Has anyone tried to make a taillight in the shape it needs to be and re do the insides. It looks like it would be easy to someone that had the knowledge in electricial and maybe 3d printing or scanning. Just a thought. There has to be a simple answer with all the great minds that has to be here on this forum.

not near as easy as people think to make a light. IN maybe 2-3 years there will be advancements that may make it easier. There area couple of people on here that have modified their lights in a cheap way . There are 22 xlrs right now totaled and in line to be sold. Most have good lights and few will be rebuilt. The prices are coming down from what they were a year ago. As fewer cars need them and more cars are parted out... price drops.

no where. No one has a machine that can do it .The cost would far exceed what used ones are going for. 3d printing is fine for a lot of small items but a headlight or taillight are beyond the ability of most printers .Those that do prototype work would charge you way more than used ones on ebay are selling for and there are about 40 for sale right now.
