How can I upgrade my rear end facia to get rid of the lame reflectors. I want it to be the same color as my car or like the crown vic.

I hated the reflector panel as well.

First, I tried nightshading it, but that didn't do enough.

Then I bought a completely different reflector panel, and didn't feel it.

Next I just painted it. Simplest thing to do, auto body shops can match our colors no problem, cost me 50 bucks after tax.

Yup, doesn't matter if it's the red or silver reflector panel, they will look the same after it's painted. 03+ tails.

i also dont feel it for the reflector panel, thats why i will be swapping to a sport black and chrome unit with tails as well. i also did consider paint, but since mine originally came with a crack in it no sense at this time just swap it out.

You're "lost" because tom6687 doesn't have the common sense to provide his/her vehicle information ( year, make, model ) and/or provide it in his/her sig'.

BTW ... aero' Crown Victorias had reflector panels.

I Just finished swapping my rear panel to new stuff.
I dont want to paint it though, as new paint will be darker anyways.





one reason i swapped also was my original had a pretty good crack from last owner, was all rtv siliconed (eww)



can just make out by keyhole and back up light.

If you meant you were looking at my for sale link, I only have one silver fascia, but the chrome is scratched up a bit (off a taxi)

Otherwise I found my current one in a junkyard, same with the tails.
