Not yet, I have the kit laying around though. I'll be installing it when I take the suspension class at my college.

Maybe it's because I painted my turn signal reflector too.

I do not like the turn signal reflector being painted, just makes it too dark IMO. The rest looks great though!

Looks good. I kinda like it. Havn't seen one done in that combo before...painted signal 'bukit' and painted 'dome'. Get them corners done !!! And dont forget to paint the outside 'ring' on the lense too!!

Hey! truck looks sweet! How well do the signals work with the reflectors painted? I am planning paining mine in the next few weeks, if i can get away with still keeping a good amount of light i want to do it the same as yours! I did my corners with nightshade and clearcoat but went a little crazy on the nightshade and the amber light is more now of a reddish glow.. I was a little concerned about tickets for it at first, but cops dont look twice at it, even when i got pulled over one day.
