Looks great but aren't you concerned that greatly lowering your brakelight output might lead to yet another, and possibly more serious rear-ender. OUCH!

+1. I've never understood the trend of making your car less noticeable in a situation where you would want it to be more noticeable, i.e. when you are using your brakes.

On a positive note, those calipers look pretty sharp! Now that I've got some nice rims, I've added that to my post-deployment Yaris to-do list.

Nice black wheels with the black emblems and tail lights. are those DOT approved tail lights or they just the factory lights tinted? cops here in VA have a hard on for pulling you over for anything they can.

i agree on the tails, although nowadays with people always on the phone they wouldn't stop for a 50 foot flashing sign.

You should paint the outside of the rear drums as well.
