    Default Color matched tails.

    So I got bored with my tail lights and while I was at the paint store picking up supplies I had them mix up some tint to color match the taillights.

    The tint is a mixture of binder and the color code off the truck. The ratio is about 15:1 to its pretty translucent plus I thinned it a bit also.
    Then after testing the visibility I decided..why stop and tinting them? Why dip them in a clear/silver Carbon fiber?

    Well I layed down some clear coat on it today. I will post some pics of it on the truck tomorrow or so...its humid here right now so I may allow the clear to harden up an extra day.

    And for those of you have questions on if its legal....depends on your state. Arizona law ony requires your taillights to be visible from 500 ft...doesnt regulate whats covering them.
