My $2 Stillen Install...ha ha
 
I see everyone with with Stillen covers on those ugly amber reflectors...are they a complete face lift??? Yes!! But...only if you have the cash to buy them and get them painted to match. So...here's my $2 investment and an hour of time. Let me know if you guys think its worth keeping. I dont think it looks bad at all...

Ha ha...surprisingly JAYBEE, vinyl!! They dont sell white Plastidip in my area...yellow and black. I just cut out a template from a paper plate (stong but flexible) and sat it right on some white vinyl I had purchased off eBay and cut it out with an Xacto knife! Easy mod! I have more pics...here's a couple below!

those look exactly the same as my $70 painted fiberglass ones...but in the last pic it looks like the finish is different in low light? either way, for the $ u can't beat it!

You have to forgive the pic, iPhone...good for some things, not the best for introducing something like this...the finish blends great, no different then paint-to-match looks...and without the extra bulk from the fiberglass. Now for clear bulbs instead of the amber!

I did that as a temp to see if I really wanted the stillens. Then I liked them so I bought the stillens.. looks great!

They have EVERY color! On eBay his screen name is VinylMayhem1996, they have Facebook too...Vinyl Mayhem is the name. I ended up paying .81 cents per 12"x15"...good stuff, stretches great without heating and doesn't hesitate to still stick.
