You can take the complete assembly off the car by removing the trunk liner and unbolting them inside the trunk then gently pull the light assembly from the lense there are some spring clips that hold this together also it has a dum dum like substance to seal them. If tou are trying to get the dust out you can run water in behind this assembly and get most of it out if you want it better the clear lense can be pulled off its glued in several spots so be careful not to break or crack it when you put it back together make sure the spring clips bite in good or you will loose the assembly going down the road. There are enough rough streets in Alton to knock them right off

in his description he states he has to remove them because of the laws (which is true in most states)

I thought of doing what Danny did, but I think it looks like the car was hit in the rear and it broke out the tail lights....

Nopi is coming out with clear tail lights like the lexus for the 83-92 mustangs, like the ones on the Lexus IS.(you know, the clear lenses with red markers and chrome look)Maybe if enough of us E-mail them with the request. (or call or write in) maybe they will do the same for us. If anyone knows of a vendor already, let me know. I also want clear lenses for the front as well.

ewwwww....why on earth anyone would want to do that is beyond me. ive seen those disgusting altezza lights on everything from Bentley Azzures to 1974 Datsun F10s, and every one of them was ugly ugly ugly, including the IS300 which is otherwise a nice looking car.
