I have a one piece corvette tail light panel on my car as well as an madarch widebody kit. I have a second corvette panel set as well that is split in the middle. I'm going to move the tail light panel out so it meets the edges of the widebody and glass it into the rear clip. I have made a few photoshops versions of the two panels put together in various ways to get mirrored curves but I don't know what I like so here they are. Tell me what you think and if you have any ideas feel free to post them up as I'm terrible at photoshop. The original unmolested car is #1, #3 is the first 'shop with the lights moved out, glassed in, and some of the gaps fixed. The dark area in between the lights is open and some sort of mesh. There will be no trunk and there will be an Esprit style lip spoiler on there as well that will go from hip to hip. The two circles in the middle of the lights are the exhaust pipes. Where the pipes are now, stock location, will be opened up more and diffusers put in the holes. I tried to draw diffuser fins but I suck. I'm personally leaning towards number 5 or 6.

#1.

The rest of the renderings detract from the simple beauty of the design.

I like #1, but that's been done a few times already. If you want something a bit different, #3 is nice, but the rest of the car should be smoothed and given the same treatment to make it look right. I also like #11, but again, the rest of the car should follow the same theme (i.e. Aggressive hood venting, brake ducts, fender vents, etc.)
For me mods are about continuity and theme.

1 or 7, the rest look too busy. Except 3. That looks too boring!

I'm seeing a lot of #1. The problem I have with 1 is I'm trying to remove the little "lips" at the back of the fenders that the widebody introduces. It also, in my opinion, gives an odd look to the car because the tail lights are so far in. Kind of like the newest model of Miata, which I don't like the looks of. Also for #1 and #3, the exhaust stays in the stock location. That isn't going to happen. The car is getting a turbo 3800. The exhaust is coming off the turbo and going straight out the back of the car between the taillights for a super short and simple routing set up. I'm going to make diffusers that will go into the stock exhaust locations so they aren't just holes.

You might want to check if there are any legal height/angle requirements affecting your between the taillights exhaust.
Have you considered raising the license plate and centering the exhaust below?

mr_corean yeah we had that fender lip taken out on my mad arch widebody as well, an example of what was done can be seen here.

Also check out what this guy is doing with his tail light panel like yours.

When you eliminated the fender lip did you just taper the hips back into the lights?

Lots of nice looking tail light panels shown here but I prefer the Corvette C4 tail lights with the oval shape or the rectangular ones with the rounded corners. The round lights look nice but IMO present a more 80's Ferrari type appearance.

Agreed which is why I would prefer to go to a single light per side.
