#1
I'm thinking about getting a brz body and would love to know what light buckets you guys prefer and if anybody makes tail light buckets?

Pretty sure Yokomo and Tamiya make the thick plastic ones that are chrome and you can buy separate from the body.
HPI makes the lexan ones you gotta paint and can only get them when buying a body.
HPI Sprint 2 Flux - full carbon fiber/aluminum upgrades 50/50
HPI Sprint 2 Flux - RWD project
HPI RS4 Sport 3  - carbon fiber/aluminum shelf queen

Tamiya's road spec 86 & BRZ (yeah they did 2 different body molds) come with lexan light cups for nose & tail, with injection moulded styrene mirrors. Gotta paint the lexan cups chrome yourself.

Think the Gazoo racing 86 is same lexan cups too, but I haven't bought that yet.

Yokomo has chrome lightbuckets,

you can find them with Google here: Yokomo GT86 Lightbuckets

The Chrome buckets have pre-drilled holes for the rear lights, so they I can not use them for my GT86 build.  I want to apply Overdose Real 3D stickers which don't match with the rear lights.

I'm not sure if there's any good chrome paint for lexan to do the Tamiya buckets in my kit...

there's good chrome paint available but it's not easy if you haven't done it before

there's also Bare Metal Foil if you don't want to paint ;)
