well started redoing my tinted taillights....
instead of fully tinted... im keeping the lower clear section clear... so i still have my stock backuplights and can see behind me at night ;)
and my turn signals are clear so during the day people can see that im turning easier ;)

plus i think it looks alot beter....
more custom also.....

from fully tinted

tho i have to redue them again cause i rushed it and the paint ran cause i rushed it icon_sad.gif paint can was to cold and it didnt dry quick enough for my thick coats like i originaly did icon_sad.gif
next time ill have a halogen light shinnen on them to speed up the drying time!

i cannt sand them off fully and redue yet cause i dont have enough spray tint left over i dont think icon_sad.gif
so gota buy more....



well enough of the tails.... heres the front led strip that i finaly put on... now i just have to buy somemore for the sides cause my cold cathodes look they they are just about all ready to die icon_sad.gif dang water.... thier worst enemy!

thats of one of the superflux leds me playen with quickly and my turn signal going... i think with ruffly 6-8 red superflux leds in the lower clear portion it should be bright enough to see the red brake lights and still seeing the yellow turn signal as well...
i just gotta buy them now......

when using spraycans it helps to let them float in a bucket of warm water for 15-20 minutes before using them.

You can clearly see ur one on the driver side but there is no light on the pass u might want to check that out homie
