For a while now i've been thinking about this and wondered if it will be good. Finally i photoshopped a picture of it. Below is the picture.
The whole idea is to have a lights in the diffuser kinda like a "truck tailgate bar". I was horrible at photoshopping it, but i can assure you that it will look less like a Xmas tree and more stylish.

Red LED= runnning lights
Yellow LED= Left turn signal
(maybe white leds for backing up)
(maybe extra red leds for brakes)

The leds i am thinking of using are either 5mm or 3 mm.

Also in the picture:

Red out tail light (do you think this is better or just get it tinted)
Tinted taillight (red vs. Tint. if tinted, then it will be film tint, not spray)
Debadged (koup and forte)
Debadges KIA (nearly impossible, not gonna do it, but i wanted to see how good/bad it would be)
Tinted rear windshield (photoshop tint, thinking of tinting soon. (debating 35% vs 20%)

Not in the picture:

Maybe leds for brakes behind the deflectors. (special thanks to FearTheFox for the great idea), i am just worried if drilling to get to them might crack them.

PArdon the horrible photoshopping. Every mod listed is photoshopped, this picture was the day i picked up my car. so its completely stock in here

Someone on the forum has already debadged KIA on the trunk and smoothed it out... I'm gonna look through the posts and get the name in a minute, but it definitely looks good that way... I like the tinted tails better. Not sure I like the LEDs or not, I suppose it would depend on how well it was done, but it would be unique.

Edit: Warlock is the one that has the emblemless trunk, as you can see here: it looks awesome.
Yea, in sequence that mod would be pretty cool lol
Soldering isn't too bad, if I knew what the heck I was doing with circuitry I would give it a shot. lol Get a bread board and get goin.
