    Nice mate! The taillights on the wagon, are they just clear ones with red night shades on the reverse and indicators? They look awesome.

    thanks mate.
    the wagon tail lights are aftermarket clear ones with night shade red top bottom.
    i have modified the tailight loom to suit so that the set up works like vp s1 sedan(stop and tail lights top and bottom. indercator in the middle, clear with orange globs
    the reverse lights are in the rear bar reflectors at the bottem of the tail lights

    go for it mate. im not sure how illeagle the reverse lights are due to been mounted out of the tail light area.
    might be able to drill anothe mounting hole in the clear zone and use the clear area for indercators and reverse?

    very much likely smooth the engine bay a little, not going extreme with it just tidy unused holes and repaint so it just looks clean again,
    wont start work till end of September as i have holidays in September and i wanna drive it alot.
