06+ Tail Light Mod V. 2.0

Since I was already modding a new set of 06+ corners with a tip from another member so the trim ring isn't clear/white anymore, I decided to transfer that idea onto the 06+ tails.

I've already made two sets (one sold locally, another is in the hands of Taylor) of the first version for which I made a How-to on.
These will have a mix of harley davidson F150/Raptor theme to them. They'll be the same as the first version BUT with the outermost ring on the lens itself (not the housing) being black as well.

First version

The new set will be like these with the outermost edges of the lens being black


I have 1 coat on each lens so far and it looks like it'll turn out awesome.

Nice I'm glad that worked out for you! It's time consuming but the results are much better the spraying

mines would look awesome with the outer edge painted black. or at least tinted darker.

ive got a thin layer of nightshades on mine, enough to make it a darker red. but unless you saw it beside a stock ranger you wouldnt know its been modded. i think the black edge would look killer. will do this when the weather warms up.
