn't find anything it's cuz you didn't look hard enough.

except your'e doing it backwards, lol, most people swap the newer style tails for the older tails.

I like mine, All red 95-99's.Wired like toyo's with the turn signal in the reverse lens. Original plan was for a sunfire sedan rear bumper with reverse lights, But I find not having them doesn't bother me. Still have the tails on, this pic was taken a while ago. That lid has already been painted and replaced again haha. I have a Z24 rear on it now too. Much has changed.

If your reverse lights were/are orange, did you wire these up to be blinkers? I like the look of the orange reverse lights for blinkers, kind of like a poor mans toyo tails. this with a sunfire rear bumper for reverse lights would be perfect. I was thinking in addition to, or in replacement of, leds for the lights. but not your usual drop in led replacements. get a bunch of 5mm leds and drill holes in the backside of the housing to stick them through. held in place with silicone they would be good. the best part of keeping the old bulb too is you don't have to worry about the fast flash or anything.
