Rear-end looks a bit empty for me. Clean chop however.

Nice and clean. I prefer the 'non-americanized' version though.

why is this considered "americanized"?
01-08-2005, 03:27 PM
it's really clean.. but i don't like the idea... good job tho..<p>Americanized because it uses the vibe rear tail lights correct?

RugbyPlaya... thanks for the interest, wow. just try not to post too much in a small time frame, the computer does block you out for "flaming"<p>enjoy your stay<p>as for this: I was trying to turn it into a Dodge, but I actually screwed up (amzaing... I screwed up :-P) So since I'm not a choper at all, CP offered to do this very clean chop for me, but he also decided not o do the Dodge thing.<p>and I think of these as Grand Cherokee taillamps, not Vibe <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bangin.gif" BORDER="0">

Can´t say it´s that clean, and not sure if I prefer this one to the original. This could be called "Americanized" because of the red turn signals and the absence of the rear fog lights. And the new License plate! Am I right?

As I told Andre when he showed me the very rough idea for this, those new lights look a lot like Aveo taillamps for some strange reason.

Vibe, Grand Cherokee, Aveo, and a couple more GM''s, all i really did was copy pasted them...I mena i only used those origina l lights and moved the white to bottom and red to top. They are not from other cars....Look pretty kool IMO.
