Thought I may as well throw mine up as well, have it since May this year, its a 1990 1.8 16v. Pics were taken on the way home with it in Holyhead (Outside a famous "resturant"
). It needs a few things cleaned up on it and is being treated as a work in progress, but is still being used as a daily driver

Ah you mean this one.... yeah I have to admit it did bring a fierce smile to my face when I got it, the smile was quickly removed with all the power steering issues.... but yeah they are sorted now

Got the chance to do a bit of work on the car this weekend and was just looking for your honest opinions on the tinted lights I have fitted, also added a third brake light cos a couple of people have said that it is hard to see when I am braking.

I have included a pic of the old lights beside the tinted ones for a comparison.

Just looking for your opinions, don't mind if they are good or bad

As I said to you last night Steve I'm not sure if they go with the dark colour that well. The tinting job itself is spot on and they'd look really well on a silver car but I have to say I like the inpro type rear lights on a dark coloured corrado like yours.

Still looks good though

difficult call, i do like the tinted ones, but i think they could be darker.
From what i hear a lot of the in pro lights for the corrado can be a poor enough fit

imo they could be a bit darker to match the colour of the body, the paint job on them looks spot on, how did
you do them, was it a spray can or painted on?? ive been considering doing they very same job myself on my raddo but havent got around to it yet,
QUOTE also added a third brake light cos a couple of people have said that it is hard to see when I am braking.
mabey im blind but i cant see any extra light at the rear
