hmm yah looks pretty good even with just straight white, a bit surprised it came out so good
The other way to do this is to add the paint to some clear. You could do a 5:1 mixture and paint the entire lens and still have enough transparency so that your brake/parking lights are still visible.
I plan on color matching my taillights but right now it seems I only have time for mods on other peoples autos!
Have you done that before? Because that has caught my attention haha
It looks really good. I cant do anything like that here in Myrtle Beach, Probably would get a ticket very quickly. They don't play here when it comes to modifying any lights!!!
@Burden...Nice job. you chose a good thickness. Thanks for sharing the pics.
i was thinking about doing what sstoner said but i figuered the cops would of nailed me big time plus with all of our snow storms i rather have the person behind me see me
Burden, I think you made a solid decision for several reasons. 1) You're street legal. 2) You could have gotten away with blacking out your tails but everyone with white trucks tends to black out/tint the tails and go black/white in look. 3) Your approach gives you a look all your own.
As for the cops nailing you, I doubt it. You might get pulled but given your profession I'd think professional courtesy would be extended. That's the way the world tends to work...
burd, that came out great! awesome job with it. Looks identical to the picture you showed me, thumbs up! How many coats did you go with?
It reminds me of the old caddy lights that people put on silverados.
thanks guys i lost track of coats but i made sure i did about 4 coats in black until i could not see the light anymore and the did alot of light coats of white to make sure it dried and did run and the i did about another 4 coats of clear.
that was the idea behind it 7 im still looking at adding the old caddy lights when the dent is fixed and i figuer out what im going to do with my reverse lights
