Plastic Dip tailights with tinted reverse lights

[/IMG] Hey guys , My first post and I finally made time to plasti dip my taillight bezel and the outer edge to match the SRT , I thought the reverse light lens looked too light and so had my tint buddy , darken them up. I think they came out pretty nice.

Re: Plastic Dip tailights with tinted reverse lights

Looks interesting - I haven't seen anyone do this before

Mind sharing how you plastic-dipped the outside of the lights?

Yep that does look nice,how visible are the reverse lights now that they're dipped. And let's see the pics of the side of your jeep with those rims.

Re: Plastic Dip tailights with tinted reverse lights

Here are Pics of reverse lights on , one with the parking lights on. Please note, I did not dip the reverse lights but covered them with 20% tint. The technique to get the border around the taillight is just to mask off the area of the taillight that you do not wish to dip and spray the rest .

Re: Plastic Dip tailights with tinted reverse lights

Thanks for compliments , Here are the side pics of the Jeep as requested. The rims are 20x9 offset +34 PVD Dark chrome Spider Monkey SRT replicas with 295/45R20 Yokohama Parada Spec-X on them. The Jeep is lowered with Eibach 28108.540 Springs. I plan to plastic drip the front Jeep emblem and the white grill fascia , hopefully it will look good.

Re: Plastic Dip tailights with tinted reverse lights

Thanks for the pics man!! Looks awesome with those rims. Im thinking on dipping in gloss black all the chrome including the side mirrors except the door handles which im debating wether to change them for a set of white ones or leave them like that, not sure yet what to do. I did a thread on things i've done so far to mine in case you wanna check it out

Things added so far to my 2015 GC Overland

Gloss black would look great too, would like to see it when done, I would not dip the door handles too much for wear and tear for the plastidip. I was thinking of getting the mirror cover and door handles sprayed white by a body shop, it might be cheaper than purchasing them new. Your mods are fantastic , keep going .
