i'm gonna get 06 corners, i was thinking about buying the black painted outline headlights off ebay, i'm not sure if i'm brave enough to bake my lamps lol. I'm not sure yet. I can't justify spending the money on them though cuz i'm more of a function before form type person. The taillights were fairly easy and cheap so no biggie

I've looked all over locally and noone carries it. just order it from Bob, it's a good price.

yall should know by now that every product you will use on or for your truck is available through our awesome vendors for alot cheaper than most places with better customer service.

It cost $15 for the niteshade w/shipping, $5 for the rustoleum gloss, $3 for 2" 3M blue painters tape, and $2 for some 400 grit wet sandpaper. All in all you can do it for $25 and two hours of your time. Which is mostly sanding and waiting in between coats. It took me an extra couple minutes to tape off the reverse and third brake light. It's definitely worth it. It really sets off the rear end of my truck. *TIP* Practice the niteshade and gloss on cardboard or something. Runs are a b1tch to sand down w/o noticing on the finished product.
