1975 Tails and will require the tail panel and trunk lid from 75 as well as the corner pieces from 75




1976 tails these can take 76 or 77 tail panel and only 76 77 trunk lids corner pieces




1977 Tails see how they the divisor between in each bulb kind alike a raise in the plastic to divide them

Best looking of the three? Well you guys know my opinion. I'm thinking of playing around with my spare set of 76 tails to make them all red & smooth over that rectangular edge. If I ruin them it's OK. They were cracked anyways.

Also wanted to add that the 76 & 77 tails ARE different shades of red. 76 is deeper, it's not just those pictures.

Oh yeah one more thing - Screw CT.........

A quick question...I have a '76 Laguna "project". It's mostly all there...but it will still be a long project.

If I bought a '75, can you just change the tail panel, fender corners, and trunk to make it look like a '76?

Should work. I believe 75-77 should all bolt up.

It should work as long as you use all them 75 Pieces from the donar.

You may run into problems with mounting holes being different on a 76. I wanted to do the same because i loved the look of the little bowties on the lenses. I picked up a complete tail panel minus the the quarter extensions. When i went to test fit the holes didnt line up.

no big deal if drilling new holes isnt an issue but just a heads up.

Now the tail panel is a cool lit up wall hanger in the man cave.

Thanks!

And that also what I meant you would HAVE TO HAVE the Metal Tail panel from the donar to weld in, Sorry If I didn't clarify that
Would need the Metal tail section and the rest of the Pieces for that puzzle
