    Car Help-Broken Taillight

    Someone backed into my car the other day, and broke the right tail light cover on my 1995 Buick Lesabre. The cheapest cover I can find is for $100. Does anyone know of a way to get just the outer plastic cheaper?
    TIA.

    Sorry about your car being totaled! Did you try a junkyard?

    There's only one (functional) in our area, and they don't have any. Online searches and our local auto parts store are all $100-$120.

    Can you just cover it with that opaque red tape? They sell it at Walmart.
