Looks good, i just tinted mine, how about a shot with the lights off?

I tinted just the red parts of it, kept the reverse and turn signals stock, but i like what you did.

Thank you very much :)
I love to paint stuff ;)

I've never used the vinyl stuff..
I'd guess it would be easier to fix but most likley nobody will notice the bubble anyway;)

Nice job, blends in really great with your body color.

I've been debating forever with myself if I should just black out the turns and reverse signals or if I should red it out. Then I don't know if I wanna use vinyl (sp?) or paint. Paint will probably come out a little better but I like how I could just remove the vinyl if I needed or wanted to.

How visible are your turns and reverse lights now that they're blacked out?

Thank you ;)
well.. honestly I was looking at the turn signals last night,
They light up enough to see them, I think they'll be fine for night time.

During the day you can still see them but I'm not sure how well people well notice them on ?
I did go with the max 3 coats and my last coat was maybe a bit heavy.;)

Hmm I like the red idea, that might be cool..

Thanks RR, I was a little bit concerned about daytime visibility on the signals and you confirmed for me. My blacked out windows get enough attention, I don't need any other reasons to get pulled over.

I think I'll red them out, I haven't seen any members on here with that yet.

Y/w yeah I think red would look good :)
I hear you about the cops.. I'm hopefull they don't pick on me too much.

My G/f thought of something I did not..
I have stock bulbs now I have to wonder if led bulbs would brighten up the turn light enought too see better in day time use?
when I do the change over I'll let you know what I think

No because no LED bulb is as bright as a Incandescent bulb. You can even get a bulb with a ton of LED planted on it and not rival the incandescent bulbs. They may appear to be brighter but will never reflect the same.
