need 'Nightshade' suggestions/comments

Alright up top we have 'stock', middle we have 'all black', bottom we have 'all but reverse'. Which one?





I'm leaning twords all but the reverse lights, though it looks like a pain to tape that all off, but is do-able I'm sure. I'm not going too dark, probably 3 or 4 coats from the pictures I've seen. Actually maybe a little darker than the photoshopped pics.

I would do all but reverse just cause I like the look of it.
Its all up to you though. The entire tailight tinted also looks good too.

if youre only going that light, then do it all. mine are probably close to that darkness and i still get decent light output from my reverse lights.

def tape off the reverse light, and wet sand with 1000 and 2000 followed by some sort of polish so they look nice and glossy

Shaded, i didn't want to go with a complete blackout look of course. But here is the end result. Came out alright, i think it was a little more humid than i'd have liked it to be for painting something. But it was my only day to really get it done. Don't mind the R/T badge, thats justified by my big yellow Mopar in the garage :)

Ohhh nice a 60's stang in the garage too. Tails look good, might want to wet sand them with some really fine grit and then polish to make them less matte finish unless thats what you want.

i have a feeling i'll do more damage than good if i try and wet sand them and such. if i were to try it, i'd start on the 3rd brake..since thats cheapest lol. I'll probably just leave 'em as is.

Yea there is a '72 Challenger, '68 Mustang and a '72 Cuda in the garage.
