Accord coupe center taillight

I want to have a completely chrome and clear center taillight without red lenses like in these links. Are these available to buy or do I have to paint them myself?

I've literally look at every site I could find that carries taillight and I couldnt find the clear center piece.

Here's what I am not looking for:

http://www.matrixracing.com/BI1928Details.htm

I already plan to buy clear side altezzas but I dont want the centerpiece that has the 2 red reflectors circles on it. I am looking for a clear/chrome center piece with no red reflector just like in the other links I provided.

sorry for not clearing things up, i bought the clear tails from them, and got all three pieces -_-. email them, doesn't hurt to ask questions =) just to make sure.

here are pictures of my un-used center tail light =P, still has the plastic wrap around the tail light too.

Pretty nice but I still like the stock tails better.

Shaved>Stock>Clear>TYC's (sometimes)>Busted trunk.

TO me:
TYC>shaved> THE REST...>stock...

For 1 thing, the TYC always make ur ride look newer and dont look like its getting old.
For 1 more thing, shaved tailight look cool, but not really too hot, my opinion only.
BTW, how can we actually SEE that the Stock looks BETTER than TYC??
I brought my car to many many shops and They all love my TYC and Always comment them OVER the stock, even in Honda dealler...When it first came out, people sometime followed me to ask what kind of taillight that is...and always look better to them than stock !!!

I have just recieved my center taillight but I have a question. The trunk keyhole on the top surface layer of the taillight seems to be cut off center compared to the actual keyhole circle which is cut into the taillight. Is this suppose to be this way?

I would have to disagree... How does it make your car look newer? To me it's just another generation of altezza's. They will be out of style in a year while the stockers will still be going strong. But like you said, its your opinion that matters. Here is a pic mine with ghost effect.

The small cut center is so off center of the keyhole that it is almost to the end of the hole on the taillight which means its about 50% off center. Is there any way that I can fix this? Would it be advisable to drill the hole to make it bigger?

I don't know... stock still looks good but shaved is best IMO.

I only like TYC's on certain cars, sometimes they look funny.

TYC's are the biggest waste of money. The stock Lights looks a trillion times better.
