Headlight/Corner/Tailights All Painted! (And washed)

Ok so I may not have painted the heads and corners, but I think they look pretty dang awesome. Just couldn't get over the fact that I had to bake my headlights lol. Anyways, I did do the niteshading on the taillights. That took every bit of 30 minutes. Then I washed the truck, dried it, and applied mothers showtime to everything besides the tires. Onward to the pics!

Before:


After:










Then I did a pretty decent burnout lol.



Old Headlights and Corners that will be for sale pretty soon when I can get to making the headlights look a little better.

HOLY MACKERAL!!!

That looks AWESOME on your truck dude. Something about the black and white drives me crazy.

I could have modded the lights for you haha. Just be careful with the nightshaded tails. Mine are that dark as well, and I havnt had any problems with police. BUT, be careful while in reverse.

Hahaha thanks dude! Yeah the black and white is what got me going too. I just couldn't stop painting crap black!!

Ah I know you could have done them, and I wish I could have given them to you to save a little bit of money, but I would have been a couple of days without a truck and the Mustang would not be a very good tow vehicle for the mowers and crap lol. Yeah I didn't want to completely black out the tails due to the police, but I have noticed it is a little harder to see going backwards at night now, especially with the window tint, but I just roll the window down lol.

Hurley: Yeah the pics make the tails look really dark. In person you can see the red pretty well, especially at night. I just wanted a good smoked look. Thanks for the compliment.

Robert: Thanks man! Got your pm by the way.

Korey: you're the third or fourth hater on my grill lol. Idk if I can bring myself to get rid of it after paying the price for it. But thanks for the compliment! I, like you, usually don't like niteshade, so I went junking got another set of tails, and painted them. Then put the old and the painted one on at the same time and ended up going with the painted ones due to black and white color scheme I've got going on.
