I like this look personally
You do know those aren’t westy tails, right? Those are facelift euro tails. Procedure is the same though. Swap tail panel. It’s like 100 spot welds that have to be drilled out. Weld in new panel. Sort the wiring.

This looks like a Euro car, but this will give you an idea of the holes needed. To my old eyes, it looks like you might be able to simply cut the existing panel. Maybe someone in the know will chime in.

If you simply dont like the vertical lens look, these are available in the aftermarket and could easily be tinted red. One word of caution - my car came with these and they leaked like crazy. I never looked into why, as i went back to stock.

They do look similar to the clear lens euros:
