third brakelight paintage...

hey guys... maybe my search was just crappy but i didnt find anything about this..

What's the possibility of Niteshading the 3rd brakelight? Can it be done or is it just safe to say that you need to do a straight conversion?

The idea here is that i want my 3rd brakelight to match the rest of the truck scheme, black. So either a black brakelight or the "appearance" of black is what im after.

thanks for the help in advance!

~Mike

You would nightshade the same as doing your tails Mike. Lots of people have done it on here (including RangerJusin)

It's been done, but on the outsides, not the insides of the lense. I have done mine and Ranger1's, for some reason we both developed cracking on the coating - mine was alot worse though. Unless you are standing close up to them, you cannot see any of the defects at all.

make sure to add a couple of coats of clear after or it looks dumb!
