Default Tail light conversion

Ive got a MY99 xj8 that im repainting and basically restoring, since the rear quarter was replaced and now starting to rust under the tail light, i was wondering how different MY04+ tail lights are.

Hey Jaguarspeed,

I have looked up the images for the headlights.

I have added some pictures from the taillights for you.

First picture is a 2004 x350 taillight
Second picture is a 99 xj8 taillight
Third and last pictures is again a 2004 x350 taillight

I have no reason to believe that they would fit easily in each others casing / mounting point.

I hope this helps your question.

Someone has replaced my rear quarter and since then the seam sealer has cause terrible rust issues and since I'm in there doin a bunch of repairs I figured I'd do some custom work. I know it needs work to make them fit, I just was trying to figure out if I needed all new buckets or if they had a similar size I could modify the existing ones.
