Finally did my tail lights...

So, I haven't mounted them yet since the clear is drying still, but here's a couple pics. Will update with newpics tomorrow.



I used the OEM paint code and added some extra goodies to thin it out and make it almost a candy color. I could go darker, but I don't want the lights too dim.


This pic is with the flash and you can tell the difference on how transparrent they are when light is added.


The rest are without flash in normal light.

Re: Finally did my tail lights...

I probably will later...

... I really like the light output of them now, but I think I can go darker without a problem still.

Re: Finally did my tail lights...

Looks good though. Are you going to do the quad tail mod?

Re: Finally did my tail lights...

I like it a lot man

If you want to go darker I suggest putting a light coat on the reverse so it wouldn't clash too much.

Re: Finally did my tail lights...

Unless you're really concerned with the light output, I think you could probably go a little darker. I really like how you did the third brake light.

Oh, and don't listen to Chuck, leave the reverse untouched.

If I do them darker.They will be closer to the color of the 3rd brake light. You can't see it in these garage pictures, but I did use the same paint that it on the body for the tails too, but in the low light, and with as few coats I put it looks black.

I'm not touching the last comment....

Re: Finally did my tail lights...

Looks great! IMO, I'd go a little darker ( even tho I haven't done mine yet ).
