    Like the lights - subtle - did you find them easy to do? For the cost of a tint spray and laquer this is on my summer list of cheap 'mods' for the car!

    Messed up the first time, did them outside on the table and the spray was just being blown away haha. Took them in my garage and did it there and was a lot better Im not sure whether to go darker or keep them as it is

    Unsure to be honest - one more coat would maybe work well, they'll look superb laquered! Tinted ones just add a little more class to the rear on the black Astra's (like mine).

    Personally, I think you should go quite a bit darker. Be rude not to with a black astra. It's on my list of things to do

    yeah very slightly darker but not so you cant see the colours, do them like the gsi lights. Then laquer them up cos it looks weird being matt

    really liking those wheels as well!

    Lights look good... but go darker! What spray did you use?
    I had a look in Halfords for some light tinting spray... couldn't find any
