  • Center Reflector Mod ? Zenki taillights

    Has anyone seen this "300ZX" center light done as a mod , or am I looking at an aftermarket / fully custom part? I know I can't make the red part light up (or can I?) Because the reflector has black plastic injected behind it. ( Zenki)

    I found this pic on CarDomain so that was no help.

    Edit: wrong section, needs to be in upgrades.

    Totally doable by disassembling (it can be carefully separated) and sanding off the silver backing on the letters and back-lighting with LED.

    I did one many years ago using a cold cathode tube from a flatbed scanner, but never installed it on the car and used it as a bench light. Leds are a much better choice now,

      I thought about doing this mod but was worried about cracking the reflector when separating it. I also wasn't sure where to get the aluminum backing to reflect the light.

        Here is a procedure on how to do it.

        Restore it, Don't crush it. They don't make em like this anymore.
