    Tinted my rear lights (pictures)

    I got bored this weekend and decided to tint my rear lights

    i bought the spray off Ebay for like £7 :d

    What u think?!

    i cant remember how many coats each picture is...and i didnt take a picture of every step!

    ENJOY AND COMMENT PLEASE!












    AND THIS IS HOW THEY LOOK ON THE CAR!




    I also decided that i wanted to get rid of the slatted grill and colour code the original. After not having much luck with the badge (as it was sorta peeling) i decided to spray it until i could get another badge bit..when i get the chance to go to the scrap yard.



    YES I KNOW DIRTY CAR AND THE WHEELS LOOKING SHITE! BUT IM SELLING IT IN LIKE 2 MONTHS ANYWAY TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE SRI TURBO!


    Anyways....what you guys think? Good job?

    It might be worth laying down some lacquer to get a nice shine to them

    Post thanks

    You've just help me to decide to spray my lights instead of forking out for new ones! did it only take one can for both lights? and roughly how many coats, 6 or 7 maybe. Looking smart on your motor, nice one!
