Tail-Light Help

im trying to start building my 97 accord back up with good looks like my old AV6 used to have.. Im looking at some tail lights to get but cant decide which ones..

I would like to try these




But i would also like to go back with the tails i used to have on my AV6.. These



And what they looked like on my car.. My new car is same color



I really dont like the other styles out there that much.. But what do you guys think?

cant you just bust up the amber inside the light and empty out the pieces (like 01-02 sedan tails)?
