Hairline crack detected in spoiler! Could not see it when the spoiler was black!

3M 2k glue and it will never crack again...

Black, if you can replicate it up front. Otherwise OEM! You've done amazing work!

OEM is my vote.

The blacked out fad is overdone here in North America...

I personally prefer the full 92+ tail lights. I would simply replace the center section that currently says Toyota to the one from the 92-93's that go with the actual tail lights you have.

The OEM facelifted look has always been the best in my opinion.
