    You planning on painting it? Or replacing it with a billet one?

    Welcome to the club, If your looking for something unusual maybe you should think about the Hydro Dip. They have some cool patterns and they do good work.

    What does your stock one look like? Does it have a chrome border?

    I removed the plastic cover (amber lens) and the chrome foil (under the lens) and the black plastic that was left looks just like the bullet bow-tie on TimTom's truck (may not be as nice, but a lot cheaper)
