ok i have wanted a 98-up hatch for along time..but i was thinkin if i removed the black trim and painted the c-piller's to match it would look alot light a 98-up hatch..and it does..i found what this guy did..and i think it's what im gonna do to mine..take a look





what do you think? i plan to do it this summer :!:



i think i would have a 03 expy hatch door latch put in to this one..so it look's costom

I think that pic loks a ton better than stock. I have always hated the look with that black trim because it is too busy. I say go for it.

I like that look alot, I just wish it was a different color because that blue is hard on the eyes




But you're definitely onto something. Certainly would be cheaper and easier then replacing the entire hatch and taillights. I think you should also consider shaving the rear wiper off unless you need it.

i use my rear wiper ALL THE TIME!! i would go cray without it..whenever my front one's are on my rear one is also on..the wiper stay's nomatter what
but i have my wiper arm's painted to match so that will help it "blend"



yeah it would be cheaper..98-01 hatch is about $450 then paint and custom stuff done to it..so i think i will do this..but i would also paint that black steel around the 3rd beak light to match..



i kinda like that blue

Alright I won't. Good luck with your new rear hatch idea. The painted wiper arm looks nice.

trim looks cool, it's original! i'm not a fan of the painted handle and wiper...that's just me tho. think shaved all the way would 'look' better...but i understand cuz i wouldn't ditch my wiper/handle either...
