Shaved, and Niteshaded!

Well finally got around to niteshading my tails and my third brake light.

I think it came out ok.

Its a little bit to flat for my taste. But i'll get around to putting some clearcoat on soon.

Also got a shaved tailgate. It's got some dents and a little rust but i'm getting a new one over summer.

Oh yea. and i got a FREE UWS tool box. (getting powdercoated black next week)

Eh too dark for me. You need to lower your truck so that roll pan and shaved tailgate will look right.

A clear coat will do wonders! Tail gate looks good too.

Just do thin coats and wait in between for it to dry to see what it's gonna look like... If it's not enough, apply more then wait, etc...

I hate it when people NS the whole tail and don't mask the reverse lights... Looks like poop if you ask me... When you do that haha

His look good though... Just add a few clear coats
