Went ahead and did the tails.... didnt turn out like id hoped.

I went ahead and did the "headlight mod" to my ugly a$$ tail lights. Didnt turn out like id hoped, looks better, but i think im going to smoke them. Is there a special paint I need to use?

Before.


After.















I didnt tape off enough chrome, plus my tape peeled off some chrome. It still has that gross euro look. What do you guys think?

Yeah, there was a stream of obscenities coming from my mouth while i was peeling the tape off, but i thought smoking them would look good too.

I think with the painting and a little nightshading it will look sick.

Thanks guys. Yeah, I think taping everything but the red reflectors would have been better. Oh well, lesson learned.

I like it as is.

Nightshading tail lights is the dumbest thing ever, IMO.
