Check out the full Garage Vary Nostalgic Tail Lamp install! For those who don’t read Japanese, this might be helpful.
It hasn’t quite been two months since painting (I was supposed to wait at least that long before applying vinyl), but I could not wait to install these tail lights any longer. Plus, the nice weather is due to go away soon in favor of winter. So. Without further delay, I present Sharka’s New Ass!
Yes. That’s the good stuff. Sharka is looking good. Got his ass in the air all proud. Yes, his. As I’ve previously mentioned, Sharka is a boy car. I did not pick the gender. He’s just not feminine.
Now check out the post title again. Yeah. That’s how we do it here at revlimiter.net. Blog posts about asses.
But wait. What’s that shiny badge under the keyhole?
This is a Mazda RX-2 badge, imported from Australia. I searched ebay for just the right badge for weeks. Most vintage text-only ones like this went on the center trunk lid and were huge as a result of the placement. It was very difficult to find a small one that would fit in the available area on the GV tail panel. But find it, I did.
It is not plastic. It’s some sort of metal. Chrome dipped, with the letters painted black. It’s heavy and awesome and well worth the price I paid. It adds a nice touch to the vintage panel.
I’ve been looking at this Garage Vary kit for about 8 years now. I never saw one in person till I took it out of the shipping box. And now, to see it over Sharka’s bumper? Yeah. It’s good. It’s a big change from the tail lights I’ve been looking at for 10 years. It might take a little getting used to. But as of about 24 hours after the install, I’m very happy.
