My Gf finally got her Christmas present from me

Been working on it for about a week or so, she wanted her side mouldings painted and it kinda got out of hand...

Before(she takes lousy pics):








After:






















She fell in love with it! I was hoping she would since it is kinda permanent. I had my paint supplier make a custom color for this. It started out as an anthracite metallic, he added some bronze metallic to it and a couple other things. Once it gets cleaned up some, and she makes up her mind on some wheels, I will post more pics.

I sure will. I usually charge 50 bucks per set of tails. The more lenses you send, the better discount you get. I use automotive clear(2 coats) that will not fade or haze over time. You can wax them just like your truck. With any type of paint work, I offer a minimum of a 1 year warranty against fade or peeling.

I sure will. Almost any lens can be done, some headlights and rarely some tails dont like niteshade, it cracks when you spray it on(havent figured out the remedy for it yet) and looks like crap.
