    lets also remember that at the same time they swapped tail lights, they also put in the 4.6 that I don't think anyone would argue that until pi upgrade was not an upgrade from the 302. They also cheaped out on the seats, door panels and a few other things that were nicer in the horz. I thought the vertical lights looked good in the new edge but on the original sn style the horz had a better looking ass.

    I agree I think the horiz looks more like the classic that the fat verticals

    How times change:

    Me: 06-16-2010
    I absolutely hated the horizontals when they came out in '94. As others have stated, since they were stating the "Mustang heritage" in the design, they should have been vertical from the start. That said, though, I am beginning to appreciate the horizontal tails more and more, especially because it is a 94/95 identifier.

    The P.O. of my car had installed the 96-98 tails, and at the time I thought, "Good. One less thing I need to do myself." I added sequentials to them almost right away, and get lots of compliments. I don't care if some of the "true" Mustang guys think they're ricer-ish, I like 'em.

    I have the original lights in boxes in the attic . Maybe one day I'll grow up, and put them on.



    Also me: 04-11-2016
    Well, color me grown up. I went back to my horizontals a couple of years ago, and wouldn't have it any other way now. It's just the right thing to do. And this is one place I love a wider rear-end look.

    Did you have to change anything to go back to original

    I didn't know it was doing that until I looked on my mobile! o_O
    On my PC, I have a Chrome extension that makes Photobucket pics work - Photobucket Hotlink Fix

    Here's the full photo (and the other post should be OK now, too.)

    No, because I had the original harnesses, but if you want to go from 96-98 to 94/95, you would just tape up the innermost socket (the one that's a running light only), and zip-tie it out of the way.

    Thanks! For awhile I thought I wanted different wheels again (I removed '98 Cobras for these), but now I wouldn't change them. I like the fact that they're a but unique, and they fit the car well. The fact that they're only 19 lbs per wheel isn't bad, either, especially with the 275 tires and Cobra brakes adding weight to each corner.

    Where in Colorado?

    Ended up finding some locally for 45$ got the wire harness too. Only think wrong is the little post on the pointed part is missing and of course I didn't see that too I got home. I'm painting them right now does anyone know if that will be a problem? Anyone know where to get the gaskets that go around the sockets?

    As an alternative, a craft store may have foam sheets from which you can make your own gaskets. I think a piece of 3/4" copper, sharpened on the end, may punch a hole the right size for the center, and you could cut around the outside with scissors. Depending on your cutting skills, they might not be pretty but the'd be functional. As for the posts. IIRC, I believe those are just locator pins.

    the only place I know would be to buy a new harness and take it off of it. Or a dab of rtv
