So i got my clear/altezza taillights but they look awful with that red center piece.

I've looked around on ebay and have searched around here for a while but can't seem to find them anywhere.

Can anyone help ?
Thank you in Advance

keep looking

the SE-L ceterpiece/backup assembly looks the best though.

Check out justin's site to see it.

junkyards and keep searching ebay. took about a month for me to get one.

do very broad searches as well.

don't look for "sentra trunk centerpiece"

just do "sentra trunk"

also try just "sentra taillight"

"sentra rear"

gotta go through a lot of junk but you'll find one eventully.

or paint what you have...

damn I know I forgot to say that. I thought about it but after going and getting my pic I forgot to post it.

paint it to match your tails or the color of your car. Or you could go black as well.

So...

Those black (on picture 1) or blue (on picture 2) are the stock ones painted ?

If they are, who could paint that for me ?
I mean, what kind of shop would do that for me ?

(I'm a disaster paiting, LOL)

teh black one came off of a 95 E I think?!?!?!? maybe even the 95 XE had them? They're kinda rare and they are a bit hard to come across, however they do from time to time.

What is different from the black one on the picture and the one i have on my car ? (99 Sentra GXE).

The reverse lights ?

So how do I get this painted ?
Which kind of shop would paint this for me ?

the color of the bar is differnt. I'd say ahve it professinally painted if I were you.

any paint shop will and can do it. probably 100 or so to get it done I'm guessing.

Remove the 2 screws that hold in EACH of the reverse lights

open the trunk, there are 5 or 6 bolts that hold the centerpiece on. I think they are 8 MM. You'll have to use a deep socket to get to them. It may take some prying to get off b/c of the sealent used on them.

When you get it out you'll have to take the wires off of the reverse lights, they have some hooks that secure it to the centerbar.
