Looking at buying a 91 sedan, thing is I really don’t like the tail lights. Wondering how much work is involved to convert the tail lights... I know it would also need a new bumper beam and cover. I’m just wondering about the trunk and whether I would have to weld in a new rear skirt ( vertical part between the tail ends of the quarter panels) from a facelifted car

I'd imagine you'd be better off cutting off the sheet metal and welding it to your car. I tried it in the junkyard, and the sides were the most different

The plastic panel that spans between the tail lights is sometimes painted or tinted or even removed. I think the back end looks way better without the panel.
