Those tails look horrible on your car; send them to me and I'll give you $50.

I think next time I'm in France I'm going to phone up every junkyard I know in my area to see if they have Neon tails then grab a plane to the US and sell them out of my suitcase.

hey that is done pretty nice, what kind of paint did you use? spray paint from a can or something else? (sorry I don't have any kind of experience in painting a car)

Cus... I may just do this myself, looks do-able :P
