Im sorry to tell you but you cant clear your SE tails because the lens and reflector (red part of the lens) are all one piece. On the GT there two seperate pieces one is the clear lens and the other are the red reflectors that you can take out.

you have to purchase GT tails in ordered to clear them. Check the for sale section here or do a search on ebay for them.

Alright, I see, I just remember back in an earlier thread where this was a concern, and I didn't want our friend here to have problems fitting GT tails into his SE.

Hexx.... your avatar, its not in the manuel, they do look like they are a different shape, and im not going to check google for everyone who wants to know something on the forum when other people would have the answer because I dont have time to look 'everything' up.

you could also tint your SE tails blacc like i did. not sure what color your GA is but it looks good on silver and blacc

Hey Twista...I have a cleared GT passenger side tail if you want it. There is one slight crack in the inner corner but you can't even tell it's there. You can come pick it up or meet me somewhere for it. Make me an's just taking up space in my apt. right now.

If you don't have the time to search, you don't have the time to post or argue here.

It's not too difficult really. I'm not trying to be an asshat. I only tell people to read my avatar when I KNOW the subject has been touched upon more than once. I know its not in the manual, you could find it on google, and your best bet is to search here.

You could also use common thoughts here and think "aren't the housings the same. the fender lines and trunk are also the same." Put two and two together and the lights should fit.
