Flame it up!

Not to bad for my first time but it got dark quicker than I thought. I didnt expect it. Ehh I like the tails even though they are to dark and I will get new corners someday. And I dont know if I like the fogs yet.

i dunno if i'd have done the fogs or not... my corners are done too. spray some clearcoat over the nightshade for a semi gloss look. you'll like it better, especially on the corners.

Why leave the fogs black like that?

Not only does it look stupid, but it completely takes away the function of them.

Well then strip the night shade, sand them, and polish them and they'll be good as new.

Those corner lights ruin the truck IMO. I would also strip the tails and redo it 1/2 as dark as it is. Thats if it was my truck though, if you like it roll with it.
