Well I tried searching for this but maybe I wasn't using the right search words. Either way, it's time to hit the sack and I want to ask the question now so maybe I'll get a response by tomorrow :)

I want to know if anyone has converted their reverse light to a turn signal, and made the red turn signal non-functional. And then put fog lights or something in their bumper (I have the SVT rear bumper) to serve as reverse lights. Obviously you'd have to put an amber 3156 bulb in the reverse light socket in order for it to work.

I just don't feel like spending close to 200 for a set of stock euro tail lights if I can do it this way for around 50 or maybe less.

Also, does anyone know what tail lights these are:

It would easy to do honestly. Basically doing the euro wiring mod and then running the reverse to an exterior lighting unit that could be in the bumper. I have been looking into just for the sake of custom.

And since my bumper is painted satin i wouldn't mind hacking it to mold something in honestly....

And i have spare bulbs...hmmm TO THE WORKSHOP!!

Haha sweet. I have the svt bumper so technically I could hack it... but i'd probably just stick them behind the diffuser, unless the light came with a ring around it so it would look stock. I think it'd look pretty sick.

You could just wire the signal wires to the reverse light circuit. Only problem that would do is when ya signal the power may backfeed and light up both signals through the reverse light circuit. So you would need to wire up some diodes to prevent that.
