Can you paint vinyl so that it matches the body color perfectly? I'm thinking about doing this because I don't want to mess up my stock taillight.

I would have left it stock.

Crono139 has a cl-s 6spd swap also right? I think I saw more pictures of his car over at honda-tech.com...

I'm going to paint a altezza center piece all body color. As for reverse lights, I haven't figured that out. I might get clear taillights and paint the lower half red and have the reverse up with the blinker somehow.

yea definately always check ebay i won black housing headlights and the altezza center tail for 1 dollar. Shipping was 15 so i paid 16 bucks total. So if I don't like the look of the painted tail than no big deal.

A decent graphics shop should be able to do this for you. If you are knowlegeable of Adobe Illustrator, then you can make the design and have the shop print and cut it for you.
