Niteshaded Tails

Just finished Niteshading my tails. Came out darker then I expected but I like em. Feel free to post up pics of your tails too, figure we could get a thread going of niteshaded tail lights.

I have another plan for my third brake light, so that explains its lack of niteshade.

Haha I actually removed it when I was in FW and drove back with out it on. But it was scratched to hell beneath it and you could see it right above the handle. So I put it back on and I'm still planning on just getting some caps for the sides to even it out.

Spend the extra money and get you a spray in bedliner instead. It'll be worth it in the long run.

lol. I was gonna wait till it stopped raining and until someone got home so they could step on the brake while I took a pic but here's a crappy cell pic to hold yall over.

I found the same font ford uses on the Ranger emblems and printed it out. Then I masked the brake light and cut the letters onto the tape. Peeled off all the tape except for the letters then niteshaded away. Basically when I brake, the person stopped behind me sees the word "Ranger".
