Thats what I was thinking but the only difference between the 2 tailgates is the plastic on the inside. I dont see why it would not be possible to get the newer plastic and extend wires. I could be totally wrong so if I am please let me know.

this is exactly what jason (boostjunkie) did with pats old v70r plastic. He spliced it in and it works perfectly. Only now he gets a bulb out warning whenever he puts the brakes on. Pull that out and your good. haha.

P.S. if I ever get another 850 im gonna paint it that color. But it will be a sedan. With my Tritons and black jewels. That would be so sexy.

For sure.

I like the car as a whole, but i definitely think it needs V70 taillight uppers.

Also, did you wetsand and buff the clear on the tails?

Looks great, love the color. What did it come off of?

it is a custom color, its not off anything.

we got the 3rd brake light from the dealer, we still have to go to a junkyard and find the correct harness for it and splice it. apparently the back glass was broken previously, and was replaced with v70 back glass..so it worked out.

i kept the lights amber because they were replaced amber and i don't need to spend the money just for that small of thing.

oh and the v90 wiper is on the the to do list.

and no sanding at all was done to the tails, just sprayed it on with testor's model spray "transparent black window tint", i was going to clearcoat them but just get around to it.

I would normally say to paint the tailgate lift panel and the grill, but since both are black, it is purposeful as-is. Nice work! Now install those corners.
